    Default What is the normal idle speed?

    My CK27HST idles at 1,000Rpm. Is this normal in a 3 cyl diesel?

    My Mahindra idles about 800 as well. After I start it I set to 1000 for a few minutes to warms up. I'm sure the is an adjustment to slow yours down if your owners manual specs show it should be lower.

    I just read the manual from cover to cover and there is nothing in it about idle speeds.

    The only diesels I have ever used are in big trucks and they idle around 600-750rpm.

    Jason,
    don't you find that 1,000 is a tad high?

    I like it at 1200 to start and sit, 1300-1400 to roll around in a low gear, work at 1500-1800, heavy work at 2000. The sound of the tractor lets me know.

    Mine idles around 1,000 as well. Will have a look next time to see how close to 1,000 it is.

    The tach on the LK3054xs has idle speed hash mark at 800/850 rpm. I find that a little low(don't like the sound of the engine at that low a rpm)so I bumped mine up to 1000; sounds a lot better to me

    That's fine for driving but you need to keep even 'big trucks' at 1,000 or more if idled for long periods to prevent cylinder wash down
