@yogthos JD is a horrible company living off their historic brand name. Everything they ship now is locked down with DRM and service info is locked away.
There is a huge business opportunity for a company like CASE/IH/MF, etc to swoop in and start selling equipment with full service manuals and "open" standards like was common back in the day. JD has burned so many people a documented serviceable machine would make a killing.
I know it wont happen though.
SaaS is the corporate mindset today.
