    1023E wheel problems? Anyone else?

    Just got my 1023E yesterday, and noticed inside the front rim was rubbed down to bare metal all the way around. It appears to be rubbing on the tie rod connecting to the hub. I am wondering if the wheel hubs are different than the 2305, and they are trying to use the same rims?

    Possibly there is supposed to be a type of wheel spacer to give the relief needed to space the rim out an 1/8" without going to far that it would affect the mounting of the mower deck? I am waiting to hear back from the dealer to see what the fix might be, until then I will speculate....
    Maybe a bulletin will follow.
    Anyone else have their new machine yet?

    Glad you could join the herd here at DT. I really think you are the first one to show up on the forum with a new 1023 or 1026 machine. The others are still waiting. Being the first you will be able to fill us all in on your experience. Until we get others on here with those machines you will need to rely on your dealer. Hopefully, others will be joining you here on the new model experience. Sorry I couldn't be of more help right now. Maybe you will need to check out JD Parts to see the assembly breakdowns. It is very helpful for stuff like this. Please keep us up to date.

    I'm wondering if the wheels need to be reversed? Is there more offset on one side?

    Welcome to DT

    As Randy wrote, you are the first one here that has one, sorry you are having issues already. I can only suggest you call the dealer immediately, and check the bolts to ensure they are tight.

    Yes, I would check and see if the front wheel can be reversed. If I recall the 2210 cannot, they have them in the wide setting out of the factory. Your 1023E may be different though. If all else fails, contact your dealer and have them get everything fixed up for ya. Oh, and congratulations on the 1023E, i have yet to see one in person but they look good online.

    Congratulations on your 1023E! Sorry to hear about your problem, keep us informed on the repair. I have a 1026R on order, looks like another two or three weeks before delivery. When you get a chance update us on your first impression, driving, hydraulics, mowing, etc.

    Thanks
    Joe

    Here is the new one with my old 445.

    The wheels are in the wide position. As I said, I contacted my dealer this A.M. and am waiting to hear back.
    I will be getting the loader and ballast box put on when they come in as well as the R4 tires.
    This is a very well handling machine!
    I haven't mowed with it yet, but look forward to it!
    I'll keep updating...

    You are not alone. I heard of the exact same problem that you described from a business associate of mine from New England. The dealer pointed out to him that the paint was worn off the front wheel in the same manner. This simply came from driving the tractor from the dealer's set-up shop to the front of the lot. His dealer suspected that there may be some difference in the wheel offsets.
    He also added that the dealer mentioned that you should not slam the hood! If you let your hood drop from a decent height from the latch (standard operating procedure for many users), the single hinge on the hood allows the hood to flex side-to-side. The hood can flex to the point where the hood's catch can jump past the latch, preventing the hood from being opened. Then you have major issues.
