just dont buy solideal tracks. i can say with complete certainty they are cheap garbage. I will be calling the factory monday to see if they are going to stand behind them now that my new set is falling apart on the inside roller path. these tracks have less then 250 hours on them (235 to be exact) and have 99% tread left but they are so "chunked out" i cant tolerate to run them any longer. I cant even begin to describe how bad the machine vibrates.

doug you guys run into any problems with the solideals like ive been having?

His wife had surgery. He has been out of the office most of the week. I will be there Monday and let you know if he is back. I will get the information from him and talk to the rep for him. It may take me a couple days to get an answer.

Ok sounds good, I just needed my machine the last two weeks and I'm at a stand still with a unhappy client.

I can't remember if I told you this or not but my local dealer said john deere is aware of this seal problem on the new drives. He said it is starting to become a common problem and so far they have helped him stand behind all the drives that have failed.

I use to not, but I had another customer recently have problems and I have been fighting tooth and nail to get help. They may have lost my tire business if they do not at least give me some kind of answer. I use to get great service out of Solid Deal. They did not call me back Friday.

I have had better luck out of valuepart. They gave me a great price on knock off Bridgestones and so far my customers like. Started using them in the early summer.

I will check with my rep but I have not had any seal issues. Hope your guy is right. I will take it from Charles and run with it as far as Deere will let me.
