 New Holland recall

I just got my certified letter today that I had to sign for. Dear new Holland customer Our records show you own a TC40DA
There is a potential safetey concern that a component malfunction in the PTO brake may result in loss of PTO brake function. This could result in great bodily injury or death. To eliminate this conscern, your New Hollend tractor dealer will remove and replace the brake stop plate.
DO NOT OPERATE THE PTO ON THIS TRACTOR
We are asking that you contact your dealer and arrange to have this improvement made to your unit free of charge.
Failure to folow this warning may result in injury or death!
To qualify for free parts and labor under campaign 000250 please contact your new holland dealer imediatley. If you no longer own this machine please advise your dealer who does.
We believe this will improve the performance of your tractor and ask that you contact the dealer as soon as possible.

OK I Paraphrased some of it but most is verbatem.
What do you all think? This must be pretty serious if they sent it out certified and a signature was needed? I have a 90 mile drive to get to the dealer, not bad but far enough to take up 2 days. 1 to get there and have them work on it and one to get it back.
How about the guys who bought their tractor from a OUT OF STATE dealer that may be hundreds or thousands of miles away? You think many LOCAL dealers will offer to pick up the extra work???
So I take it, that this sounds like at any time the brake on the pto can disengage and the pto can start? Sound about right?

Since this is a safety recall, I'd bet NH dealers wouldn't have a choice. That is if they want to continue to be a NH dealer. Companies take this kind of stuff pretty serious.

I'm sure any close dealer will take care of your problem probably including pick up and delivery, NH is'nt going to take a chance on a tractor with a safetry hazzard being on the loose. Warantys can be decieving now and then, for example the waranty on the furnace in the house we live in. I'll be the first to admit I did'nt read the fine print in the warranty statement. I just assumed that 5 year waranty meant parts and labor, in reallity within 2 years the dealer called that they were coming to install a new heat exchanger that the originals posed a safety hazzard. The service people came installed the exchanger and a week or so later I get a big fat labor bill so called the dealer. He simply said read your warranty, it doesn't include labor only parts, too bad send the money. I did, but I sure won't buy from him again. I guess we just trust people a bit too far sometimes. Frank.

Yes our dealership is one of the ones that have brought this up.

You do not have to worry too much though. What is happening is people trying to shut down the pto at full speed with out idling down the tractor first and the big shock load is transfered to the pto brake.

It is also about a 10 hour job to replace the brake.

I think they would have sent out the same fancy notice if the seat safety switch was recalled. The only way it really poses a risk is if it fails at the same time that you turn off the pto and then fall into some pto implement that is still turning, or someone gets tangled and you try to shut it off quick. If you fell off the tractor the engine would shut off and pto would have to stop anyway with the engine. I would really have to put a lot of thought into wasting 2 days for that recall.

Also, If it is a 10 hour job, I assume they have to split the tractor? If this is the case, I would think a guy might want to go to his dealer and not just any dealer he may not know to much about? Could a guy be opening up a can of worms by allowing the tractor to have this done to it? I realize that qualified and well trained mechanics would have no problems but, when ever you split a tractor apart well you know?

Let me put you at a little bit of ease. Who ever is doing your repair has gone though all training and yours will 9 out of 10 will not be the first that he has done. The majority of the time involved is removing and installing the operator's platform. The actual splitting of the tractor and putting back together only takes about 6 hours. that includes pulling the guts putting in the beefed up brake AND PTO clutch pack. To also say you are going to get a PTO clutch that is much stronger than the existing. Yes it will be at least two days but it is worth it and it will cost you nothing.

Sold!!!! Thanks Oneace for the reasurance. Although you have not sold me on just any dealer. I will take the time to bring it to the dealer I bought it from. Although I have no knowlege of the mechanics there, I do know how they run a buisness. Also they not only have just a tractor buisness they also have 3 other locations that have logging equipment and construction equipment. Although that does not concern me, my buddy is a logger and he is the one that turned me on to this company. Has had nothing but good experiances and so far I can not say any different either.
One other thing. Since I had a small amount of hyd. fluid on the ground under the tractor when I used it last. I might as well have them take care of that also under warrenty. I was going to look inot it myself this spring but I can kill tow birds now with one stone.
Hey thanks again Oneace
