    Default M7040 Throttle Adjustment

    My 7040 has a little over a hundred hours on it and the hand throttle slowly backs off while using the machine. Before I start tearing stuff apart, is there a friction adjustment on it? Is it easy to get to?

    Thanks

    With that few hours it should be a warranty matter. Let the dealer deal with it. The dealer should send out a mechanic rather than requiring you to haul in the tractor.

    Hi Richard.
    I havnt notice any problem with this on my m7040.
    It must by fairly easy to fix it. Friction-wise, I think you feel it by testing what works for you. Good luck.

    Yep, I would leave it up to the dealer myself.

    I'm sure it is an easy fix, I was just asking if anyone had to do this and what was involved. I'll tear off the side panel and see if there is a screw and washer that can tighten the friction.

    I also know the detent on my remote valve works fine in one direction but doesn't lock very well in the other direction.
