Re: 9400T yes or no

We had one and it was the roughest riding tractor we ever owned. That being said it can pull but stay as far away from anything that even looks wet as you can. If one track slips the other will swing you right into any mudhole you find.

You can turn out easy in a Quad Trac from mud, same as any 4wd tractor.....lots of traction too, but rough.

Re: 9400T yes or no

I have some relatives that even pee green!!! and they are buying MT800b's and trading their 9400t or 9420t. they are so rough that they have done a lot of welding on the radiator frame and in that area due to the viberation/roughness. sooooooooo
NO to a 9400t.

Re: 9400T yes or no

I bleed green, but the early model 9400T's have engine reliability problems. The later models with the Powershift were more reliable. As much as I love green, the Cat/AGCO MT8X5's are a lot more tractor - for a lot more $.

As an accountant for a ultra large farming operation, running ~60 Row Crop Belted tractors and ~20 Heavy Tillage Belted tractors (both JD & Cat), I have noticed that when the hydraulic/transmission/steering components shell out and are replaced, that a second, subsequent hydraulic/transmission/steering repair occurs within a few hundred hours or less of the first breakdown. Frequently, some of the same high priced parts ($1,000+) are replaced. This doesn't happen everytime, but frequently enough that it caught my attention when reviewing Work Orders.

My theory is that during the component failure, metal grindings are pumped throughout these systems. When the initial repair is performed, the mechanic (attempting to keep the cost of the repair to a minimum), only replaces the obviously broken components and leaves the remaining components unchecked, but possibly full of grindings. While it would increase the cost of the initial repair, it would be cheaper in the long run to have the mechanic inspect the other components for contamination while they are easily accessible and thoroughly flush the systems.

Has anyone else experienced this or observed secondary breakdowns after major repairs?

Thanks,

Ron

Re: 9400T yes or no

rdow not to get to side tracked here but to answer your secondary breakdown ? My father -in -law worked for a hyd pump,mter company he was one of there main engeners anyway the did a study on underground mining company when they would lose one of there main hyd pumps if they got say 14000 hours out of it on average they would usually only get half to a third of the hrs as the first and if they put in a third pump they very seldom got more than 1/3 of the orgianlly hrs that were on the orgianal pump. Anyway the study basically came to the conclusion that the pre mature failer was from contamination from the original break down not flushing or replacing all lines tanks ect....
