Day three for the 1220 I purchased this week and I am wondering if the tractor has a transmission issue?
When I brought the tractor home I topped off the transmission with the recommended oil. It was a little low - but didn't take the much to fill it. I drove the tractor the day I bought it an every thing seemed fine - shifted into all gears in both high and low with no issues.
I lent the tractor to my neighbor yesterday so he could haul some wood with it. Today when driving the tractor I found the tractor to be occasionally surging or bucking. This happened in different gears, The engine was running well and not the cause from what I could tell. My neighbor said he experienced the same thing as well.
Hopefully I didn't get a lemon! Any advice/input as to what might be going on would be appreciated.
I searched the forum and found some parts catalogues, for my 1220 as well as publications on the transmission, which are great resources. I am going to attempt to adjust the axle end play as suggested.
