Welcome Randy, I also have a T6 but the narrow row crop version.

The front of the tractor is supported by a heavy leaf spring that crosses over from track frame to track frame under the main frame and hinges in the middle so the tracks will oscillate individually. It is near the rear of the engine and rests on the track frames on a button right behind the front idlers. It is possible the spring is broken, you'll just need to inspect it. You may need to remove the belly pan to see it all.

With the heavy blade and nose guard, it may be normal.

Good luck with it. It looks good in the pic

Dennis

Thanks Dennis. I was hoping the extra weight might be the cause. I am adding a photo of the springs. I haven't been able to get a real good look at them yet to see if one is broken or not.

also the spring dosen"t just sit right on the track frame. there are round wear pads about 3 inches in diameter with a dowle pin that sit under the spring. mine were wore at a real steep angle and had worn through the ends of my leaf spring then it broke off at the edges. then i noted the forward lean of the crawler.

gusbratz znd Dennis, you were correct - there are no wear pads in place.

I also just cleaned out around the rear sprocket and found a very nice red painted stone!! And there is a lot of yellow under the red.
