    Is there anyone who knows of a good excavator problem consultant that would come to job site and find a problem of a function. We have a dr ex but it says we don"t have a problem. We have an idle and travel problem. We live near Logansport indiana.

    Most of the big name dealers (Cat, Deere, Case) should have a service truck if not 2 or 3, I'm surprised your deere dealer can't take a look at it seeing as though Deere and Hitachi machines are more or less the same.

    JD dealer said they work on JD only. I told them Hitichi was the same as JD and he said not quite and I told him the only difference was the engines.

    They know the difference, it's stamped on the side of the cab. Probably just a brand thing, and they won't cross brands.

    How old of a machine are you working on? Software is simply saying there's no code? Kinda strange a Deere dealer won't work on it.
