The 7280R was the biggest tractor of this range for this year. Its a big brute designed mainly as a draft tractor but has a 50kph box and front suspension so it can rattle along the road if needs be. Its fitted with a Saur-Danfoss IVT transmission
Reason for Job:
This tractor has not arrived from local farm and has covered over 12000 engine hours
Tractor had stopped driving altogether with a lot of steel debris in oil
Main problems found:
Transmission was stripped to unveil one of the worst failings we at Swinnerton had ever seen. Many of the bearings had failed and in-turn broken most teeth off most shafts and planetary setups. Further more the clutch packs had failed so badly they had wrecked the outer and inner cans
Wash tractor thoroughly
Remove cab then transmission from tractor in workshop
Strip transmission , replace bearings, clutch packs and broken gears
Re-fit gearbox and put back end back on tractor
Then give a hour on dyno to check for leaks at temperature
Finally a 2 hour session on a set of discs to ensure machine was functioning perfectly
