1025R with a 47" Blower
I read all the various threads about noise and shaking, but Ive not seen a lot of feedback of what was found to fix the issue. Ive changed the two bearings ( one was bad) and realigned the drive shaft and inspected all the joints for slop etc. and found nothing. It seems to go away if I pull it out of float and elevate the blower about a 1/2 inch (?) and the rattling goes away. I've tried RPM up and down but all that does is change the frequency of the rattle. I disconnected the mid mount shaft and ran it and that seem to make the noise go away or not as there's no load on the system.
What is going on that just moving the blower up slightly would affect the issue? Is there a chance the drive shaft is too long and riding into the mid mount pto output spline? Even though the drive shaft floats back and forth.
Dealer says bring it in and wait about 2 weeks for the current backlog before it can be looked at. This is not really an option I'd like to do as I like to fix what I use
