Good morning from Austria!
@ David-L: do you have any problems with your TJ225? The Eaton axles with the WR5 planetaries are better than the "old" Rockwell axles?
My father was working 20 years ago with the same machine and he was very lucky with it, because the engine has a lot of power and he never had problems with the machine.
Being air cooled its good to know your temp gauge is working and the fan belt has a emergency switch on it which is suppose to turn on a red light in cab. I also would tie a piece of foresters flagging tape to the left front side panel where there air comes out halfway up that mesh panel. If the fan is blowing air through the cylinder jugs that flagging tape is flying straight out. I made sure I could see it from the cab and is more foolproof that the gauges in my opinion. If you were in the states I would be trying get that from you. Nice looking Timberjack. keep those jug fins clean too in the summer and if you have a leaky fire ring on top of the jug fix it as it collects dust as it gets oily and stops air circulation. more pics please sir.
In two days from now, tomorrow will be yesterday.

That is the light comes on when the belt brakes and activates the red light.

Good morning,

in Austria we are lucky that we not have this problems about the engines, but only at this kind of machine. Trucks and cars have this problems if they are to old. But if they have an official paper from the past as the vehicles were new, so you can drive with them also today.

Working machines like the Timberjack, a combine or a tractor donīt have this problems. But the European Union is working on something like that you have at the USA.

Today my brother and also my father are working the first day with the TJ225 in the forest to pull large oaks with arround 1m diameter.
They told me, that the winch is pulling in the rope and if they stop the winch, then the tree goes arround 10-20 cm back to the ground and then the brake of the winch is fix.
So whatīs the reason for this and what can I do against?
Is there only some air in the hydraulic system for the winchbrake or is there something to adjust?
Looking forward reading something from the TJ-specialists! :)
Thanks in advance.

Emissions legislation (laws/ rules) is often by stealth/ in secret.

UK was still part of Europe in 2018 (so were still on the European environmental programs)
https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/691313/improving-air-quality-non-road-mobile-machinery-condoc.pdf

page 10/11
"1.10 Some of the new requirements introduced by EU #2016/1628 include:

- procedures defined for taking a decision to withdraw the type
approval of an engine that presents a risk to the environment or
public health."

There appear to be exemptions that can be applied for.

This interim document was also about giving UK officials the right to go onto property/ land to find old engines etc.  Looks like a 2021? introduction for this set of rules for some parts of Europe, probably being discussed behind closed doors in other parts.

It is the timing between the winch clutch application/release and the winch brake release /application
It is set by adjusting the brake cylinder travel to between 9/16  inch and 5/8 inch.
Two adjusting nuts and the rod is held from turning by a  milled flat.
I m quoting fro an original shop service manual.
You will have to convert to metric if you don't have and imperial ruler
hope this helps
cheers

Hi,

I have adjusted the winch and now itīs working perfect. I have ordered a manual and also a repair manual from John Deere and there I have also found the information about the adjustment.

Best regards, max
