Diesel Particle Filter Posted by Rick on 11/14/2015

This had great performance for the first 60 hours, then it shut down and would not start. The dealer service, however, was great. They came and picked up the tractor, did some troubleshooting and revealed that the DPF was clogged up.

The warranty service fixed everything; however, the Branson tech rep indicated that the new tractors with DPF have to be run at or above 2,000 rpm for the filter to burn off the particulate. I am not sure this is a good idea for long engine life. As time goes on, I will be paying attention for those who may find a work around for these DPF filters.
