Glad to hear your on to something. Hope it works out. We'll be waiting patiently for your results.
Dito! if you can prove it was welded in the wrong place from the factory the dealer and deere should pony up a new deck or at least rebate you the dollars spent needlessly over the years.I think with all of the info and pictures you have now... I would make one last trip to the dealer and talk to the owner. You have incontrivertible proof the deck was made wrong, and you made them aware of it during the warranty period.
If they won't advocate to Deere for you, I would go over their heads and talk to a regional manager.
it's very obviously a product problem, you've got all of your maintenance history, you should give it one last shot.
As a former business owner, if I saw all of your evidence and hard work, I'd be bending over backwards to make it right. I hope Deere does the same.
Shhhhhh don't say such sacrilegious things you want the JD gods coming down for you Kevin ?:Stop:John Deere warranty flat out stinks...
4 Years or 500 Hours seems pretty good to me. :hide:John Deere warranty flat out stinks...
So what GT company has a better network of dealers and service dollar for dollar than JD? And don't quote me anything from the specialty brands which sell 100 machines a year... and are so far out of price range for us green peons...Pretty down on JD huh?
