 4310 exhaust stack

Just wondering if anybody has tried John Deere's verticle exhaust stack? Dealer told me it would blow smoke right in your face, I told him tractors have stacks and they don't wear turf tires.

Haven't tried it but I'm having a hard time imagining why someone would want to. If nothing else it hurts forward visibility. What are the advantages?

Why would you want a vertical stack ?
Tree limbs hit it, water more likely to enter from rain, and in my opinion the noise is more noticable than the underhood design when mowing for long periods.

Just thought of one other thing I don't like about the vertical stack.
Most of the scratchs on the hood of my JD 850 are from hitting the stack when flipping the hood open.

 4310 exhaust stack

The vertical stack is the only way to go. When mowing or working into the wind I always got some exaust odor from that stupid pipe under the front.

I do very rarely now get a whiff. There is no noticeable noise increase.

Yup tree limbs do touch it. Big deal!

I can only go 13-14 mph flat out so I'm not too concerned about something running out in front of me and missing it.

Yup if water gets down it, it will slobber but that washes off.

The hardest part was cutting the hole in the hood.

And BTW my little baby tractor wears turfs, it works in the woods, it works on wet fields, it works in snow and ice, it loads gravel, it runs my BH, it works every where. Oh yeah and it still mows 2 acres on Sunday afternoon.

Harey, I think the issue of water going down the vertical stack is not so much the mess it makes when you start it up but it enough water is allowed to go down the stack; it can enter the engine cylinder through a potentially open exhaust valve and can have dissasterous consequences such as bending a connecting rod or worse. In machinery that sets for long periods, this can also freeze or make the engine become stuck. There should be a flapper on the end of the exhaust stack pipe to prevent water from entering. If one is not installed; I STRONG recommend you install one.

 4310 exhaust stack

My only experience with stacks came when my kids were toddlers. At Christmas time I would put the empty wrapping paper tube down their shirts from the neck opening down their back and into their diapers. Then they could proudly crawl or walk around with a vertical exhaust that stuck up about a foot above their heads. Unfortunately it didn't solve the odor under the hood problem.

I don't see the water problem being an issue at all because my tractor will never sit outside. I don't see much of a vision issue from a 2" pipe and as far as your hood rubbing your muffler when you open or close the hood, ther must be something wrong.

Craig,

This is why JD offers the vertical stack option. Some people prefer them. It's really a personal choice.

ITs not the limbs hitting the vertical stack the bothers me, its the ones that hit the stack, bow over then come back and snap me in the face that I don't like.
