    1026R: operating temperature?

    The ambient here is 30 degrees F. I haven't been able to work my tractor very hard at all since I've owned it, due to being new and no grass to cut. What are other new owners seeing for a reading on the temperature gauge?

    Canadian Operating Temp Experience

    Here in Nova Scotia the ambient temps are cooler at this time of year (Avg 5-10 Deg C) and I work my tractor fairly hard with grading & moving fill/gravel etc. My experience is that the tractor warms up within 5 minutes and maintains a relatively steady temperature of about 20% of full scale deflection ( just a little warmer that that shown on your picture). I'm cool with that!

    My experience has shown the same. About 20% of scale, indicating a little warmer than your picture.

    I should have mentioned that the gauge reading as pictured was directly after .5hrs run time @ 2500 rpm clearing 3" snow from my driveway with FEL. I popped the hood and put my hand on the rocker cover, I would estimate about 100 degrees F. It just seems a little too cold to me.

    Same here! Have yet to see anything much higher on either of mine even on some of the last quite warm days!
    Cheers

    I just put another hour on mine in about 40 degree weather and again the temp gauge was the same. It would be nice if the gauge had graduated numbers instead of just a green and red range.

    DS, is this your first diesel engine? If so its normal for diesel's to run cooler than you think they should unless you are really working them-and I am sure your not working it hard. Think of all the big trucks that cover the grill's in the winter to help keep the temps up.

    I own several diesels. Worked on many and love them all! My favorite is a Cummins B5.9. It does the quarter mile in 12 seconds flat weighing in at 7500lbs. Approx 550-600 hp, 1000-1200 ft lbs, but never been dynoed just calculated estimates.

    I was thinking this gauge reading is the normal operating temp for this model tractor. I don't know what the scale is because there is no numbers. I guess the engineers assume that the owner can only interpret "green means good, red means hot/bad".

    I just checked on JDparts, looks like the standard thermostat is a 160 degree. JPparts also lists an optional 180 degree.
