Customer Question
I have a jd...

I have a jd 720 haybine, while mowing today the reel stopped i got off and check it and could not move the reel. i then got under the machine and eventually moved the rolls, the reel started again and mowed for a while then stopped solid again. i moved the rolls and i t eventually started again. i then found 1 of the springs on the right side was broken . i think the bearings are out on thr top roll does this make sense!

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the complete model and serial number of your machine?

S # e00720x100846 model 720-3.om skl mc

Hi Im Chad and i will be helping you today but first i want to thank you for using just answer and i appreciate you coming to our platform to have your questions answered.

Yes it does make sense its probably turning until the bearings get hot and seize up and the belt will start slipping on the reel be careful or you will burn your belt up. Sometimes they will turn until you start mowing and then once it gets a load on it and heats up then it will stop. Check and see if your bearings are getting hot after running for a minute.also sometimes you can visually inspect them and see if  they are coming apart and the reel has dropped down just a little and check and see if its slipping the belt its possible that the problem is in the tractor unless the pto shaft is still turning when the reel stops I look forward to hearing back from you.
