6000 goes down

I hate to be saying this but my 2014 is seized up tighter than a tick in a teddy bear. All I can tell so far is the oil tank is barely down after 200+ miles and the motor is done. Drinking beers waiting for the truck and trailer to get here.

I was never a big fan of the "Look how little oil my 6000 uses" claims

Wow this sucks, maybe you are lucky and its something simple that was overlooked and the motor isnt fried I would figure there should be sensors if the engine was not getting oil. What happened prior to the "siezure" any abnormal sounds? did it die on you in the middle of the lake?

If oil pump quits it should shut off the motor. Many things could have happened. This motor is sound, bullet proof and actually more reliable than the 800. I would own nothing less.

Some how it stopped using oil or has been using way less than it should. After 225 miles it has used maybe 8 or 10 oz of oil. Just guessing by what is left in the oil tank and guessing at the miles because digital gauge comes on with the motor. I would say it's a tuff motor to go that far with little or no oil. Now I got to decide if I should trade it for a 2017 I don't want, or look at fixing this one. I wish Cat would release a new big bore 2S already.

Was the recall done? They had a recall on the injectors. The vendor that assembled the injectors put too much loctite on some and pluged the hole. The recall was to check them to make sure they were not blocked.

I went 650 miles last year and I used one bag. Started full at zero miles. 50-70 cruising. 15 mpg average as well.

I was cursing 85+ and gas mileage was 10. The 800 gets better gas mileage but the 600 gets better oil mileage so i guess it is a give or take. I have been through 2 bags in the last 500 miles. Sled has just over 1000 miles on it.
