 Broken axle on JD 755

I was pushing dirt with my 755 when I heard a pop. It sounded like a transmission jumping out of gear. The only way it would move was with the differential lock. After getting it home and tearing it apart I found the left axle had twisted off, just outside of the outboard planetarys. I do have loaded bar treads on the tractor, but I am careful when using the loader not to "jam" it in the dirt or abuse it. I called my JD dealer he said he had never heard of it. Has anyone else? The tractor has been trouble free all 470 hours that I have owned it. A new axle is $350.00!!! Ouch. My question is even though the tractor is a 1993 can I expect any help from the dealer? I suspect defective heat treatment. Was there ever a recall? Anyone know where I can buy a used one? Thanks for everyones help in advance.Randy

 Broken axle on JD 755

I've never heard of it....which doesn't mean much, since I don't follow JD in any special way. If there was a recall, then I might not have heard about it. I guess what I'm saying is that talk of an axle problem isn't casual scuttlebutt on the 755 - or for that matter on any tractor that I know about. Oh, one hears of the occasional front axle failure on all of the 4wd tractors, but from how you describe it, I am thinking that yours was a rear axle. That is even odder, as rear tractor axles are monstrously overbuilt.
My gut feeling is that you are right, and this was a defective part - which happens sometimes. It would be hard to imagine what kind of abuse you could dish out which would result in a rear axle failure. Maybe you could talk to the JD dealer or Zone Rep. and make that very argument: That the uncommonness of rear axle failures supports the idea that your part was defective.
For what it's worth, I think that the price is high but not too bad.....and I hope that you don't let an oddball failure get you discouraged about the tractor.
