I've seen several (documented) stories and pictures of broken Jinma tractors outlining poor castings. I thought the company had come along pretty far with working those problems out and strengthining the base frames.
Do you have any warranty and does the company have any intentions of helping you replace the damaaged frame?
I've abused my John Deere a few times and feel fortunate to not have destroyed something. Seeing your situation should serve as a warning to take care of your stuff, and realize that they aren't bulletproof! GH54, welcome aboard and best of luck to you with your situation. we feel your pain!
Thanyou to you all!
The breakdown happened during using the FEL with the BH mounted on 3-point. The dealer has fixed the damage and taken the costs. It took him about 3 mounth to get a new gearbox and have the tractor repaird. The tractor was about 6 mounth old and had 50 hours on the meter when the damage happend. I think this tractor should have FEL and BH with own frames.
I think you are very fortunate that your dealer repaired the tractor.
We have heard about Jinma tractors breaking and little or NO help from other owners. Apparently, the 254, when combined with the FEL and Back Hoe are significantly more weight/strain than the tractor can handle...
I would most certainly look into the design and installation of a subframe to prevent future failures. Good luck!
