 Loose wheels

Hi gang. Having problems keeping rear lug nuts tight on my 4400. Seem to have seen this issue crop up before. Loose connection to hub means bolt holes are becoming oblong and lug nut threads worn out.

Any insight into how to handle this other than re-torquing the bolts every 15 minutes.

I think I rememer someone else having this problem and having a severe hassle with Deere about it. Before I go to my dealer I would like some background on what the problem is, how to solve it and what Deere did to resolve it. That always makes it easier to deal with the dealer.

Thanks!

I know there was a warranty/service bulletin on the topic. Deere might fix it free, but I do not know what exactly the fix is.

If no success with Deere, I believe you can find some weld in inserts at Gemplers.com.

Ask your dealer to reference bulletin # 01-11-35-05. It spells out the required work to fix this problem. It only affects the flat steel wheels. Not "coined disk design". The fix requires using heli-coils to repair any damaged threads in the axles and replacing the tapered seat lugs with special bolts with flat washers.
