And I am not saying I won't run into that with mine. But everything that I had him look up was available within a week. I hung a hydraulic steering hose on stump last week and he could've had one to me in 3 days. I ended up having one made cheaper than the OEM one, but nevertheless it was available pretty quick.As a part time mechanic I can tell you all the parts I've needed for the two LS tractors I've had apart have been a lot longer than a week. One was down almost 8 weeks waiting on some simple items.
I'm NH guy and wrench on a lot of them both mine and customers and rarely wait a week for anything. Just ordered planetary gears, bearings, seals, king pins, etc on Monday am, had parts today (Wednesday) and tractor is back in the field currently.
I think with the LS stuff, the dealer makes all the difference. I know LS has overnighted multiple parts to the dealer here before to keep customers going. The tractor that I own apparently had a weak point in the front planetaries. One went down and LS had an upgraded version for it. The guy that owned it (the guy that owns the dealership) then bought one side and LS sent him both.
Again, I know the verdict is still out on whether or not parts can be had quickly and long term. I am trusting what the dealer here has told me.
