I was going through the mail when I got home yesterday before hitching up the camper and heading out of town. I happened to see a letter from John Deere.
I thought this was odd and when I opened it there was two stickers. One in English and the other in Spanish along with a copy of a page which indicated what they wanted me to put the stickers. There was a letter stating something to the effect that for safety they have made a change to the Operator's Manual. That this change is for some Z9xx Traks I think from model year 2014-2107. As I mentioned I was on the way out the door for the weekend so I only glanced at it. From what I remember the change was something like ensuring the parking brake was set before starting the machine. Hmm, so there isn't a safety that prevents starting without setting the parking brake? I thought there was or maybe it isn't sensitive enough. I guess I am not sure how the parking brake is set on the B/E/M. I know it is a hand brake more like a car has where the R is a foot brake. The R is either on or off. Not really any way of setting it not all the way on. Is the one on the B/E/M like a car where it has different levels maybe?
Anyone else notice the letter in the mail yet?
