Friend has a JD 5055M , maybe two years old. Trying to run a chipper but tractor cuts off as soon as he leaves the seat. Really hard to chip that way. Any suggestions? Thanks
My 5075 just beeps but it is a 2013 so I figured they changed something in the design.What does your 5075 do? My 5100E beeps at me but everything stays running when I get out. If it is a frequent need, I would think you could make a bypass switch and have it permanently mounted to make it easy to use, easy to make things safe for others again.
Could be the switch needs to be replaced. They do go bad on occasion. 50 lb feed sack should work too. The safety Nazis don’t live in the real world. I was trying to back something up with one of my MX Maxxums a while back. Couldn’t see something for some reason so got up off the seat so I could see better. Tractor stops moving. GRRRRRRRRR!!Sand bag no enough weight according to him, sometimes his wife has to bounce on the seat to get it to work. I haven’t looked at it so don’t know what the switch looks like. The jumper with a switch to return the safety system sounds like an idea to pursue
The idea of most safety stuff is sound--the implementation usually stinks because it appears to be designed as an after-thought--kinda "Oh, BTW, we don't want ..... to happen."The majority of machines safety circuits are a negative logic. Make or purchase a wire with two male spade terminals on each end. Access the seat presence switch by raising the seat. Unplug the switch and insert the spaded wire into each side of the connector (not the switch).
Warning The switch is there for a reason. By defeating the presence switch the tractor will be able to move when the operator is NOT on the seat. That can be deadly dangerous real quick.
