    Default Pedal wear

    has anyone noticed that the rubber pads on all of the pedal of their b series are wearing a bit fast? i only have 20 hours on my b2410 and the foward reverse and clutch all have almost no nubs left on them. there is even a rip in one of the brake pedal pads!

    does anyone know of a metal replacment cover i can get? i was thinking i could use some auto covers.
    thanx for the help.

    Wow, in only 20 hours; you must be stomping hard on those pedals.[img]/w3tcompact/icons/laugh.gif[/img][img]/w3tcompact/icons/laugh.gif[/img] No, seriously, I didn't have that problem in 500 hours and 4 years on the B7100 or 200 hours in a year on the B2710. I wonder whether yours have set out in the weather too long, got a bad batch of rubber, or what.

    Rubber Pads!?! What's this world coming to? My old L175 doesn't have even the vestiges of such an item!

    Well, why don't you fix it, scruffy?[img]/w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif[/img] That was one of the things I didn't like about my cousin's new TC29D; no rubber pads on any of the pedals. Having a foot slip off a pedal, in the right circumstances, can ruin your whole day.[img]/w3tcompact/icons/wink.gif[/img]

    Bird, to be honest about it, I never thought of it! A tractor with rubber pads? I AIN'T never seen one! You'd have to know my Dad, he bought for next to nothing, fixed it and used it for twenty years. I never knew him to have a new anything except for his old 62 GMC one ton farm pickup. That old critter only ran out to 45mph, and if you pushed 50 and held if for half an hour, the engine blew. What a work horse it was though. Rubber pads....h-m-m, I'm gonna have to think about that one. A little paint or glue and sand does wonders though to prevent foot slippage.

    Scruffy, I'm old enough to remember having driven some old cars and pickups (mostly belonging to farmers) which has lost their rubber pads on brake and clutch pedals, and after they lost the pad, the pedal was usually very slick. Of course my cousin's TC29D was built with no pads, so the pedals have anti-skid surfaces. I guess that's just one less thing to maintain, but I like the rubber pads.
