  • Follow all the operating and maintenance instructions. If you do so, your tractor will give you many years of economic and trouble-free operation. You will find an overview of all maintenance operations in the Service Schedule in this Manual.
  • Maintenance and repair work should be carried only at your service workshop. see also the "Important service and maintenance information".
