I am looking for a second hand John deere 3040 /3050, but i understand that the brakes can break up and wreck the tractors transmission and hydraulics.
Is it possible to tell if this is happening - ie noises etc before i buy?? how do i tell?
Also was this problem rectified at any stage?
It makes you wonder what fool invented oil cooled brakes and put them deep inside the transmission, still you know who pays when it goes wrong!
Thanks for your advice.
