    John Deer LA105 BRAKES

    My John Deer LA105 is 3 years old and has about 150 hours. The foot brake will not stop the mower and the parking brake will not hold the mower. I can push it with the parking brake on. I adjusted the rod with the spring and had not results. Is there another adjustment or is it time to take it to the Dealer.

    Further research revealed that the brake disk and pads are inside the transaxle. A seal had gone bad and oil got on the brake pads. The mower is now at the John Deer Dealer for who knows how long and how much $$$$.

    This brake problem was repaired by the dealer and worked fine for about 35 hours. Then the brake started to get hot. I backed the brake adjustment off and freed up the brake. I have backed the adjustment off 3 times now because of the brakes getting hot. It will go for about 15-20 hours between adjustments. Why is the brake adjustment not holding? It is acting just the opposite of what it should do.

    A guy here seems to have had a similar issue with his 105. It was a simple assembly issue. Check it out.
