Last Month we introduced you to Nortrax, a John Deere dealer with 52 stores throughout the United States and Canada. Nortrax recognized that evolving emissions regulations would confront contractors with new challenges, and the company went above and beyond to educate employees and customers about the realities, and manageable solutions.
When we sat down with Bill Pyles, Notrax’s vice president of service, he told us that an educated contractor is their best customer. “They ask us tougher questions, prepare more carefully, and ultimately enjoy a seamless transition to the new regulatory environment,” he noted.
So what are some of the questions Bill receives on a regular basis? Below we’ve outlined four of the most common:
1. What do I need to know about regeneration (exhaust filter cleaning)?
I tell customers that it is really important to understand how passive regeneration works, and we always offer to help train their teams. John Deere has given us some helpful videos to teach that. If you understand how passive regeneration works in the background during operation, then you’ll know how to get the most out of your iron by reducing your idling time. Also, always remember to keep the switch on “auto-enable” so that regeneration takes place without the operator’s intervention.
