    Question How Much Have You Spent On Out Of Warranty Repairs?

    A thread was started earlier today about the need for an extended warranty for a 1XXX series purchase. Considering the extended warranty costs $750.00 and lasts for a total of 4 years (or 800 hours), how much have you all spent on repairs out of the warranty?

    No problem. This poll could be helpful to all SCUT owners so why not include them...

    I haven't spent anything yet because I'm still under warranty.

    For those responding that ARE out of warranty, IMO, it would be helpful to know how many hours are on your machine. Guys that are rebuilding machines from the 1940s/1950s are going to be a lot different than someone with a 2007 machine with 400 hours on it.

    Interesting poll.

    1026R, 2 years 10 months old, just shy of 120 hours.

    I spent $20 in warranty, just for gas money to a good friend to trailer my tractor in for the warranty repair of FBS/DBS scv.

    Nothing else in or out of warranty.

    I'm satisfied.

    I did not vote in the poll since my 1026r is still covered under the basic warranty. But, for those of you who did vote and whose tractors are past the basic warranty, could you post up which model you have, what work was done, how old it was and how many hours it had when the repairs were made?
    Let's see if we can collect some really good useful information as to the life of these machines!

    My 1026R was dropped off May 9th of 2012. Picture included. It has had more than the average issues.

    3 point lift cylinder replaced due to rust on bypass valve scoring cylinder
    Dash/instrument panel replaced to fix PTO
    Headlight switch replaced when added rear work light
    Loader stand replaced for update. Very lucky as mine wasn't broken before replacement.
    Replaced SCV valve to repair FBS and DBS
    Coolant leak was a lower rad hose not tightened


    The PTO was a real pain because it wouldn't do it all the time. I think it went to the shop a couple times for that. Sometimes I hauled it and other times they did. All this was under warranty.

    The only item I've fixed on my own $$ was the broken light I broke. I'm in the 120 hour range and very happy with my 1026R. There were some growing pains, but JD fixed them all and it has been a wonderful machine. It's not getting the use it did when I first got it, but some things are done and others require time I don't have. Still worth every penny.

    Oh and I did not buy the extra warranty. I could see why some might want to, but I bought a premium brand and don't feel like I should have to. If it's only $750 on a machine that cost $17-22k I assume JD doesn't think it'll break much either. If it was a cheapee tractor I could see the extra warranty being worth it, but then again I bet the warranty would cost more as the numbers would probably show a higher failure rate.

    I'm still under warranty but don't plan on buying the extended warranty. To me, buying it says you have no faith in the product and you expect it to be a pile o' crap. As was stated, I feel I've purchased a premium brand and shouldn't need it. Just my 2 cents anyway.

    Cool

    Guys,

    I've got 405 hours on my 2.5 year old 1026R. I've used the machine for mowing, loader work and limited rear blade snow plowing. So far, I've not spent a dollar on out of warranty repairs that would have been covered had I purchased an extended warranty. Don't forget, if the extended warranty costs $750, you need to exceed that $750 in warranty repairs in years 3 and 4 to even be ahead of the game. My feeling is that is unlikely to happen. I never buy extended warranties on anything from cars to yachts to JD tractors.
