I am currently having my mahindra 1526 shuttle shift dry clutch tractor inspected by a warrantee service center and they are telling me that the clutch is not covered under the 7 year warranty. I have 102.7 hours on it and the clutch is slipping so bad that i had to drive it back home 1/4 mile in 1st gear low range gust to get it to move. I grew up driving tractors with a dry clutch so i am used to the way you treat them by not riding the clutch pedal and taking care when engaging it. The manager asked me if the clutch ever stuck and yes it did on several occasions and i had to get it rolling, throw it into 2nd or 3rd gear and drive it is a circle gunning the engine to load the clutch disc while pressing the pedal down for about 5 minutes to break it loose. I tried the lock bail on the pedal but it did not disengage the clutch enough to keep it from sticking and after a couple times of doing this, the pedal felt soft like there wasn't as much push back from the springs on the pressure plate. That being said, the service center is saying that i am to blame for the clutch wear and to repair it is totally my expense, parts and labor. My tractor is a 2018 model and has been great up to this point but now is useless. I see many posts on this issue and i am seeing and also told by the service manager that water gets into the housings and starts this issue. The gear and clutch levers come into the side of the transmission housing so i don't see how water could get into the clutch housing. Factory defect? I don't feel that this is my fault and wonder what recourse i have going forward to get it fixed other than doing it myself and eating the cost and down time. Anyone else having this issue dealing with Mahindra on a failed dry clutch so early and not warranteed? What have you found out? Lemon laws? I am currently waiting to pick up my tractor from the service center, unrepaired and researching clutch replacement parts. Not sure if factory parts will last so looking at aftermarket reliability also before beginning this process. Any input would be appreciated, Thanks.
