    2017 JD 825I Gator

    Hi, was wondering if anyone else out there has a Gator 825I, with spongy brakes. My unit is BRAND new with 4 wheel disc. They barely stop the gator and if you really stand on pedal, still can not lock up tires in stone driveway. Dealer says this is normal, but my 590I had excellent brakes.Any info would be appreciated. Thanks AK

    I knew my mouth would get the better of me.
    Sorry, I have no clue with your unit.

    But, if it were me, I'd do the master cylinder first then go to the farthest wheel from the master cylinder and do it then go to the next farthest wheel and so on.
    You may have to do the wheels more than once.
