 Front-end tire gouging on Deere 4300

I recently purchased a Deere 4300 hst 4 wheel drive with turf tires. The front end agressively marks my lawn when turning. My dealer tells me that Deere is aware of the problem but won't have a fix for some time. I was wondering if anyone else has a similar experience and what they are doing to try to temper the gouging

I have a JD4400 with turfs and it does not damage the lawn unless its in 4WD, are you using 4WD on the lawn? if you are that's the problem. Tom

 Front-end tire gouging on Deere 4300

I have a 4100 with Turf Tires and mow with a mid-mount deck. If 4WD is engaged and you turn sharply, the turf will be scuffed sometimes from the front tire and sometimes from the inner rear depending on the inclination of the tractor when turning. There is no "fix" to this other than to alter the driving technique. When you make a sharp turn the 4 wheels all follow paths of different lengths on the surface and some scuffing has to occur when the front and rear are geared together in 4WD. I have a very steep hill area in my lawn and must use 4WD on it primarily for downhill braking. I use 2WD on the flat portions of the lawn and 4WD only on the hills. When in 4WD make wide turns. Then the scuffing is hardly noticable.

Same response as "Jack in IL". Don't forget that your speed while turning also has a lot to do with it. You don't exactly have a light tractor for finish mowing. All of these factors play a big part in your problem.

Hello SIR:You must be unkowning that it is VIOLATIOn of international treademarkes and copyirght to use trademark and company logos of all the registered companys such as John Deer, Boomer, Kuobta. Unless you have received written permission from these firms, you cannot use.Also, from technical point of view, you are "leeching" the images from the home sites, which is in eff3ect theft of their bandwidth. The is bad ethics web paging.Please make all necessary adjustments to your web board.Thyank you.Y Sano

I have a 4400 that is a lemon. I aggresively grabs when turning in 4 or 2wd. I have had it for a little more than 6 months and it has been in the shop 1.5 of them. I wish JD would repo the damn thing and give another one. I owned a 755 and 955 with very little problem and thought that I would have the same experience with this one but was wrong.

Yoshima,This is one of the most helpfull informative sites on the web for those that would like to purchase or use a compact tractor. I would say that many, many, people have made better,more informed decisions based on information from this site. The web master of this page pays close attention to the content of the board and maintains a smooth running site that is always up and running. I am certain the he is aware of all of the rules and regulations which you felt complelled for whatever reason to point out. In closing, your post was pointless.

You obviously don't know English too well, otherwise you could spell John Deere and Kubota. Why you go back to Japan, or stay there and leave this very helpful forum alone
