Arrow 05 rhino 660 has blue smoke sometimes?

Hi everyone I have a rhino 660 it has recently started to have blue smoke sometimes but it is only after it has been in a bind or it has been run at high speed and when it comes out it is all at one time and it is a total smoke cloud, something David Copperfield himself would be proud to disapear from!!! Any ideas? It doesn,t seem to have lost any power though but the oil was a litle low when i checked it?

The Blue Smoke is oil burning. I would suspect you have some sort of a ring problem.

This is not new to the 660, there is a good chance your valve guides are wearing, not the end of the engine by any means, mine is still running strong with 600 plus hours, and 5700km. the only thing is you will see some oil burn sometime at startup, you will have to be checking your oil before you start it up every time, after an all day run you could use up to a cup of oil.
Mine has been like this for years
