Is it normal that the gearbox gets overheated when it is working?

The overheating of the gearbox when working is normal. An empirical method to understand whether the temperature is excessive is observing the paint of the gearbox. If this tends to become dark that means the temperature is too high. In such a case we recommend you to verify that the oil level is proper.
Should you reintegrate oil, SICMA recommends following the instructions on our handbook. With machines equipped of gear-change, a further check to be made is for the correct coupling of gears (for example it needs to be verified that it’s not being used a configuration set for 540 rpm on a tractor at 1000 rpm). For further details please refer to your closest authorized workshop.
