    5083en horrible failure in only a few years.

    So to make a long story short we have a 5083en orchard tractor which is maybe 4-5 years old. Works great overall but had a few issues we decided to get checked out. For a year or more there has been a bit of oil leaking around the steering column which was so minor we only recently had it checked out. This turns out to be a 2000 dollar fix! Next issue was water was contaminating the transmission fluid over time and it had to be changed, condensation or a bad seal were assumed until the other day when the techs found out there is a crack on the top of the transmission casing right by the lift arms. So near the fill port area, not 100% sure as I have yet to see it. This is an 8000 dollar fix just for that one issue on it's own! These were things we had them check out when the tractor was sent off to replace a sensor under the cab that failed which made the machine nearly useless. Plus the A/C failed again and we had a main power wire break and a heater hose in it's short time here. So after that long story I must ask, had anyone heard of this? Did we get some sort of super dud tractor or was this just a dud model that we got by bad luck? We do not run this tractor nearly hard enough to condone these failures, not even close and in fact we are quite careful with our machines. We have never had this kind of bad quality with a Deere before ever in the past and are really in a worried spot. We may not even buy this brand anymore after using them for many years. I really am looking for advice and information as to what may have cause these constant failures on this tractor but very few on our tractors used for pulling and loading which is much harder than spraying and mowing.... Thanks for any info you may have!

    I could not find where these tractors are manufactured. As best I can determine, the 3E and 5E series are manufactured in India, but that may not be so. Personally, I would not buy a 3E or 5E series tractor. I don't know if the EN falls in this category.

    The 5E series is built in India. Our 5065E has been nearly 100%, save a few very minor things. Nothing like this, and I don't know what the differences are
    between the E and the EN. My assumption is that this is unique.
    How many hours?

    would need his serial number to decode ..... the example is just that....not a designation that all EN tractors were also LV tractors

    a good indicator of offshore build would be black painted chassis vs green painted chassis

    Not always, I guess. Our 5065E indicates India build on the placard, but the frame is JD green.

    This is the main issue (The crack) on the tractor. They said it was a stress crack from overloading the 3 point hitch but it sure seems odd considering how heavily supported the area around it is that it would crack there. I do apologize for the angle, left is top.

    Tractordata also states 5083EN was built in Augusta,Ga. There's no mention of India that I saw in PC9945 for 5083EN but I did see Yanmar listed.

    On subject of crack I agree the cracked area is heavily supported. It sounds as if JD is denying any responsibility.
