Hi Cooter:

I talked to a guy at one of farm shows and he said they worked well in their equipment, good fuel savings....he was a farmer but I did not know him.

Is there a website with other information that you are looking at.

Thanks

Bronco

I know a few guys who have used the chips - they seem to work, but my mechanic buddy says that you will shorten engine life. I know that using the chip voids any warranty so I don't think you'd want to use one on a new tractor.

I just saw them listed at Shoup Manufacturing. Thinking about getting one.

If there was a warranty issue I was told to unplug the module, there is no traceability back to the engine's computer.

I have heard of a few guys trying these chips and I always wondered about the costs vers the savings in fuel that they think you will get...any idea on that? Also why would the machinery companies not put them in them selves and pass on the savings to their customers....just wondering

I bought one and put it on the tractor in the yard the other day. At 7miles per hour full throttle, on the stock setting at width set at 20' I was at .9 gal/acre. 15% at .7 gal/acre, and at 30% increase horsepower I was using .5 gal/acre. Accordin to this you save fuel.. See what happens in the field. My tractor power usage was 50% at stock and went sown to 30% when the module chip was at a 30% increase.

We run chips on all of our tractors. The fuel economy is a little better but the real savings is a chip will give you the horsepower for $500-$600 that you would have to pay $20000 for from the manufacture. We put them on brand new tractors with no problems. It will void warranty if caught by dealer but they are undetectable when removed. However now some manufactures are putting cable locks (similar to whats on a electric meter) where chip plugs in. If cable is cut warranty is voided.
