Stopped by the dealer today to pick up, blower chain oil, blowers gear box oil, a second drift blade and extra shear bolts. I mentioned to the "adjuster", that after my tractor was dropped off from another warrenty repair (2 days ago), that I reinstalled the backhoe. I told her that after swiveling the seat around, that I found a hex nipple with springs on each end and clips that have a tiny ball bearing with press fit pins, hanging unattached on one end. The parts guy went in the back and came out with the exact part that is broken from a previous repair. I told them, just sell me or order the part, it's not worth the transport fee to have you guys fix it. They shook thier heads and said its a $700.00 part. My jaw dropped! Entire seat assembly has to be changed because Deere parted out the build, they f&@ing cheaped out to China! It's covered under warrenty but now it's another pick up, transport bill and tractor gone for at least over a week or two. Staff was great and totally cool explaining things. They said this is a common problem and guys just out of warrenty have gotten whacked with, transport fee, $700.00 seat carriage fee and labor. Shaking my head! Fourth transport fee for minor stuff covered under warranty.
