6.4 Exhaust hazards??

I am wondering if the exhaust temp at the tail pipe is ever hot enough to catch a dry corn field on fire. This will be on a F550 with a service body that does in field service in dry fields. It will have extended idle time since the components are PTO drive.

I havent ever checked it, but im sure with an infrared thermometer you could check it and see.. I doubt it would as it would near about have to be glowing hot in order to cause ignition

I believe there is a flash that will not allow it to regen during idle. Might want to check with the dealer.

Where I work on pipeline right of way, there has been a couple of Chevy's and Ford's that have caught straw bales on fire by parking too close to them and idling for a long time. But we idle for hours on end.
