 some info on lenar tractors.

Hello, my name is Patrick, I live in Michigan. I like many wanted a tractor for use on my horse farm, but didnt want to pay the price for a tractor from the major companies so I bought a brand new lenar tractor. Well, that was when my trouble started because in a period of 6 months, I have had a total of 4 of these POS. The dealer was about 120 miles from me, and the first tractor started to have an engine knock right after we loaded it on my trailer. The dealer said no problem, I will give you a new one, come back next week. Well he did give me a new one, and that one lasted a total of about 36 hrs because it blew 3 hydraulic hoses befor he came to pick it up and replace it with another new one. The one he dropped off to me broke in half at the transmission housing at about 40 hrs. So here he comes again with a new one. That one wouldnt go and still doesnt go into four wheel drive, plus it has a major oil leak and hydraulic leaks. And are you ready for this, it only has 36 hrs on it!!!!! Now I am stuck with this POS because he is out of business, no warranty, and the brand new warranty I have from FAIL SAFE was a sensless buy because no one will work on the tractor. There is a dealer in Memphis that said he will work on it, just bring it with me the next time I come to Tennessee. IF I had this to do over again, I would have bought me a shovel or a tractor from a major company. I know, you get what you pay for, but this is rediculous. None of the tractors worked the way they should have, they all had miss aligned prox switches for the tail lights, all had some sort of oil leak or hydraulic leak. Chinese tractors need to stay in China in the rice fields, they can not handle the hard american soil.

Patrick, with all due respect it sounds like you have a bias toward China tractors. I regret your experiences were much less than you expected but there are many of us and I am one of them that purchased a China tractor and have had only good luck with it. I am a mechanic for 30 years and have worked on just about everything from cars, trucks, heavy equipment, etc, and they are all flawed somewhere as they are made by man, and man in nature, is flawed. If you state there are issues with China tractors I would wholeheartly agree, but these are not major instances, but more isolated. I for one could not justify spending 12K for what I spent on my 224, which was about 5300. Suits my needs perfectly and I do not baby it. I do not wish to start a bashing forum as I'm sure the moderators of Tractorpoint want neither. If we stick to facts as per problems/failures we let others make their own opine without verbage not conducive to the post.
Regards, Harry G

With all due respect, Patrick made his point four Lenar 274's have died a sudden death, including splitting in half. I have owned and worked on tractors since 1972 and have never had or heard of such a fiasco. Presently own a Jinma 304, assembled from a crate, and love it. Sometimes you don't get what you paid for and in this instance Patrick didn't.

Patrick,
I am sorry to hear about your misfortune! I hope I can be of some help. If the tractor will not go into four-wheel drive, will the lever to engage the four-wheel drive move? Do you have a FEL on the tractor?

Patrick your problem sounds like a serious case of dealer-itis. The probability of a single customer getting four consecutive lemons from the factory - is very very low. I'd be more inclined to say the problems you describe came from shoddy assembly work at the dealership.

As for the 2wd/4wd lever, roll a front wheel an inch or two in both directions -- to create a mild rocking action - while applying pressure to the lever. If that works, thinner oil in the transmission/transfer case should eventually loosen up a "sticky" lever

Further to the lever thing Patrick: my current JM254 did the same thing for a while. My guess was that the thick Chinese motor oil that comes from the factory deposited a load of metal shavings on that lever's pivot point.

Once the rocking trick confirmed that the lever would actually shift, I drained the transmission/transfer case - and gave it a GOOD flushing with kerosene. Drained and refilled with a 75W90 non-foaming gear oil, and the 2wd/4wd shift lever has worked fine ever since.
