  • I worked as a mechanic in dealerships from 1976 to 1991. Darned near starved to death. The "company" was very condescending to all of us, and we got so tired of their attitudes. Our monthly payment to had to be WIRED to them, but when they owed us credit for warranty work, well that was an entirely different matter. Six months, a year, just whatever was convenient for them. When the the 55 series tractors showed up, they had an electronic hitch. The hitch controller would burn out just like a light bulb. You couldn't fix it, just buy a new one and teach it how to work, until the new one burned out. We could see the future by the dipswitch locations on the main circuit board that were to be engine and other controls on future models. I gave up in disgust. Our customers hunted me up and soon I had a thriving independent shop. So, guys, just go find some good 40 and 50 series tractors (4240, 4250 and larger) and go for it. These are good, fixable tractors that can do a ton of work without any electronic BS. The Big Tech companies have all of us by the short hairs with cars, trucks, phones TVs, tractors, (hackers), you name it. It's time to go back to common sense (afraid it's too late for that) and simplicity. Good Luck!

  • poot111111 "does any one agree with John deere" 480 comments only 5 maybe to yes.. another 10ish off topic. A few I buy America, Rest are no's Not only does no one agree with this It's john deere is 200% UNAMERICAN anyone dissagree? What american this is your new tractor, this is what you should be aware of, I recommend you bring it to us for this and this and don't play with that. Ohh if you have one of these lock systems, I'd just buy banks or another aftermarket programmable ECU and get diesel guy to tune it at farm. If your in california or other super strickt states emissions you might have to slap some big rig DPF system on, and in know the say that you "need" DEF DEF (actually a DPF with cleaning solution) And DPF Have the same emissions as they are literally the same thing yo, the difference is well the filter cleaning fluid. DPF you just have to work them hard or do high ilde burn (but you can't ignore it) It might cost a few 1000s dollars up front but your tractor won't have leave the farm you'll be able to clear your own code's and cut fuel economy by 60%(in cool parts of the day) close to 50% or so if you can cut the DPF out and tune the motor. My diesel truck stock went from 18MPG (empty) to 28.5 MPG(with utility quad..why take it out?) I was on the line for emissions in my area but still good. the fan is going to kick on more though she'll run a bit hotter, I you have a lot of grades in your area I recommend installing 1-2 EGT sensors. Mine set for race and tow so I have 8 your load won't be as extreme I can't a tractor in need of more than 2.. aside from tractor pulls. Now I know MPG doesn't mean much but what is important is fuel saving by throwing out the stock computer. This is why they had to make the DPF/DEF "law".. Crooks imo

  • John Deere is a private company and they have a right to regulate their products as they see fit. Unless John Deere starts requiring software unlocks for oil changes “right to repair” is a non issue. Complete waste of time talking about it.

  • I am 66 years old and I don't understand today's corporations. In the past, if there was a need, a company or companies would manufacture something to fulfill a need and other companies would try to improve on what was needed and was competition and overall there was progress. The customer would dictate what he needed and companies would try to solve the problem and then the customer would buy the product. Today, everything has gotten screwed up. Companies don't care what the customer wants and tell the customer what he needs. The company perceives a problem the customer has and tells the customer what he needs when there might not be a problem. Then the company produces a product that the customer does not necessarily want. The bottom line is companies now tell us customers what we must buy. There is something wrong with that.

  • The Repair Ban can pretty much be traced back to EPA and CARB regulations. If John Deere doesn't fall within the emissions standards set by these government organizations, they don't get to sell any of their tractors. However, in the end, it is a good step towards a less polluted planet 👍

  • I was on the farmers side until I heard about the regulations thing. Im surprised that it surprised me, but I agree with the manufacture, to an extent. When it comes to Apple, their customers should have the right to repair hardware issues. Theres no environmental regulations that they can screw with too much by fixing a broken screen, and every other phone manufacturer allows 3rd party repairs. When it comes to tractors, I can see the argument that farmers will just add a ton of power to their equipment to make it work faster being a valid argument. I like the idea that another comment had: give farmers the right to repair their own stuff, but void the warranty if they mess with power output or pollution output. If the farmer messes up his equipment to the point it needs to be replaced, thats not the manufactures responsibility and the farmer should pay.
