Please see this thread, are the symptoms similar?Have new 2021 590m with only 14 hrs. There is a loud clanking noise underneath in rear when moving forward or reverse, any ideas?
According to engineering it is normal. Mine went through a 3 week dish with my dealer and John Deere engineering. My personal feelings about it are that they were trying to fix the clutch problems of the past. I think they went way loose on the open belt tension to make sure it doesn’t stick in gear or creep in gear.I suggest you get it in writing from your dealer and have them sign and date it. Also record the noise in the event you have problems once the warranty is up. Protect yourself in the event the worse happens. JD only needs effects of the noise to occur after 12 months and then they are golden.
Just because many do it doesn't make it right or as the engineering team designed it.
Please keep us updated because mine is “normal”. I hope your dealer can figure it out.JD coming to get it today. I found it makes clanking noise even when in park. If I push down accelerator, clanking gets louder. Service manger thinks either the clutch is bad or belt is shredded and slapping plastic belt cover. We will see.
Also, how do change oil on this thing? Looks like I need 4 ramps to get under it to do the job.
