 JD 4000 Ten Series-thread for all comments on new line

Can we start a thread for all comments on the new twn series-4000 series. I have been looking at a 4310 but heard little about the good or bad points. Also anyone with experience on the line or known problems please chime in

So far it looks like I saw a loader issue on the 4310 when using the number 48 hoe it was not attaching properly

Also the seat switch on another was set a little sensitive so going down hill the drivers weight would kick off the unit

Please keep the good and bad comments comming so we can have a thread

I like the new line, the new ehydro is great because the unit is electronically controled and now you have a hard time stalling the unit if doing loader work.

Nice looking to

Have you tried placing the tires in the "wide" position to correct the problem with rubbing? Installing the tires in the wide position is sometimes forgotten and is required for backhoe installation.

what do you mean by wide position?

They verified the adaptor kit is correct, and also tried a new one. They consulted with Deere and verified the tires are correct. They have a 60 in mid mount mower on it so if you take the tires out any further it will rub on the deck

They indicated this is the first 4310 with #48 hoe shipped inthe country so the problem was just discovered

I dont want them to hack some structural pieces off to make it work, its the two flat pieces that look like steps, not the legs that rub

When preparing the tractor the backhoe operation manual reminds and tells you to place the rear wheels in the wide position. The wider stance makes the tractor more stable and gives you extra space. Since most of the tractors are shipped in a narrow position they need to be turned out at the dealership. Tractors used for mower on roadsides will often have the front and rear wheels in the wider position for stability. It looks a bit funny from the rear, but I was much more comfortable with the tractor on hillsides.

The 00 Series had some tire interference but mostly with the front tires. JD claims to have corrected those and other attachment problems with the 10 Series. I think they changed the attaching hardware for the mmm decks and can move the deck forward or backwards to keep away from the tires.

It sounds like a simple solution that is easily forgotten. I hope this helps.

Had a chance to look at the JD service manual on the 48 hoes and they mention that the steps have to be mounted away from the tires (towards the back of the tractor), maybe it's something as simple as swapping the stabilizers side to side?

I believ I have the safety switch figured out on the seat of my 4310. I was able to adjust the yellow knob under the seat and it seems to have helped for the most part. Although the tires did lock up on me yesterday as I was going down a hill mowing. I know I am new to tractors, but I am not sure I like the tires locking up. When the tires locked up on me yesterday, I ended up sliding down the hill (it was a short hill), and I felt like I had no control over the tractor. It tore up the yard pretty good too.

Like I said, I am new to tractors and it may just take some getting used to on my part. I have only put one hour on it since I it was delivered last Friday. We have had heavy rain every day, and the days it didn't rain, my father in-law was either on it or I had other committments. It's a bummer. I have been looking at tractors for a year now and I finaly have one, but every weekend in May and the first weekend in June is tied up with weddings, graduations and baptisms.

I think once I get to actually use it to mow and use the loader, I will be happy with it.

Can someone tell me if it is difficult to set the tires out to the wider width?

Thanks for the tips and I will keep you posted on how I like my new 4310.

Don,

When it locked up on the hill, did the unit stall. I had this happen in the past but only if the unit was not running, my guess is the seat switch shut you down but then again on my 755 the seat switch only really shuts off the mower deck. What exactly happpened, what were you operating at the time.Were you breaking or using the low gear of the tractor
