Got a versatile 2425 on triples, switched from a60ft seedhawk to jd 1830 air drill this year same width an amount of shanks, but seem to be having real trouble pulling jd bar. Jd bar is a lot heavier but really surprised at how hard the tractor is pulling an fuel use, perhaps tractor has some issues. Any suggestions?

we have a 62ft hawk with 800 bushel tank 2425 plays with it only time we have issues if really wet

is it spinning or just low on power ?

Had a cummins mechanic out with computer plugged into ECM, engine is only getting 85% percent fuel under load and 20% turbo boost. He's not familiar with industrial n14 celect motors so is unsure if normal.

No that doesn't sound correct, check aftercooler hoses and clamps, where there any codes? follow fuel line coming in to engine, I don't remember if N-14 has a inlet fuel filter, or if its goes direct to cooling fuel plate under ecm, sounds like a boost issue or fuel, Scott.

Got numbers? 85% of what for fuel? Scott is correct if the engine doesn't see boost pressure it won't go to full fuel. It should use up to 25gph and produce around 30psi boost pressure. Have you checked your air filters and intake, maybe you have a bird's nest in there or something. Your fuel filter or suction could be plugged, it's real easy to check the suction on those just disconnect the suction hose at the bottom of the tank and expect allot of fuel.

the guy from cummins did some research an said the 85% fuel when under heavy load was a safety feature to protect transmission. computer said it was getting full fuel when under moderate load, doesn't seem to make a lot of sense.
