Diagnosing High-Tech Farm Equipment Is Simplified With Pico Automotive Kits From Saelig.

Maintaining gas and diesel powered farm equipment has become increasingly challenging. The operating condition of tractors and other farm machinery can affect the fuel efficiency and reliability, so maintenance is crucial for energy and financial savings. What is needed is a better, faster way to locally fix a problem that shuts agricultural equipment down.  For instance, it can take days for a repair technician to get out to the farm, diagnose a minor hydraulic sensor issue, order the part, and swap out the sensor, leaving the tractor – and the field - lying fallow.  Farmers often want to do more than just change his tractor’s oil - they’d like to repair their equipment themselves, equipment that is very expensive.  When a machine breaks or needs maintenance, farmers are reluctantly dependent on others, when they have been maintaining their own equipment since the plow.  And as the cost and hassle of repairing modern tractors has soared, the demand for older tractors with fewer digital bells and whistles has picked up - simpler machines that farmers can maintain themselves.

Pico AutomotiveKits make diagnosing agricultural vehicle problems simple, intuitive, and logical. They come with a variety of accessories to test and diagnose a multitude of vehicle components, with help and advice included in the PicoScope 6 software. 
The award-winning selection of Pico Automotive Kits work with any combustion engine and make it easier and faster to find and fix problems. The free PicoScope Automotive software package runs on any Windows computer to form a powerful diagnostic oscilloscope, battery tester, and vacuum/pressure tester - and also lets users quickly diagnose noise and vibration problems to head-off looming problems.  PicoScope comes with over 150 different tests, more than 2500 waveforms, and is safe to use with no risk to the vehicles or equipment, thanks to its non-intrusive testing methods.  PicoScope can test: injectors and fuel pumps, starter and charging circuits, batteries, alternators and starter motors, lambda, airflow, ABS and MAP sensors, electronic throttle control, CAN bus, LIN bus and FlexRay signals, compression test, cylinder balance, misfires, etc.

The Pico Automotive Diesel Kit, for instance, includes: current clamps, premium test leads, fuse extension leads, break–out leads, oscilloscope probes, a 10:1 attenuator, flexible back-pinning probes, multimeter probes, battery clips, automotive software CD-ROM, training resources DVD, a quick-start guide, a 6ft USB cable, all in a sturdy carry case - just add a PC to complete this versatile test tool.

Engines in farming equipment must be serviced to insure that they operate efficiently, producing fuel savings and horsepower increases that offer substantial savings in money and time. Pico Automotive Kits are the ideal tool for hands-on machine problem diagnosis.  Made by Pico Technology, Europe’s award-winning oscilloscope adapter manufacturer, Pico Automotive Kits are available from Saelig Company, Inc. their USA technical distributor.
