One side of the Lift Arm Linkage broke on 10-26-16, on my JD EZtrak Z255 mower I purchased a new Linkage Arm from the J D dealer in Perry, Fl. on 6 Oct 2016 and had it installed by a certified mower repair shop.
Today, 8 May 2017 while mowing my front lawn, BOTH sides broke. I immediately went back to the JD dealer and ordered another new linkage are arm. Is the John Deere Co. buying inferior parts from China or just cheap part from other places.
I am almost 70 years old and living on a fixed income. If these problems continue I assure you I will NOT be buying other JD mowers.
I wrote an article to the local paper about my problems.. I seriously do NOT believe the JD Co will do anything, most likely you will not even read this complaint.
