Deere & Company / John Deere Limited — Selected 2017 1023E and 1025R Compact Utility Tractors
What are the defects?
The Rollover Protective Structure (ROPS) retaining bolts may have been over torqued and stretched, which could cause the bolts to break.
What are the hazards?
If a ROPS retaining bolt is not properly torqued or breaks, the ROPS may not maintain the operator zone of protection during a rollover. This may pose an injury risk to the user.
What should consumers do?
Affected owners will be contacted directly. Owners should stop using the tractors and contact their nearest authorised John Deere dealer to arrange a free repair.
