ok so i was pushing up old landscaping blocks rocks and shrubs and somehow one of the bucket clips come off and i sprung something. looks like the rod that goes all the way across is bent at the side that stayed attached.
1. is this a warranty coverage by chance?:unknown:
2. is there something else bent or sprung

Below where you are typing look for the manage attachments button. Click it and then load It from where it is. Then upload. The close window. Then it is just like a regular post.

Unfortunately I don’t see how they would cover that under warranty unless there is a defect found.
Are you posting on a computer or smartphone? To post a pic via smartphone tap the paper clip in the upper right corner and select a photo then tap the arrow after the photo loads.

A pic would be nice but, based on your brief description I would say there isn't much chance of that being covered under warranty unless you have an outstanding dealer who is willing to work something out.

Hopefully nothing else is tweaked. That rod is a regulator to keep both quick attach towers aligned. Without the rod the two lift/curl cylinders can operate at different speeds and make it difficult to get implements attached.

Mine do that anyway, guess i will have a look at that.


If you financed the machine through John Deere, you have John Deere's insurance, as long as you are still making payments. The deductible is 500, so if you tweaked the loader frame, at least you won't be out the cost of a new loader.

It is my understanding that if you finance through John Deere, it is a requirement that their insurance be on the machine, it's something like 4 dollars of your monthly payment. Give your salesman a call and make sure that's the case, if it is it will save you some money, it just saved me 500 bucks for a recent screw up.

If you take it to another shop first, they may deny coverage, I would talk to the dealer first.

Not all Deere financing offers or requires insurance. The JDF Revolving Plan (i.e. 60 month 0%) doesn't involve insurance. At least not as offered in MN in 2016, because that's what my x758 is under and the 60 monthly payments add up quite nicely to the original financed amount.

Deere insurance is optional, your homeowners will satisfy the loan requirement. They require that it be covered if there's thief, or fire.

When I bought it was an option but not a requirement, it was $269 for the 60 months, cheap so I did it.

Deere insurance was optional for me as well. Glad I opted for it. Tore the linear actuator off and bent a couple things that added up to around 2,700.00$. 500$ deductible and I was back in action.

Well, I'm sorry for any confusion I may have caused, that's my mistake then. I could have sworn my salesman told me it was required, but obviously one of us was mistaken.

It might be in your state. Or with the particular financing plan you went with. It's just not universal on every JD financing plan in all states.
