Tractor
Kubota L6060
2015 Case 55C. Driveshaft went out and took a couple of parts with it. Tractor has been sitting since late February now. There are no parts available in the US at the moment from any dealer and Case cannot even give us a timeline on when they will be made available. Anyone else having to wait this long for newer tractor parts? If your a dealer and happen to have a tractor for parts let me know. I could use a gear and coupler. Case IH 47616534 COUPLING x 2 & Case IH 47933025 GEAR x 1

This tractor has been a nightmare. I've had it just over 3 years now and the dealer has had possession of it more than I have. Only 350 hours due to the number of repairs needed. Now out of warranty and going on 8 weeks for parts is kind of a kick in the ***.

Not good.. Nice tractor to.. I have little patience for things that cost a lot money and are constantly being repaired..

Sorry to hear.....Do you have a New Holland dealer nearby? Maybe they can cross-reference NH parts for it?

I assumed they already did but worth a phone call. Thanks for the suggestion.

I waited something like twenty weeks for a critical hydraulic part from Hydraforce for my Cushman mower. But Deere and Cat had the same wait times. Parts were being made in the U.S.A.

I have a Simplicity ZTR 2500 that's under warranty. First year one of the welds broke on the mower electric lift mechanism. I took it off and welded it myself. Simpler than hauling to a dealer. Then last year one of the ZT2800 transmission hold bars cracked clean in half. I took the bar off and took it to the dealer. They welded it and i put it back on. Broke in 10minutes. Went back and they said bars are on backorder. Two months or longer. Ok fine. Took the bar to my favorite welding guy. He fixed it and also reinforced the areas in question. Hasn't broken since and of course three months later the bars showed up at the dealer. I have a spare stock one now. But still. What did they think I'd do for grass cutting for three months ? Scissors on 4 acres ? Stupid.

Recieved an email today that the parts are shipping on the 29th. I'm hoping that's from a distribution house here in the US and not from overseas.

Day 73.........checked in for an update hoping the tractor might be ready this week only to find out that neither part has shipped. Apparently the ship date given was an estimate only. No new estimates given so I'm in the dark again as to when I might actually get this tractor going. Starting to seriously consider a trade for a new one after all of the trouble with this one and now what's looking like a 3 month fix or more.
