Well, it needed the infamous right side Head gasket replaced and I changed all the filters and a new battery and she runs 100% top shelf.... I think some people give up to early when problems arrive and have to fight the warranty red tape claim situations.
....The whole idea of when you purchase something new and need to rely on the manufactures warranty service when it breaks for fast honest repairs seems to be lacking in just about every company these days.... Companies now a days, try to find a loop hole out instead of fixing the problem for the customer.
It's really sad because alot of people are not mechanically inclined and just want a good reliable machine with basic maintainence upkeep to keep them running for a long time with out all the B*S* when things need repaired.:banghead3
It certainly does seem like the older units were made better and more tougher then the tractors of today....and when you look at the asembled in location, you can almost guarantee that it was Made In America, then and not Oversea's like most are now!!
I have a secret weapon when I have problems with a company. I unleash my wife on them. I haven'twon one single agruement with her in over 40 years. So I figure I might as well use that to my advantage. So far no manager has won an agruement with her either.
