Ross, I was pulling a stump out of my Dad's yard today and was all over it pulling and pushing and didn't leave a single scuff mark. I believe the scuffing problem has been fixed. I did tear the grass up a little spinning the tires but no scuffing.

They are picking up my tractor tomorrow to put on the new axle on my
4200. I thought I had read that they have to change the hyd steering pump to
a larger unit as well for this fix, but my dealer says no.

Can anyone who has had their tractor fixed comment on this?

thanks,

Brent

Brent, yes they do install a larger pump. They also install new p/s lines, which are fairly hard to get at according to my dealer. He said that they underestimated the actual installation time due to the pump/line installation. Make sure that you check the turn angle from lock to lock. Mine and several other posters have mentioned that the axle turns much sharper to the right than to the left due to a misadjusted toe setting after installation. I think the new axle is the best thing that has happened to my tractor. No scuffing when mowing in 2x4 now.

All I can say is that you guys are some of the lucky ones to have dealers that stand behind their products after the sale. I just got off the phone with JD Customer Service and was told that the dealer is the one that's suppose to advocate to the Area Service Rep my problem with the scuffing. If the dealer doesn't feel that what I do with my tractor should require me to make tight turns then he won't present my warranty claim to the Rep. That's ludicrous !!
It's like telling me that there's nothing wrong with my tractor if I don't make any tight turns. I paid $20K for a tractor to be told to go only in a straight forward direction. HELP

Hey guys,
i too have the 4400 that has the new axel. it has been a joy to work with and own.......now. prior i was not too happy about the whole axle thing, but the tractor performed great. By the way, this is the second 4400 that i owned, the first one the dealer bought back at my cost and got me 4600 that i turned down because of the size of it. I ended up taking another 4400 that was a newer model and it has been great. the first 4400 had too many probs and i just didn't trust it. it had all the problems Mike has described, and then some. anyway, i had 3 deeres prior and they were good machines so i gave them the benefit of the doubt and tried another one. I'm glad i did. hope everyone else gets the best out of their dealer, i think that is the weak link in the chain. good luck.

I installed the kit myself on my 4400. The crate comes with axle, steering control, new pump 100cc, and new pressure oil line that mates with the pump...you don't need to change any hoses...but time takes a lot longer than JD allows the dealer...it took me about 10 hours...JD only allows dealer about 5. I really like the new front....no turning problems after installation...right and left are the same....really makes the difference in the tractor...absolutely no scuffing in 2wd...front end is green rather than black....I've got pics of my installation if anyone interested....
