 JD 4400---2 questions

Just got my 4400 a couple of weeks ago (ordered in April) and I've used it 3 times. Overall I'm extremely pleased with the performance of the tractor,but if somebody would help me I'd like to know two things: 1.I've got turf tires, use it in 2 wheel drive, run a 60" belly mower, and turn fairly slow, and I have the same problem with tire scuffing that others seem to be having. One posting that I read said that when they adjusted the toe in on the front end that it helped this problem a lot. How difficult is it to do this? 2. At normal operating speed there is a lot of 'HOT' air being blown from the engine onto the left side of the operator's platform. This is terribly uncomfortable to the point that I usually move my left foot to the center of the platform. Does anyone else experience this or do I maybe have some type of cover missing or some other problem? Thanks for any help!!!!

Mel,Can't help you with #1 (yes - I too have experienced the scuffing on my 4400 but just got in the habit of making easier turns; haven't tried adjusting the toe in). Regarding the HOT air, sounds like you definitely have a problem. When using the tractor, I am frequently in shorts and sneakers - I've never experienced any discomfort (nor does my left foot get the slightest bit warm...). If closer inspection doesn't reveal the cause of this problem, sounds like a warranty item for the dealer to fix. Good luck. Smile)

Mel, I also noticed the "hot air" problem you described. Though not serious, it is a bit annoying generally just on real warm days. It appears to be coming from the hole in the housing around the flywheel.Your post said that you have the 60" mower. Are you satisfied with the cutting performance. I think it does a pretty good job of cutting. I wish I had purchased the 72" deck because the 60" doesn't cut the complete width of the rear tires. Would you get another 60" deck?

I got the 60" instead of the 72" because I have some trees that I mow around and I was afraid that the 72" would be too big to handle in and around them. I also cut some uneven areas running beside my driveway and I figured the 60" would do a better job on this. The deck is definitely heavy duty and does a great job on my yard so I wouldn't hesitate to get another 60"

Mel, I posted the message about the toe in, what I done to check it was to take a ruler or tape and measure the distance from the middle of each tire, rear then front, then subtract the two numbers, that will tell you if your are toe in or out,( mine was about 1 3/16). These two numbers should be pretty close, if not then lossen the two lock nuts on the tie rod ends, turn each tie rod in or out to make the front and rear the same, screwing in, will toe the the front out and screwing out will toe the front in, screw each one the same amount. Make sure you measure each time you make a turn, not knowing how well your know about tie rod ends there one on each wheel and connected to the steering rack, there is a grease fitting on top of it as well, hope this helps. (Try to keep the toe the same! front and rear.)
