The risks of chipping/tuning equipment

Farm Equipment Magazine has a great story about the risks of tuning it chipping equipment to get around emissions standards or to increase a combine/tractorís horsepower. It voids warranty if you do it.

Depends on your dealer for warranty. I know a couple that donít care and actually tell customers to delete emissions cause they are sick of fixing it and having the customer down.

I wouldn't worry about the warranty as much as a cheap tune. A cheap tune can just increase rail pressure or advance timing or... A cheap or poor tune can drastically shorten the engine and power train life. Or just make them blow up. Find a good tune for what you are using the machine for. They can increase the life of the machine depending on what machine it is.

Great first post Paul Roberts.

You didnít think we didnít know that did you?

Some dealers are actually working with us and doing non-emissions warranty work. Because thatís the 4% of actual warranty work!

If the MFG’s could build these emission sustems to be reliable, it wouldn’t be an issue. I’m sure every dealer would lay-off 1 or mechanics if all the emissions just disappeared.

What an insightful first post.

Most warranty is one to two years so who really gives a crap. Love when I get told to not delete because it’s got warranty for five years... whose paying for my downtime?

Any inquiries-

Both of my local dealers recommend deleting, one after warranty the other soon as possible. This spring dealers mechanic spent 5 hours pulling everything apart and replacing parts on a tier 4B Quadtrac. Not sure how they can say that they are more reliable now,what a pile of Bull.

Wish this newer Deere stuff could be deleted. Someone should figure it out soon enough.
