How Do I Adjust My Tractor’s Brake Pedal?

We want to help you adjust your tractor’s brake pedal.

If you do not feel that you understand these steps, or can perform them safely, consult your tractor dealer or local mechanic. Also always consult your tractor owner’s manual for model-specific information.

Time to get started.


· To adjust your tractor’s brake pedal.

1. Park the tractor safely and securely.

2. Shut off the engine.

Place chocks (A, Fig. 1) on each driving direction of the front and rear wheels.

3. Check all the tires safely and securely.

4. Engage the parking brake.

5. Confirm that the parking brake lock holder is surely applied and that the parking brake lock lever is locked securely.

6. Periodically clean and apply oil to prevent dust or rust that could interfere with its proper operation.

7. Remove the rear right wheel.

8. Disengage the parking brake.

9. Adjust the brake pedal’s free play.

· Loosen the lock nut (A, Fig. 2).
