 Dealer said don't worry about break in period??

Hi. I just bought a TC24D that had 7 hours on it. I asked the dealer if I should take it easy for the first few hours, because I have seen something about that discussed here before. He just said "Let er' rip", which made me wonder what the hey to do. Is he wrong, or since it's already been run 7 hours, do I not need to worry about breaking it in? Other than that, and a few little things that caused me to think he may not know as much as he could about this machine, he is alright. I've gotten good feedback from the locals who have dealt with him before. Thanks.

Bobby

I think that if there were particular break-in requirements then they'd be stated in owner's manuals. I also think that most tractor engines now are 'run-in' prior to sale so the old ideas of break-in are mostly finished before the tractor is delivered. That's pretty much what the dealer seems to be saying.

In general for a new engine I suppose it's still a good idea to vary the load and rpm frequently and avoid max rpm. It's also good to avoid lugging any diesel and also to watch the temp gauge but that's especially true for new engines. I'd check with the dealer if there's any thought of switching the oils to synthetics. Some manufacturers don't recommend using synthetics before 250 hours. Of course, some manufacturers may not recommend synthetics at all.

It's frequently mentioned here that Kubota recommends a break-in period, but JD doesn't mention it in the manual and it sounds as if NH doesn't either. Tom makes some good points about general new engine issues.

Tom
I can speak for CNH 285 pto and down to 200. We run our tractors for about 20min. then run em around the test track for maybe 10 more min. Thats it!! (the first 20 min. may be pushing it to, more like 12 min. to make sure all the fluids and functions are working. If there are any problems detected we send them to our tractor repair area and they are gone over with a fine tooth comb then. Personelly, I would want one of the tractors that have been found to have a minor flaw with the interior of the cab. Then for sure it will be thouroghly checked out.
For the most part (this year) we have had very few problems. If we do have a problem it is almost always fixed before it leaves the plant, there are a few exceptions though!

takes 5 hours to correctly break in you engine and it involves the use of a dyno. they dont come from NH broken in. these guildlines are published by NH and you dealer will or should have a copy. We are a NH dealer in central Indiana.

just for the record, as a former JD tech I know that Deere tractors also should be dyno broke. they publish the same set of guide lines for doing so.

If they are supposed to be broken in on a dyno then it should be done at the factory. Who the heck has a dyno in their garage?
