 Problems

I have a JD 4400 and purchased it in Nov. 1999 with a 430 loader and a 48 backhoe.I have had several problems with it.First, I was digging on day and lost all hydraulic speed and it turned out to be the PTO brake was defective. It put tons of metal shavings throughout the hydraulic system. I took it to my dealer and he replaced the PTO brake and had to replace some gears and the whole left hand side axle housing. I am now experiencing problems with the PTO. If you turn off the tractor with PTO engaged you cannot start it and you cannot take the PTO out, it is stuck. It won't come out of gear. Overall, I am not happy with my 4400.

Don't forget the 1 800 number in the back of your owners manual. If your local dealer wont make good let Deere know. I had a similar situation and got marvelous results after calling the 1 800 number.

Brian,if you search the archives on this board for 4000 series problems,you will find you're not alone.Deere has had a lot of problems with the early models such as yours.From what I have seen lately,Deere is trying to address the problems,and improve on the newer models.I'm not Deere bashing here,I would say for every 1 unhappy owner,there are 100 happy ones.But if I were you I would try to obtain an extended warranty from the dealer or Deere,so you're covered until they get the bugs worked out.If that does'nt set with you,than I would try to sell or trade,there is nothing worse than being disatisfied with anything you have purchased.I know this has crossed your mind,and you feel like you'll lose your butt,but a mans pease of mind is worth quit a bit.
