 breaking teeth on gears in front axle on a john deere 855

I keep breaking teeth off on a gear in my front axle when digging dirt with my front bucket any reasons why and what to do to prevent it?

I have A JD 4600 with front wheel drive which constantly breaking the mounting bolts and wearing out the front tires. The front wheel drive on the John Deere tractors is a nightmare, they need more engineering

Doesn't sound normal to me!
I've never had any problems, and am interested if either of you are using non-standard tires. If your tires are non-standard, then the front and back wheels will turn at different speeds and something has to slip or give.

Possible cause?

There has to be a reason for your problem!
Is the linkage going all the way in when the front end is locked in? (might be a dumb question but it's my first thought). Do you have the front locked in on hard surfaces? How many times has this happened? I've haven't had any trouble like this with mine and I dig deep hole in the ground alot. I would like to know reason as well.

If I had to guess (which is all I can do with so little info.) I would say that it was caused by the front wheels biting in, the back wheels slipping a little, because the machine is off-balance by the loader weight, and so the front-end gears are the weakest point. If the front tires are the only thing getting traction and the front wheels spin then connect, on a rock or gravel for instances, then as previously stated, something has to give. Best of luck.

I have broken the gears on the front end of my 855 twice on the right side and once on the left side
The front end is locking in everytime and it always happen when trying to dig with the front bucket and the tractor is on dirt
Yes I have the same size tires that came on it so I don't see how that would be the problem
I would have to say also the rear tires are not slipping either
Thanks for the suggestions but I don't think that this is the problem

Howard, Do you use a rear weight while digging?

yes I have my rear tires filled with calcium
I have had them filled since new with no problems till now
I bought my 855 new in 1987 and I have about 890 hours on it now
I know one thing for sure is that it costs alot to fix it was $180.00 just for the parts I'm just lucky I can do the repairs myself

Howard, about the only thing I can think of is that maybe the 4wd lever is staying stuck in 4wd.....so that even when you shift to 2wd for traveling, it is actually staying in 4wd. With a full bucket and good traction, staying in 4wd when traveling would wind up the drivetrain something fierce - and could break the front gears if they are the weak point in the driveline.

thanks for the suggestion but I have gone over every thing there is to adjust and checked to make sure everything is adjusted the right way according to the shop book the gears that are breaking always turn no matter if its in 4wd or not so I don,t think that is the answer thanks any way
