Hi all,

Mine can't keep the windshield open anymore - have you tried to replace them and if yes, did you buy them from JD or did you find better / cheaper ones? The JD part number is VGA 12145.

Thank you.

Good timing as I just posed this question and found an answer. Part number PM3214E32-W on lift support depot website. Not an exact fit (slightly stronger and the eyelets are a bit shorter but they work all the same. 28 each and mine qualified for free shipping.

Hi MichaelB,

Thank you for your reply – much appreciated. I’m in the EU, though, so I feared shipping from your supplier would be quite expensive and decided to try finding them within the EU. First I tried my local JD dealer and they told me I would need two set at USD 130 each. Pretty steep, and I think a JD set contains all the hardware for both ends of the springs, which I did not need, so I measured mine and found a place to buy the springs only at the cost of USD 45 each, all included. I have mounted them and it works fine.

Here’s a link to the ones I ordered: BE-8-120-100-T (industrial-springs.com)

And for those who want’s to look other places for them, here’s the specs:

Font Trigger Gun barrel Parallel Number


Best,

Paul
