    I have 3 other tractors that are 35 - 40 years old with the original exhaust, including 2 JDs. This was how my 1025 rewarded me today:

    Never hit anything, obviously.

    Going to see if my dad can weld it....pos.

    Also...if anyone happened to know the part # I'd appreciate having it, I will probably also buy a spare for when I inevitably need to replace it again.

    Thank you sir...

    I hope I'm not coming off too harsh here, but this is ridiculous, you buy a JD for the reputation of quality like I've experienced with other green machines. Has anyone else had this happen?

    Is it still under warranty? If so take it back.

    I've not seen that on any other that wasn't modified...

    Wonder what the 1 series production is up to now? 50,000... more? less? In general the green line seems as good if not better than any other in their lower levels... Their higher level machines seem to beat industry averages consistently... though I am really disliking their "we have to fix it, you can't touch" lockdown on the big iron...

    Looks like a fracture from being made brittle by the welding and forced cooling it too quickly afterward.

    Agree with poster saying if under warranty, take it back.

    no problem, I would be upset if my new 1025R broke like that as well. The main reason I purchased another JD myself was the quality and use I got from my last one. I am glad to pay the higher price for "quality". I always tell my wife you get what you pay for. JD has built a good reputation, hopefully they will continue to work hard to keep it!

    Never seen that happen or heard of it till you said something. If you look at the break can you tell if it was partially broke before it broke all the way?

    Clean break like that looks like a fracture as mentioned earlier. Either an internal flaw with the metal or as mentioned the vendor made the metal brittle during the welding process.

    Posted for general info only. Not suggesting you alter your tractor based upon my feeble minded posts. Do so at your own risk. Maintenance and mods should be performed by a JD Dealer, or refer to your owners and maintenance manuals for proper procedures.

    As Levi said , haven't seen that before . I don't think I would get overly cautious to the point I would buy a spare , unless the members here post that it a widespread defect . This forum is very good at letting others know about potential issues with their machines , as you are letting us know about the issue you are having with yours . I've had a few problems with mine and I get your frustration , but for me , overall , this is a great little machine . Hopefully for you this is a one time fix and you will enjoy your machine for years to come . Good Luck !!!!
