    Is that frame cast?
    Cast can be welded, but.....

    I wonder what the issue is with these tractors..... 2 broken frames in a month or so, seems suspect to me

    It is not cast. You only will see cast on older tractors from what I understand. Most newer tractors are not cast. If it were cast, you can forget about any welding repair that will hold.

    That's amazing that the are willing to fix it out of warranty, there are very few companies that would do that. Could the frame be reinforced some way to keep this from happening?

    Wow, that's cheap. I've spend more than that on gas already.So TYM is for the most part going to warranty the part or work for you even though it is out of warranty? If this isn't a selling foint for TYM, I don't know what is.

    One ideal I had thought about as far a reinforcing the frame would be to directly weld the front end loader "T' post directly on the frame which would act as support brackets. Right now they are just bolted on as you can see from my posted pictures in the beginning of this tread. The T post brackets are so much thinker than the tractor frame its self. I lind of wish the frame would have been made a little stouter than it is. On the inside of the frame there is not a lot of room for welding in support brackets and it would be almost impossible to get to the very top of the beam unless you started taking off stuff.

    Well, other than what I would call a tractor frame that could use some thicker gauge metal, the TYM has been pretty tough for her size and I can't really complain too much with 454 hrs on a tractor I bought in 2007. Still, I wish they still built them as tough as the old Ford 3600. If you don't mind be asking, what were you doing when the frame broke? With me, it's entirely possible that I might have induced a little more torque on the frame they I should have. With a full load of dirt, I don't think I was quite on a level surface and had one of my front wheels slightly higher on part of the dirt mount. With my load and the front end at a slight tilt angle, my only theory is that I put too much strain on the frame. This is only a guess however because it's entirely possible that a crack might have formed over time then finally gave loose. A hint on this could be the the crack picture I posted in that some parts of it look new and some look old (shinny vs dull). That being said, prom now on, I'm going to be more aware of the ground I'm on when hauling full loads of dirt. and try to stay on a more level surface from now on. I don't ever want to have to go through this again.

    Yeah, I only got a 3 year warranty when I bought mine. At the time, they were not offering 5 year warranties.
