    Default Sparks from exhaust


    Ten mins after starting tonight, in complete darkness, I saw several small sparks come from my JD 790 exhaust.

    Is this normal? My JD 790 only has 80 some hours on it.

    Thanks a million,

    Buck

    I get that sometimes too. I just think it's carbon. I don't think you have glowing metal sparks, just glowing carbon.
