    x580 power loose power steering ?

    On my Brand New X580 the power steering works fine, but there is about 1/8 turn of steering play.
    That is, when driving straight, I can wiggle the steering wheel without causing a turn.

    Is this normal for the JD power steering?

    Can the play be reduced? It feels like an old pickup truck with worn out ball joints.

    Thanks,
    GNG

    I don't have one in the yard to compare it to. But if it's not wandering right and left, I wouldn't worry. The steering is made to be neutral as far as sensitivity.

    I also have a new X580 and I haven't noticed anything unusual about the steering . It seems to be about the same as the X530 that I just sold . Hope this helps .
