 4310 transmission recalibrate?

My 4310 is about a week late now (ordered Feb.22), it was supposed to be here last weekend but was pulled off the truck. I asked the dealer what the problem was and He contacted Deere and they said they were having some problem with the transmission, they would recalibrate it and I would have it in a week from now. Has anybody heard of recalibrating and what does it mean, are they giving me a line of sh*#? Don't like to hear about transmission trouble coming from my new machine.

 4310 transmission recalibrate?

Never heard of recalibrating one, but there was a safety related recall that affected some machines. Perhaps the serial number of yours fell in that range. My 4310 was not affected so I'm not sure what the problem was.

 4310 transmission recalibrate?

CraigC,
which type of transmission did you order on your 4310?
i just took delivery of a new 4310 mfwd ehydro about a month
ago,haven't had any real problem with it so far. just during the first few hours when engaging the forward pedal
the transmission wouldn't respond to move forward.it only
happen a few times,i now have just over 20 hours on it and
it hasn't happen again.

The recall affected less than 1400 4310 tractors with HST, serial numbers LV4310H232267 through LV4310H233638

I guess I should have said it is an ehydro. I complained to the dealer about waiting so long and not having a mower to use, sold mine just before I ordered this one, so He did bring me a 757 zero turn demo, sure works nice but I can't have everything.

Hey Art, could it be something like what Kubota and NH are having with their hydros?

 4310 transmission recalibrate?

Rather than try to regurgitate the entire procedure here. If you have a shop manual look on pg. 312. It calls for the calibration of the drive train electronic opertation system to match components if any of the following are replaced:

a. proportional valve
b. proportional valve solenoid
c. drive controller
d. complete hydrostatic transmission

It is hard to tell what your dealer may have replaced but my guess would be that he either recieved a 4310 subject to the transmission recall and may have replaced a. and/or b. Or he may have recieved the machine with a faulty controller and replaced it. The controller is a pretty quick fix and would not take that long so I would be more inclined to go with the first guess of transmission recall.

Contact the dealer and ask him what he replaced that required the drive system calibration. The subjective part is whether you want a new tractor that may already have been torn apart? My instinct tells me that I would insist on another new tractor. In my opinion if a machine has had major repair dissassembly; it is NO LONGER a new machine but that is just my opinion. Another option might be to instist on a free extended warranty.

From reading your post, I am not sure if the dealer is doing the work or the factory. It sounds as if the factory is doing this work? In any case; I sure can understand your concerns. The factory guys more than likely wanted to make a repair/recall before it left the factory. Understandably so. I would be concerned too. Somebody needs to come clean and brief you on EXCACTLY what was the problem with your 4310 and what EXACTLY was done to it to repair it. Good luck and hope all works out to your full satisfaction.

Chief, it never left the factory. Quite honestly I don't know if what they are saying is even true, makes you wonder if they dropped it off the truck or what happened.
