john deere x300 problems

0 yorum

Had an LT150 for 13 years with no issues, got a used LT160 with around 200 operating hrs and it started having that problem after the first month. The first hydrostatic transmission failed in 10 hours. I have a LA 175 with 80 hrs. First the anti-backfire mechanism broke on the carb. Experiencing exactly the same trannie problems as most above have described. Now it seems I won’t be steering anything as the L17.542 mower isn’t moving anymore. I cut about an acre two days ago (ran out of daylight), and finished the rest yesterday. Faulty spark plug or wire. After the luck I have been having with this tractor and the lack of service I have been reading about at this site I have given up on John Deere and have now been looking at Kubota. My oh my how I wish I had stumbled upon this website prior to my L130 purchase. Don’t wait … less than thirty left. TuffTorq are the ones with quality issues the only parts that are made by John Deere are the accessories (decks, plows etc), frame and body for the most part. If so I could get a plow kit then I think.? Looking at the order he said to look on the next page of the instruction and i’d see that my upgrade required washers (as spacers which were included) instead. too have lost power and cannot climb a small hill without whining and losing power. I bought it new in 2005 and thought I was getting a good quality mower. I can’t say enough about Roger’s kit, easy to install, all parts in kit, just follow instructions. Has Deere been selling consumers defective goods for years? Thank you. Seriously, when the tranny starts to go on a John Deere, the first thing almost everyone does is change the belt because the symptoms seem very much like a slipping belt. I live in the south and its hot. (Maybe $100-200 more for the LT’s and X300’s) The Super 500 will come in under $2900, but WOW … what a ride! I just bought this mower on Craigslist, cost me $900 for a LA120. I have a D170, same issue with the K46 transmission. This thread has been incredibly informative. They do not compete at all with any of the other machines. Sometimes has enough to go slowly backward, other times won’t move at all. I am frustrated having to replace parts DIY; rates here are $80/hr. Thus here I am trying to determine the issue with the hydro. It appears that all the 100 series used the same front axle and same bushings and I have been changing them 2 or 3 times a year. What you will see is much more torque and pulling power. Fellows, in my opinion John Deere has some great products, but they have sold as much or a higher percent “junk” than any other manufacturer! What to do, what to do? Now at 330 hours, the transmission is starting to lose power on the hills. I had bought the JD based largely on their reputation, a mistake I won’t make again. I guess I’ll sell the engine and junk the rest and buy the cheapest mower I can find . 3rd gearbox in it now/ no issues except more shear pins.. lol) and several plastic chutes since new due to shattering when cold. Write me if you have any questions or concerns. Class action would be great but you would probably get back $.05. Please add my name to the list for the Class action suite. K66 transmission way too much to spend on a tractor that is worse significantly less than that. I am have problem pulling 25%hill only 1/3 of lawn. Whats up with John Deere? went in reverse it just sat there no go . I have a 2004 Deere L118 and it stopped climbing the hills in my yard. Generally I think the tractor is a piece of crapola, except maybe the Kohler engine itself. I should have bought a craftsman which would have probably lasted about 10 to 15 years. And the fact when i was getting transmission fluid from the dealer and i couldn’t even get an answer on how much fluid the tranny holds, just a “Whatever you pour out, put in”. Totally depressed now that I may have to spend $1700 to fix it. Got it home and started cutting. To get the same level of performance, you would have to spend well over $5000. So I have come to the place where I am ready for a better and more reliable and lasting transmission. Power in numbers. -A loud whining noise can be heard from the back of the tractor when in use, Transmissions but will be looking into a upgrade or a way to ad service ports to it! I would’ve gladly paid the couple of hundred extra when I bought the machine. I will NEVER buy another JD. The Deere-related recalls were based on information Deere reported to the CPSC on its own and came only days after the company’s oldest factory celebrated its 100th anniversary. For those of you still using the lower end JD lawn tractors, even if you’ve done the transmission replacement, I’d suggest you replace that little metal arm once in a while before it fails. That said, by what I understand they only used 10w30 conventional oil from the factory in these units. This is by far the best lawn tractor JD ever built. Sorry, guess I wasn’t explicit enough. Anyhow, thanks for all the interesting information. The 145 is a better machine. Brake and blade-brake failures Two of the John Deere recalls resulted after sharp-eyed staffers spotted fallen bolts in both the assembly area and on a warehouse floor, where the tractors awaited shipment. Everything was just as all who has installed the upgrade had stated. Well I found out today that the front axle was installed backwards where ever it was assembled once corrected alignment is spot on I am happy. I have had it for around 3-4 years with no issues, it is a K60 or K61 not sure which. You think John Deere would have a recall or do something to make this right with customers since there are so many complaints. Hi. Looking for an update. Too much for a heavy-duty paper weight…….. Everyone is jumping on John Deere and their poor quality. I told the guy right Now I’m torn. The performance did NOT improve, although I did not take the transmission apart and look at the filter. Their executive Ellen gave our records that they received from the Michigan A.G. to their legal department to no avail. This mower has had many other problems prior to the failure of the K46. I opted in on a Class Action suit regarding the engine and got it rebuilt after years of fighting to which Deere would only tell me to take it to the dealer and they can correct the problem. If you are checking out tractors, look