Lesco Renovator 20 Drive Chain Problems

I have a Lesco Renovator 20 and recently no matter what I do the drive chain keeps coming off. I adjusted the tension correctly, oiled the chain, etc and still it comes off.

I replaced the large sprocket yesterday on the shaft since it appeared that the teeth were worn --- this did not help. Now I'm about to order the small sprocket which goes on the hydraulic pump. Could it be the chain????

Besides for this what could it be???? Its not complex... there is nothing hitting the chain causing it to come off.

Thanks for your assitance.

chain issues

We had a similar problem and the chain was stretched as well as the sprockets being worn. A new chain and sprockets fixed the problem.

I had this problem repeatedly. I took it back to JD/Lesco same story... all in all what I did that seemed to resolve the problem was alignment and I removed the master link in the chain. The master link I am not so sure was catching on the sprockets and moving the chain off. It sucked, but so far so good now... For what it's worth.
