If John Deere watches these boards and admits they have problems with theiraxels why don't they notify us or have the dealer notify us.KenW

I agree. My JD4100 has the problem but so far only the 4200 and up have made mention of a fix. My next tractor will be blue if this problem is not fixed by JD. It was a close call last time and I am not happy with my dealer. Next time the bug bites I will go blue.

Why doesn't JD notify owners when they reduce recommended first change of hydraulic fluid (HST's)from 500 to 50 hrs? Are they now too cheap for even the price of postage? Used to be, we'd always buy green, and sometimes pay more, for the peace of mind knowing our dollars bought quality from a company that would stand behind their products and work hard to keep us coming back. This has not been what I have experienced with Deere over the past year. If there's a next time for buying a new tractor, a visit to blue and orange will definately be made! PS. Still waiting to hear back from the dealer on warranty replacement of my lawn trenching front axle.

 John Deere Scuffing

I'm new to the board, and have been having the infamous scuff problems also (I purchased a 4300 4WD with R4 tires last summer). I just contacted my dealer, and he told me that Deere is in the process of sending out upgrade kits for all 4000 models regardless of tire type. My dealer guesses this upgrade would start in the next few months. That's the latest I've gotten, and from past experiences, I don't think he's making it up.

Just heard from my dealer about my scuffing problem. He said that John Deere will be sending him a new front axle for my 4200. I sure hope this takes care of the problem. I do not know if JD will notify 4000 owners of this fix or if the squeeky wheel gets the oil. I have been calling my dealer every couple of weeks since I first heard of a possible fix on this board! Good luck!

 John Deere Scuffing

have been reading all the posts and thoroughly confused. Have a JD4400 and am not sure what everyone is trying to accomplish. If you use 4WD how can you expect the tractor do dig in without scuffing. These tractors were designed for a close turning radius and it seems like adding extra tie rods only defeats this, plus it gives something to be impacted and disturbed. Looks like the solution would be to install slicks on the front much like lawnmowers have. Of course you defeat the traction. These are a comibination contractor/mowing/farming tractor. I'm sure if JD has come out with something it probably is a consumer compromise defeating their intented purpose of the machine.

 John Deere Scuffing

Chuck, the scuffing is not limited to the use of the tractor in 4 wheel drive. The tractor scuffs badly in two wheel drive even at moderate turning angles. There have been posts on this board where potential buyers have tried the new axle and are quite clear with their claim that the new axle does not scuff. I saw the new axle on a 4400 at a local dealer although I did not have the opportunity to drive it. It appears to be built heavy enough. If you use the tractors to mow with the old axle you will be disappointed. If you don't mow with the tractor it may never be an issue. When I used my 4300 (or my 4600 as soon as it is delivered) for loader work or snow removal it really is not a problem. I am not willing to accept the claim that these tractors are a compromise between an ag tractor, loader tractor and a mowing tractor and that front tire scuffing in two wheel drive mode is a fact of life. The fact that Deere made the change would suggest that they don't agree either.

There's no reason the axle fix need be a "consumer fix" or be weaker.
It sounds as though the original problem is just that that steering
linkage doesn't turn each wheel the proper amount throughout its
whole range. As you reach the steering limit, the inside wheel is
following a much smaller radius circle, and has to be turned more.
(See the New Holland Supersteer machinations for the extreme example
of that.)

I'm kind of surprised that the onl fix they could devise mandates
changing the axle instead of just the steering linkages, but I
haven't looked at the original axles.
