Im new owner of a rotor machine, and just wondering, where you guys make your pull down mark at? I know my 1460 runs at 2640 RPM while sitting, so if rotor is say runnat 800 in wheat, how far do you look at pulling it down?

On our old 1480 the engine ran 2700 no load, and I pulled it down to about 2590. The alarm would beep at 2550 and would give an intermittent chirp at something like 2570. It was pretty easy to keep a constant load on the engine.

I hope you like the 1460.

They tend to slow with age. Our 1480 did 17 when I first started driving it, but it only did 15 by the time we traded it. I would bet the cable that runs the hydrostat system needs to be adjusted. It's up on the left side near the auxiliary pump. My memory is fuzzy on this, I don't remember the exact procedure, but I'm sure someone here knows for sure. I don't remember it being much of a job on the 1680. After we made an adjustment it went from 12 miles per hour to near 20.

I think you can adjust when the alarm comes on. I know you can on the 16 series. I try to stay loaded between 2500 and 2550. I would stay near 2550 if the injector pump hasn't been turned up to lowere the possibility of a chokeup
