I know there is rumours of phasing out the DEF now. Question is what will come next?

I still have to update the group, and will know more tomorrow, but it seems like when you email the guy in charge of service for the entire country, it gets some attention. And all of a sudden the ‘back ordered’ parts show up at the dealer too.

The injection pressures are high enough to allllmost eliminate the soot the dpf catches. They are moving to a single can SCR for NOX reduction.

The regen trucks CAN work but owners, drivers and fleets usually are not investing the labor to be proactive. Couple that with a clueless tech or two and you got a recipe for disaster.

Hagerty still insures old trucks. I think from time to time to start rehabbing older trucks for sale. Then I look at the fuck head occupying the White House

After much research, I bought this little guy last summer, its a 2020 model year, Kubota down rated a 33hp engine by lowering max revs to meet Tier 4 emissions.

Its mechanically injected, with no computer, sensors, or emissions bullshit.

Id have liked the bigger motor, and I understand they are selling the snot out of this exact tractor/engine combo, because its the only compact tractor they have that does not have complete emissions on it.

I actually went looking for a used unit to avoid emissions altogether, but the prices where insane for private party used, so I managed to only spend about $5k more for brand new.

I ran the John Deere 5075E again today and just like last week it had the exhaust temp light on as soon as I started the tractor, and the stack was cold enough I could hold my hand on it.

I had to add a quart of oil and I gave it a heavy dose of stanadyne supplement in the fuel because it and their diesel tank sit outside uncovered. After 10 minutes of idling while I unhooked the spreader, took the loader off, and hooked up a box blade, the regen light came on with a couple other warning lights.

I hit the button for a parked regen and it revved up and started counting out numbers on the dash. I waited 20 minutes and it made it through stage one and started counting stage 2 which was going much slower. I decided to try and use the tractor and see if it would continue to regen while it was running. Putting it in gear made it drop back to an idle and the regen light stayed on. I pulled the box scraper for about 20 minutes and kept the throttle at the same rpm it was holding when I had it parked and it continued counting through stage 2 and eventually finished and most of the lights on the dash went out.

After running at an idle while I put the loader back on, the exhaust temp light went out.

I hooked it up to a 12ft harrowgator and drug the outdoor arena next and ran it fairly hard for 20 minutes and everything operated normally with no warning lights. Hopefully it will be good for a week or two now, but with the jobs they normally use it for I think it is destined for trouble

More fun with this shit.

I was at TSC today and tried to buy a jug of DEF. I have mostly run Blue DEF as that's that all the local stores carry and its always around $13 for a 2.5 gallon jug.
Today the only thing TSC had in stock was Blue "PLATINUM" DEF which cost $25 a 2.5 gallon jug. I didn't bother to read too much on it but I got the impression that this is considered premium DEF. I don't know what the benefits are (maybe I can pass a piss test with it?) supposed to be but I went somewhere else and bought a jug of regular for $13.
