    X750 problem

    I just joined the forum and looking for help. I just took delivery of a new 16' X750. Love it but one problem. I had to do some grading and bought a simple blade and I have 4 suitcase weights on the front but when the blade is raised and not touching the ground the tractor has a hard time turning. It wants to push through a turn and not turn so well. Is it a 2wd problem? Not enough weight? I spent that much money on it to do stuff like this and not just mow. Very worried. Thanks for any help.

    I'm going to assume the blade is on the back and the weight is on the front. If so the the front will slide because you don't have enough weight on the front to counter the blade on the back and or the front turf tires are sliding cause the ground maybe slick.

    My X585 which is about the same size machine as yours but 4WD will do that same thing. I notice it the most with the box blade on if the ground is too wet and it picks up too much weight. When I lift the box grader the front wheels get really light. In my case it helps if I have the FEL on as that is more weight on the front and 4WD also helps.

    Can you add more weight to the front? Not sure how much room there is for more than 4 suitcase weights. Not sure that there is more bracket space. Another option is to see if Heavy Hitch makes a front weight bar for your machine to hang a few more suitcase weights off of. I know he makes one for some of the machines but not sure of the X7xx.

    Thanks for the reply. Yes it is on the back but dry dirt. I saw online that JD offers another brakes for the front for 9 weights. With the weight it will be putting another 500 bucks into it. Think it will resolve the problem?

    John deere makes 70lb suitcase weights 4 of them might be cheaper then a weight bracket and 5 move 42lb.

    Size matters

    You never said how big the blade is. A X750 is best sized to a 5 foot, standard duty blade, and if you put anything bigger on it, you will need a proportionately greater amount of front weight.

    Glad to see someone else with a x750 and a 3 point. I assume you have the smaller 42lb weights. I would get 4, 70lb weights for the front and that would double the about of weight on the front. When I use my 647 tiller I put 4, 70lb weights and I can still pop a wheelie if I am facing up hill...

    Out on a limb here, but does the tractor turn just fine without the blade on the back?

    When I read your post the first thought I had was that maybe your Differential Lock button (pedal shaped like a Button on the left footrest of your tractor) is either stuck or the spring came off which allows it to be engaged, which will make turning very tough as it locks the rear wheels together........

    Just a thought.........

    I did use the dif lock. Didn't help. I actually took it back and traded it in on a 1025r, works like a dream. Other comments asked why didn't I do that and after considering what I would have spent on the bracket and more weights I would have spent more than a 1025r on this x750. Thanks John Deere for the "John Deere Promise"!
