    x700 series remote spout control kit help

    Hello, I just installed the remote spout / chute control kit on my X739 and am not thrilled with the rigidity of the main bracket (M146186) that holds the manual control. Its wobbly and could use some gussets or bracing. Does anyone else have this problem? Looking for ideas or pictures of mods to help with this problem. Thanks!

    PS, I know there are electric actuators out there but I used the cable style for years on my GT235 and it worked great.

    Contact your dealer. There is a fix out to make it more rigid. Have them reference dtac solution 112625.

    If you have the dealer apply the fix can you please post some before and after photos so we can see what the fix entails?

    Thanks!

    Well... if it's any consolation the bracket for the remote spout control on my 2720 is wobbly also. JD chose to bolt the support bracket to a tiny piece of sheet metal down by the brake pedal. I'm just waiting for it to break.

    My best option seems to be to scrap the cable actuated spout control and go with a linear actuator. :-)

    Wow, how late is your dealer open? lol
    Mine rolls up the carpet up at 5:30. lol

    Best to call and ask questions well before closing time. You can get better/more accurate answers.
    I personally won't go into a store just before closing time. Especially if I'm just browsing. I need at least 15-30 minutes to shop.

    The fix is in the case I referenced. Basically a doubler plate to stiffen it up. A hole was left out during a production change which enabled the bracket to flex. I have no personal experience as I only saw the fix on Deere's "What's new" page.
