    Default John Deere - 2,800 Tractors Recalled

    Saw this in the Tennessean newspaper yesterday and thought I'd give you guys the info.

    "Deere & Co. , the world's largest maker of tractors, is recalling about 2,800 tractors because the vehicles seats may break off on a rollover, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said today.

    Because of a bad weld, seat brackets on the John Deere Twenty Series tractors may break when the driver's weight shifts because of a rollover the commission said on its Web site. No injuries have been reported.

    The tractors models, priced between $17,000 and $28,300 were sold between October 2005 and March 2006 . Deere & Co. is notifying customers directly about the recall the commission said. "

    I think that is pretty good that they are admitting to the problem and then takin care of it. That is what makes a good tractor good.

    Any chance they are including the heavy equipment line in with those figures? JD makes quite alot of heavy equipment... some units cost half a million dollars a pop.... real easy to have high 'tractor' sales numbers if they count the heavy equipment section of the company..

    I agree,, they saw a problem and got on it right away.. Best to take care of it immediately. Stall tactics only put doubt in future customers..

    A tractor company that admits its mistakes and stands behind its product. What a concept! While the only JDs I own are mowers (an LT and a push mower), the company has always treated me right if they were responsible for the problem.

    JD website has a notice (dated 07-07-06) in their info center on the serial numbers of the recalled tractors. Mine was not one of them but I printed off a copy to keep with my other paperwork.
