Just wondering if anyone else has experienced problems with the fuel pump on 1026R...mine stopped pumping at 5.9 hours. It was acting up from the very start. Getting great dealer support, so don't see a long term problem... really was impressed, enjoying the machine, until it started acting up ...dying, stopping, starved for fuel. Wonder who makes these pumps? Yanmar??

This is the first fuel pump problem I have heard about so far, the only other problem I read about was the front wheel problem discussed in another thread. No clue if Yanmar makes the pumps or outsources them.

Gary,

What a bad break. :thumbsdown:

The good news is, it happened while warrenty still covers the repair. Sometimes these things happen. With any real luck this will be the only problem you will have. Keep us up to date on this. :good2:

Are you planning any modifications yet?

Don't forget we will want to see your new pride and joy.

IMO,that's why it's a bad idea to get an inuagural product.

Yes ... but, someone has to do it! Hopefully there will not be too many problems to iron out. It is quite a machine... drives, handles really nice... seems solid, with lots of nice features. Also, "ran like a Deere" (at least until the fuel pump went out!)... so, probably worth some headaches at the start.

Hello Gary

You do have a point,and like Randy stated,it's warranted.
It's just a shame though you are inconvenienced with a brand new machine.
Hope things get resolved.

Please besure that you have the fuel injection return line checked. Mine stopped running the other night and my dealer discovered that the return line from the inj pump to the tank was pinched and wouldn't let any fuel be pumped. I ran my tractor 200 hrs before this problem developed.

I can understand that stance, but I'm also glad I got an earlier one because mine doesn't have the RIO b.s. like the new ones...
