/ What kind of brakes on M7040 & how hard is it to renew? #11
yep learned to start doing this after the second time i drove with the brakes on. for what these things cost. a 5 dollar light wouldn't kill themMechanical design is good...the lack of a warning light isn't.
I make a habit of kicking the brakes off EVERY time I get in the seat, and then again once moving to confirm the pedals released.
I'm in the steep timber a lot. I've developed cautious habits in regards to getting off the tractor. Once I leave the seat I see the tractor as the enemy. My M9540 has a "park" selection in the trans. I don't trust it at all. I'll spend an extra couple minutes moving around to find a safe way to park the tractor.As I was out there that's exactly what I was thinking after I backed down. I don't need to get hurt and I don't want my tractor to get hurt either.
