 4410 with 20 hrs, and on my 2nd problem....

All in all, I really like my 4410 and it did a fantastic job over the winter snowblowing the driveway, but after the initial problem of having to have the e-Hydro controller replaced shortly after the tractor was dropped off in my driveway (they picked the tractor up at no charge), I noticed over the weekend that I now have oil dripping from the left/rear tire seal (where the wheel attaches to the axil).
I called the dealership and they said that they will pick up the tractor to bring it back back to the shop, but I will have to pay the $100 transportation charge. Needless to say I'm not very happy about this.

My question is, is this seal leak a problem that other people have had with their tractors, that are this new?Thanks.

- Tim

Tim, I have about 42 hours on my 4410 and no leaks. Knock on wood! I see that you live a pretty cold climate. My experience with hydraulics and power trains tells me to first try wiping off the seal and operating the tractor for several hours before replacing the seal. Especially if the tractor has been sitting for a long time. In my job as a maintenance test pilot I find alot of helicopter that have been sitting of extended periods of time or experiencing a sudden large change in temperature/climate will leak pretty bad. Before I had the mechanics replace the seals, I would run up and fly the helicopter for an hour or 2 and have the crewchief wipe down all the seals. Many times the leak stopped...... sometimes not; but I would try that first. I hate the thought of the dealer mechanics tearing my Green Machine apart; you run the risk of them screwing something else up. Exactly how bad is the leak? (i.e. drops per min./hr.?)

Hi Chief -

Wow, that's quite the job you have!
Best of luck with your 4410. It's a great tractor.
I have used the tractor with the front-end loader several different times now, since taking of the snowblower. I first noticed the oil on the inside of the tire. So, when I found out where the leak was coming from, I counted a drip every 12 seconds or so. But, since it's been parked for a few days since, I noticed one hanging drop (but didn't stay long to watch)
I'm going to hate to have them tear it apart too, but I definitely don't have the mechanical know-how to attempt it myself. Let's hope this will be the last problem for a while! Smile
Thank you.

- Tim

One drip every 12 seconds is definitely too much. I agree, it is going to take a trip to the dealer. Don't you or a friend have a trailer you can take the tractor to the dealer on? $100 is BS for something like that! Especially for a tractor with that few hours on it! But that sounds about right. Usually they charge around $1.50 per mile.

We occaisionally had the same problems with our 'Bota's after a season of doing snow removal. We finally figured out what was happening, when working in deep snow the seal would get nicked by hunks of ice buried in the snow, when the weather warmed up and the oil got more fluid, it seeped out.

Basically you have to put guards under the axles, or make sure you don't bury the axle in deep snow or be prepared to replace at least one a year.

Best of luck.
