Identifying features

What are the defects?

The front cab support bolts were not torqued to specification, which may cause them to break, loosen, or fall out of place, which may cause the cab to detach.

What are the hazards?

If the cab support bolts fail, the cab may fail to protect the operator from injury in the event of a rollover.

What should consumers do?

John Deere will contact all registered owners in writing. Any consumers with affected vehicles should contact their nearest John Deere dealer to arrange for the inspection and repair, free of charge.
