    54D MMM Setup Fee for 1 Series

    Anyone know what is involved in the MMM setup that would justify my dealer wanting $ 650 setup fee where the deck is concerned? Could I do this myself as a cost savings? There is a separate $ 100 setup fee for the tractor itself.

    $650? Are those U.S. dollars?

    My setup fee for the 54" deck was $400 from my dealer back in Feb of this year. It was another $253 for the auto connect parts and stuff that go with installing the deck. That sounds about right if he lumped all that together instead of itemizing.

    5315M2001 AUTO-CONNECT 1 $253.00
    Freight 1 $83.04
    Setup 1 $400.00

    Is this being added to an existing tractor?

    Are you getting the "Hydraulic Lift" or the "Independent Lift" options? If so, that may explain the high cost.

    My setup fee would have been about $250. I decided to install it myself. In my opinion, you are much better off setting it up yourself. Nearly all of the problems that people have with these decks can be traced back to poor dealer setup. It is not hard to do, but must be done right - it is not something that should be rushed.

    Follow the directions that come with the deck and read through this thread before starting the work and you should have no problem getting it installed.

    This is how my quote looks also, except instead of $ 400, they are quoting $ 650. I think this difference MIGHT be that the original quote had Hydraulic lift, which may be the extra $ 250.00 in labor and when they scaled the quote back to $ mechanical lift, they forgot to adjust the labor.

    This is for a brand new tractor.

    I just am trying to figure out why it takes so long to setup the deck - that money is better in my pocket than the dealers. If I can do the work myself, I will do it.

    If you were nearby, I’d say bring it by still strapped to a pallet and a cold half-rack of beer and we’d have you all set in no time.

    Save the dollars and do it yourself. There’s a sticky thread here on how to do it. If you’re somewhat technically and mechanically inclined, you can knock this out better than most high school kids assembling these things at some dealers.

    What DS said, besides that, even if they set it you are still going to have to do it yourself to make it right.

    This was exactly my thought - I am definitely capable, but I wanted to make sure there wasn't some vodoo, magic and special tools involved.

    Thanks all!
