    Same thing here. Seat and RIO disabled. Asked dealer when bringing in for service. Was told they would not restore to functional but would mention it to me when I picked it up. I have also read the same that they are required to restore disabled item to functional, that's the reason I asked. So like stated it seems to depend on dealer. Haven't picked it up so I'll see!

    My 595 is 15 yrs old and reliability has been golden. Today (in Wis and temp is 25F), the engine stops running as soon as I release the brake pedal. I took the underseat switch to my JD dealer. Service people told me that JD's garden equipment is notorious for a problem in this area. They tested the switch and it was okay. They said it could be bypassed, but weren't authorized to tell me how.
    So can someone enlighten me? (a customer in the store said fixing the problem can be fixed simply with a paper clip).
    thanks jim

    I just put on my flame resistant Nomex jacket.

    I hate safety switches and disable them all the time, there's no substitute for proper training, habits, and situational awareness.

    As long as you are the only one that operates the machine, do as you like. I have my RIO disabled, but not the seat switch, or push the brake pedal to start system on my x485.

    If a case ends up in court, you won't have a defense.

    Guess I better not sell the old C. It doesn't have even one switch or device to keep me safe!

    Not to mention, why would I sue the manufacturer if I disabled a "safety" and subsequently got hurt? It would be my own fault (personal responsibility).

    Glad I donned my Nomex jacket!

    IN a safety meeting at a JD plant had a case of one guy starting a push mower in his basement and hr needed to keep it running. While the mower was running he carried it up the steps. At the top he was going to balance the mower one one leg and one hand. While reaching for the door knob and with the mower running it slipped onto the legs and arm.

    Obviously it was his own stupidity and fault but still sued and JD paid the $$$ to not have to go to court.

    13 Millimeter = 1/2"--------25 Milimeters=1"-----------100 Millimeter = 4"----------1 Meter = 40---------1 Kilometer = 3300' or 5:8 ratio

    A 13mm will but will be just slightly larger than a 1/2" nut.

    I have this problem with my 2025R and had it with the 4010 (more or less the same tractor with less hp and fewer goodies) for when using the chipper/shredder. I just use a bungee cord to keep the back of the seat up against the ROPS.

    If someone else is injured , it does not look good in court to have purposely defeated safety equipment somewhere, even if the person was not injured with that equipment .It shows a mindset in the eyes of the court of a person who disregards safety as a general rule.

    And who says it doesn't pay to be stupid!
