New x758 3PH Help!
Trying not to get too ****** off and make irrational decisions so any input would be appreciated. My son has been in the ICU in Cincinnati for over a month now and I was recently home for work and took delivery of my new x758 (traded in an x738). Decided to try and mow real quick before heading back up. About 5 minutes into mowing I ran over something and it sounded like a gun went off. I stopped the mower and realized the dealership didn't tighten the new front roller on the 54" HC deck and it came undone and I ran over/mowed it. I removed what was left of the roller and tried to finish mowing so I could make the 10 hour drive back to Cinci. The deck then decided it didn't want to move at all and it is now stuck in the high position. I am 100% certain this comes from the dealership doing a poor job installing the kit needed to operate a 3PH on the x758. I noticed while checking out the x758 at the dealership when it arrived the deck had been acting weird by being jerky and sometimes not lowering after the 3PH had lowered. I called my salesperson (who is a great dude) and told him to come pick up the x758 and fix it ASAP and give me back the x738 so I can continue taking care of my property. A couple questions I could really use some guidance on:
1) For anyone who has an x7 series and added a 3PH - did your mower deck operate any differently after adding the 3PH? As in it only worked some of the time, became jerky, etc? My x738 has a smooth up and down motion. When the x758 deck reaches the top, it moves sideways which I don't believe should be happening. Sometimes its jerky, then sometimes it does not respond at all.
2) Can anyone explain how 1 cylinder can operate two different implements (3PH and deck)?
3) Deere has a 30-day satisfaction guarantee. Due to my son's medical issues, I paid for the machine at the end of July but just took delivery August 18th. Does anyone know for certain if the 30 day window starts when the machine is paid for or when you take delivery? I do not want to be stuck with a malfunctioning tractor and be at the mercy of the dealership for constant repairs (been down that road). Long story short I have more important things going on (son's health) and I might just return the thing and not deal with it. I want to give them a chance to make it right but not at the expense of me missing the return deadline.
Appreciate any thoughts.
