Anyone using a 17P cart should inspect the area in which the axle passes through the drawbar.
This past week I was hauling a load of topsoil (level to the brim) across my yard which I've done dozens of times while topdressing most of the yard. I felt the load get stuck and turned around to find the draw bar at a 45deg angle compared to where it should be, tires were still on level wet ground, not buried. Additionally the latch on the cart let go and dumped the cart direct against my neighbors fence making it a PITA to unload.
I figured it was already broken i might as well try brute force to get it unstuck...so between using the pulling power and weight of the X758 I couldn't get it out but just rather dug the wheel in. I tried to use the plow to lift/push it out and it didn't work either. I figured what the hell, I'm gonna spend $500 on a new cart might as well get this pig out. Used the tractor with a little bit of speed to bump it out....no luck.
I manually unloaded the whole thing and tossed it into my wheelbarrow to finish spreading and getting the cart unstuck. needless to say the tab behind the latch to help guide it flattened out, the drawbar tore open, and coincidentally I noticed the two cap bolts that are on the front end of the tub started to pull through.
I called Brinly for parts and turns out I can get it replaced under warranty. They said due to the issues and size of the parts I'm better off going to a local dealer to swap it out for me. They will then get a credit from Brinly. I called my local dealer that I purchased from and got the run around for 3 days. Needless to say he was least than impressed that Brinly had signed him up for a such a deal. He then proceeded to tell me he does't keep carts in stock and won't get them in for a few weeks. I called another dealer that was a few towns over that originally quoted me for my X758 but couldn't come within $2k of the pricing I got from the dealer I ended up buying from. I explained to them what was going on, 6 hours later I got a call back telling me they have no problem taking care of me and working with Brinly for the credit on their end. I asked them if I could grab the Steel 18 instead and pay the difference. Turns out they're fine with that and they had one built out back already... Picked it up yesterday morning.
