Vico 329091 160 Fendt 716 either

Re: Fendt 716
How could this happen?
Re: Fendt 716
the bearing probably broke, doesn't look good though
Re: Fendt 716
The shaft has sheared. My MF7490 has the same parts and I
had already noted that there is no obvious lubrication to
the cross-shaft but there are single plastic hole fillers
fitted where you would think grease nipples should be fitted
at each end of the cast housing.

There are no grease nipples to the horizontal lift ram
bearings either. The front end is no problem because they
only move in a short ark but the back ones, which are part
of the lop-sided bell crank in the picture but hidden at the
back of it, have a large amount of movement. They have some
sort of fibre material as either spacers or bearing material
but [let's just say that] I would be happier with grease

Re: Fendt 716
I've owned Deere and they have their problems, including
excess wear of the cross shaft and failure of the bearings
and spline failure at just the same region that that shaft
broke on the Fendt.
Owners of newer Deere will know that they have dropped back
in reliability terms.
All brands sometimes launch new models that are not so good.
