In the video, you see (hear) me raise the deck (electric lift), set the height and then release the switch (you can hear the pitch of the engine change when raising/lowering the mmm). At that point, the cam turns to a much lower setting all by itself, repeatedly. In the last 20 seconds of the video, I tried to demonstrate how it drops even lower while mowing, but I couldn't get it to do that this time. My wife was the first to experience this problem when she mowed the yard for the first time on the new tractor. She was NOT impressed. I'm not allowed to mow the yard because I leave "too many swirly marks", so I'm confined to mowing the woods and the pasture fields.
My dealer (Findlay Implement - they're really great guys) looked at it and ordered a new cam. When I took it back for the repair, they said that upon disassembly, they found that another part (not sure what part yet, but I will find out) was worn and ordered that part as well. I'm supposed to pick it up today (Sat., Nov. 2nd). I can't imagine that a part is worn out after only 65 hours of use, but maybe it was just defective to begin with.
When I first test drove the tractor, it didn't even have a mower on it, but it had a height knob that was very hard to turn. I actually had to use two hands to turn it. I pointed that out when I returned with it to have the mower installed and purchase it. They made some adjustments and from that point on, it has turned as easily as all the other 1025's I had tested it against.
Is anyone else having this this type of issue with the electric lift?
I'll test it out and repost when the results are in.
Because so many folks have a hard time with their auto-connect mmm's, I wanted to go on record as saying that my auto-connect 60D mmm works as intended whether I connect/disconnect in gravel, grass or concrete. Sometimes I have to engage it a little aggressively, but for all intents and purposes, The techs at Findlay Implement nailed the setup.
