Question about John Deere 40 In. Aerator-spreader

Open Question

The very first time I used my John Deere 40 inch aerator-spreader (buyers remorse) the weight tray jumped off of the hopper assembly pin and it crashed into the hopper and damaged the moving part that churns the seed/fertilizer that goes into the hopper. How do I fix my aerator-spreader and modify it so the weight tray will stay in place once it gets repaired?

If the wheels turn( that is you can push the spreader easily) but the vertical shaft that spins the broadcasting plate doesn't, seems like the gears connecting the axle to that vertical shaft are worn; but if the wheels just slide along the gropund without turning then it would seem something right under the bin is keeping the verical shaft from turning. But I'm NOT an expert; I'm looking for an answer myself,

Since I didn't have a manul, I downloaded one from Scott's and used that to calibrate the spreader which was out of calibration.

The engine needs air, so be sure the air filter is clean. If it is not, replace it.

The engine needs spark. Replace the spark plug and be sure that the battery has a complete charge.

The engine needs good fuel so be sure the gas is newly purchased, not gas that has been sitting around for months.

I have john deer sabre 18 horse i have a snow blade but cant get on right



Hello,

My name is Dane and I'll try to help you with your problem. I have given you the basic instructions here for mounting most john deere snow blades.


Here is a link to the parts diagram for the blade too.

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Sabre-john-deere-Parts/Riding-mower-tractor-Parts/Model-15538G/1828/1509200/10060752/00034


You need to remove the mower deck from the machine, and you may have to remove the front bumper as well.

First, install the mounting brackets on the tractor. Align the holes in each mounting bracket with the holes in the tractor frame. Install using the kit that comes with the mounting bracket. Don't tighten this yet.


Next you should install the pivot support. Insert the pins on the right and left hitch plates into the notches on the mounting brackets. Install the pins and tighten the screws on those mounting brackets now.


Next you should Install the blade. Align the holes in the pivot support with the second holes from the end of the push channel assembly. Insert the channel pin and washer and secure with the spring locking pin.


Install the lift handle. Slide the lift handle rod into the end hole in the push channel assembly. Insert the lift link pin in the pivot support bracket into the lift handle rod. Add the washers and locking pin.


Now, Iistall the blade pivot rod. Either end of the blade pivot rod goes through the blade pivot shaft. The other end goes through the lift handle tube. Secure both ends with locking pins.


Lubricate the lift handle rods and pivot points.


Install the rear tire chains and wheel weights.


I hope I've helped. If you found this information useful, please leave feedback as deserved. Thanks! Dane

Error code


Yes it can be fixed, just have to fond out if a wire got broken or disconnected. The control may have gone bad , but it doesnt happen very often.

Bushings


They don't have to be made by the same company that made the aerator. Take one bushing off and visit Ace or Home Depot. I would replace them all at the same time. But all you need to do is find the physical match and go from there.
