 4310 tilt sterring wheel broken

Poor desgin on the plastic steerring wheel, The lever that you push forward and pull back to tilt is stuck. The wheel wont budge. Poor design on this , only 10 hours.

Also when I back into my garage with the loader on and low rpms the thing seems to slip, doesnt seem to have power. The garage has a slight lit on the concrete so the front tire must get hung upo a bit, but we are only talking three inches. In four its fin, more rpms its fine. This is when I have the loader on the front no hoe on or ballast.

Suggestions on either issue appreciated.

The dealer probably has a solution for the steering wheel.

I'm thinking that the description of backing into the garage may be normal operation. As I understand, itís in 2wd at low rpm and low speed, the front tires won't go over a concrete lip and the rear wheels spin. I assume the tractor has HST and the tires aren't loaded.

I'd think of it as a leverage problem. To go over a bump, enough work has to be done to lift the weight that's on the front axles the vertical distance of the bump. That work can be done over a short or a long time. The small diameter of the front tires in combination with a vertical edge on a lip means that the work has to be done with a lot of force over a short time--it's almost a vertical lift. Meanwhile, rear tires do not have a lot of traction with a loader mounted and little rear weight. If the rear wheels aren't actually spinning, HST pumps may not produce much pressure very low rpm's and the TX may be stalling.

I have gears and use my lowest range when maneuvering in sheds so I can keep the ground speed low and the rpm up. Low range with a HST probably works similarly. In addition, 4wd does work wonders, and I'm often surprised at how little traction there can be on the back wheels going down hills, without proper ballast etc.

Go with the Boomers, there is to much electric crap on those new Deeres! They are trying to make them so us poor old boys can't work on them! Following along with the trend of new cars. Good Luck Jim!
