    Rodger, Thanks for the input. Stuff such as this is good to know. I have a Loftness external cooler on my SCL95. The cooler keeps the hydraulic fluid at a consistent 127-160 degrees when ambient temp is 95+ degrees. When checking the radiators with a laser thermometer, the right side of the...

    I’m trying to find a rental unit to test the head. I’ve narrowed it down to; when the mulcher runs, it puts a load on the engine. The load caused the heat buildup. Not sure if something is wrong with the engine that’s causing loss of torque, or if the hydraulic’s are causing a load on the...

    The Loftness external cooler is nearly $10k. I don’t believe mine isn’t helping to keep the machine cool at all. On Tuesday, I’m going to bypass my external cooler to assure that external cooler is not causing the overheating.

    This is a very good question. Yes, the injectors were sent out for testing. Three were pushing too much fuel. All four were replaced although, replacing the injectors did not fix the overheating problem.

    Hi, I’ve been trying to service customers with the machine, running 15 minutes and stopping for 5 minutes. Today I took the radiator in for a complete cleaning and coolant and air flow tests.

    I can use any other implement and the SVL95 won’t overheat. Although, if the same head is run on a SVL75 instead of a SVL95, the SVL75 doesn't overheat. SVL75’s doesn’t have a DOT system.