for 1″ axles, then look for the clear plastic external oil reservoir. Even the mower deck can be engaged. > The trade-in, or sale value for your used, crippled tractor will be very low. Started to research to find the problem and noticed all of the tranny problems. The instructions that Roger sent suggested the same oil you mentioned (I think it was 5w30, I’ll check) and when I went to put in the new oil, I found it was full of factory oil. Thanks again! You can replace it with another transmission of the same and yes, it will move the truck for a while but not for long. Sorry to hear all the bad issue’s everyone seams to be having with their JD, I purchased (new) a L110 in 2001 , it now has over 1200 hrs, and is just now starting to have transmission issue’s. A neighbor had purchased it from Lowe’s and a couple weeks later he was notified his reserve unit was being deployed. Tractor well maintained and cleaned after 2 hours of cutting every weekend in the summer. Ihave a 2005 ztrak 757 doing this exact thing!! I thought the $360 spent was going to solve all my mower issues. Tuff Torq, like most businesses, build their products to SUIT THEIR CUSTOMERS. I bought a D170 Mower 1-1/2 years ago, have NEVER used it to pull anything but a very small trailer with grass clippings. Hot oil gets thinner and with excessive clearance around the pump gears , and the drive motor pistons it just cavitates causing more heat. 2) I have not installed the freewheeling rod yet (just have not made the time). They should never have put that junk out it has hurt their reputation. with about 600 hours . Pure Junk John Deer. Never been more satisfied with a purchase. short life, poor build quality and expensive to fix. He also said that john deere wanted to keep up with the other companies like MTD. I did replace my deck spindles 2years ago with the newer ones equiped with grease zerks. The Kubota dealer around has gotten great reviews from people I know for standing behind their product and service. I ended up finding a great mechanical condition 1992 265 with the 17hp Kawasaki and a 48” deck had some scratches but got it for $750 awesome rider built like a tank mows great. And at that point we could not locate the spacer so we stopped everything there. Terry … You said it better than I did! Regarding your JD tractor problems: Good Luck finding anything better in the consumer price range. No … just green and yellow paint. I see that there is no place to add fluid on my tractor but there is a “knockout” plug in the very top of the transmission. I bought it used in 1999 (I think it was manufactured in 92 or 93) and it just started slipping this spring. They are not easily identified, as they look similar to the other bolts. Was told by local JD dealer that the drive belt was bad on the tractor. I have a John Deere D170 54 inch tractor. I also have a John Deere LT150 andLT155! With all the poor starving lawyers out there, someone is missing the chance of a lifetime for a class-action lawsuit against John Deere. Had to replace the transmission. I write several articles for the paper and you can bet this is one I will have published. add me to the lawsuit, or send me the link. he didnt want to spend that kind of money on a tractor and i kind of talked him into it sayin,” its a john deere- they wouldnt sell it if it wasnt a good tractor.” and eating my words every day. I like many of you think John Deere should have some kind of lawsuit brought against them. Roger, do you sell the mounting hardware for the hood? KC: I am not a part of any suit against JD. A customer would ship his tractor to our facility and we would go completely through it and replace or upgrade anything that was worn out or needed upgrading. Once completed, I took it out for a spin to ensure all was working well. I decided to take to john deere dealer, $1000 to fix. Wow Jim…..thanks for your immediate response. I bought 2003 L130 for $700. Their should have been a fix or upgrade. I’m having the John Deere dealership who sold me the X300 remove the transaxle and change the oil and internal filter. They “claimed” it just needed stronger spring which I knew it wasn’t.. The first thing I would look at is the “free wheeling rod.” (A small push/pull rod extending from the back hitch plate of the tractor) If this rod was inadvertently pulled out, the tractor will not move. Myne is a LA130 Automatic. Had my X300 for 5 years and have not had problem with it beyond normal wear and tear. O.K. Thanks. I read all the above comments and they seem to describe my problem. Hopefully by us banding together we can make a difference! I have the same problem as everyone else that I mow for a while and then there is no power The result was loss of power and transmission overheating. If you want to do an upgrade – Don’t wait. Your tractor does not have a method for checking or changing the fluid level of the hydrostatic transmission. I was at home depot and a guy was looking at a new john deere and I had to stop and tell him about my problems with mine and told him these tractors are nowhere near as good as their farm tractors so don’t be fooled. I see on the diagrams that what I was calling a “knockout plug” in the above comment is actually called a “magnet(2)” and “plug”.. Couldn’t this plug be removed and fluid added ? What I got in return was stunning! I tipped the mower over, on it’s rear tires & fenders, to allow access, for a detail cleaning of the under-carriage ! Thanks for posting opportunity to participate. I’m sending you his email address. Pushed it back to the barn. It’s a real fun unit! If this And if so, how much it will cost? Just curious what caused it to fog up? How easy is it to change the oil on the new K66? There are many of us out here who need something that will. I don’t have that kind of money I live month to month. What difference did it make? At the time i bought my john Deere, had a 13 year old Wards Tractor that I thought would not last much longer; its still running. Thx to those that birthed the idea. I maintain this vehicle according to its recommended schedule (although they seem to recommend a LOT of maintenance). Thanks for everything! Not to say the dealership would lie or try to con me, but they were not only NOT helpful, they really didn’t seem to care since I apparently had no where else to go as far as they knew.
