Hey guys, just got a quote for park brake caliper assembly of $290.00 form Deere. Just my pads are toast! Vehicle pads cost less. Any way to fix them without paying above cost?

Have you checked online at Green Farm Parts- use discount code GTT or Green Parts Store ?

search the JD part number online. You might find something nonJD that will work. I know there are solutions for the brakes but not certain with the e-brake.

Post back what you find as others are likely to run into the same problem and want to save a few $'s.

Good luck!

I am looking at the Polaris razor e brake pads they look identical with the exception the inner pad does not have rubber grommets that ride on the sleeves probably to stop rattles. I am about to purchase a pair for my 2008 620I and try them.there are several YouTube videos on modifying car pads for a polaris nothing for a gator, but all the assemblies look identical (sure its a secret we should know) oh the Polaris pads on eBay are $20 not $87

I broke down and paid the piper. I didn’t have time to modify or make something work.
