“We focused on serviceability using 3D images before the first prototype
was even manufactured. Serviceability was a design priority from the start,”
says Field Service Manager Jyrki Lampinen.
Special attention has been paid to easy everyday use and maintenance.
For example, the fuel and AdBlue tanks can be filled up easily at chest level
when standing beside the tractor. The radiator package also opens easily for
cleaning. The hydraulic oil level may be checked through a sight glass in the
side of the tank each time the driver climbs the steps into the cab. The transmission oil level may also be checked through a
sight glass at the rear of the tractor. The dipstick for checking engine oil is
located by the steps to the cab and easily reached.
“Other less regular maintenance jobs are also simple: All grease points
are easily accessible though some still require climbing under the tractor. The
battery is service-free. The engine air filter can be changed while standing
beside the tractor, and the cab air filter can be changed by standing on the
steps. Topping up engine oil, coolant and windshield washer fluid is also very
easy,” Lampinen states.
Routine servicing by professionals ensures that the tractor is available
when needed while also retaining the tractor’s resale value. This routine
servicing, including adjusting engine valves, can now be performed more quickly
than ever. Other professional servicing including changing the urea filter, has
also been designed to be quick and easy, saving the customer both time and
