X738 Deck Disengagement
Was mowing a large 5-6 acre field yesterday in moderate temperatures where the grass in places was 13-15” tall when maybe half done the deck just shut off by itself. I stopped and tried to re-engage the deck, but no go, checked the fuses, but they were all okay. I had noticed the tractor running hot so I checked the screens and they were all clear, but when I pulled the radiator screen, it was nearly covered with the fluffy stuff from the poplar trees. I thought it was going to be tough to clean, but gently tapped it against a tire and most of it came right off. Tapped it a couple more times and it was clear. I Restarted the engine and the temp gauge went down to mid scale. The deck then started back up and ran the rest of the time. First I’ve ever had that happen.
Anyone else have it?
Should the clutch adjustment be checked or is this one adjustable?
