Received my new 1025r FILB a couple of weeks ago and it started blowing the fuse for the forward and rear work lights. I unplugged the lights at the fixture and it still blew the fuse. Unplugged at the bottom of the ROPS and it still blew the fuse. At that point, decided not to rip up the floor boards and dash to chase the fault. Called dealer and they picked it up. I also told dealer that the cruise lift arm handle needs to be tightened up. It came back with the short fixed but not the cruise handl repar. In addition, the seat had a razor cut (took pics) and the ignition switch was loose. I sent an email to the head of tech support services and they immediately came back and got the tractor.
This is the part that pissed me off. The driver says that the seat was cut when he picked it up. I told him absolutely not ! I said, show me on the invoice where you noted that, because if you didn't, than it wasn't cut. He than said the cruise handle slop was normal. I said absolutely not and that I'm driving there after you to your shop and lifting one on your showroom FILB to compare. Next he said I fooled with the ignition switch when looking for the short. In the end, I told him take the tractor and I will see you in the show room in ant 15 minutes. Was sorry I gave him a good tip when he dropped it off the first round.
He didn't like being stood up to at all. The sales manager is great but he's off for the week. Hoping to get the tractor back today. Going to have a long talk with the dealer about his lazy useless tech driver. I could tell right away that he is a cover your ass do nothing easy way out tech.
