 4310 hydro won't move?

I bought a new 4310 loaded with everything in 2003. When it was new I had an intermittent problem. When I stepped on the hydro pedals it wouldn't move. The dealer said they reprogrammed the computer. Does this make sense?

Now the problem is back and the dealer doesn't want to hear about it. It's dangerous when it happens at the wrong time. Is this a common problem?

Another problem I have had since new is the dash glass has some kind of spray on the inside that clouds up when hot. It looks like JD sprayed it with something before assembly because when it gets cloudy it looks like it's dripping (or running) upwards. The dealer was supposed to order me new glass. I kept calling them and they never got it. The dealer has a new owner and supposedly lost the records. Now I'm screwed.

That's why I bought the new Kubota ZG23 zero turn mower from another dealer. The problems with that are posted under the Kubota section.

I liked the reliability of my old JD1050 better.

 4310 hydro won't move?

I also bought my 4310 in 2003, just came off warranty in March. I had thought I was having problems with pedals and tractor not moving but, after posting in this forum, I am now convinced I was usually either off balance in my seat or I accidentally pressed both pedals simultaneously. It still may happen on rare occasion but it is not often enough to be a problem. The tractor always moves on the second attempt.

I have had no problem with the glass, but I keep the tractor garaged most of the time. My only (minor) complaint with my 4310 hydro is that it creeps on hills when stopped without using brake. I have to use the parking brake which requires a big kick to fully engage (which my wife can't do) to keep it perfectly stationary.

Overall I am extremely happy with this tractor so far.

IIRC the hesitancy has been mentioned here before, but not in a very long time. You might try searching the archives. My 4310 is always garaged and also has a fogged instrument glass. JD knows about this problem and has a kit to fix it. It's covered under warranty, but it sounds like your dealer is a big problem. Bad dealers can make life miserable and expensive.

After hitting send on the last post I recalled that one fix for ehydro hesitancy was to recalibrate the pedals to the transmission servos. If you don't get satisfaction with your dealer you might try respectfully escalating to the JD rep. It sounds like you were caught in the middle of a dealer issue.

Thanks for the info. I'll get over to the JD dealer with my serial number and see if they intend to fix the problems or not.

As far as dealers and manufacturers I think I jumped out of the frying pan and into the fire by buying an orange zero turn mower rather than a green one. Wink yeah right

Looks like the foggy glass issue is perhaps a carry over from the JD4300 days, mine does it too and I have had it out and dried it with a hair dryer till it was toasty warm and should have had no water in it. Its always garaged as well and never sees wet weather.

Mine isn't a water problem. It's something that JD sprayed on the inside of the glass... probably a defogging compound. It only appears when the tractor is hot. My 4310 has never been kept outside. I don't even think it's been out in anything other than light rain. Although it does do a lot of snow removal here south of Buffalo in the winter.

I mentioned fogging of the instrument glass on my machine but you're right, it's sort of like a blueish gray film that is definitely visible when hot. There's no visible liquid condensation. The dealer is coming out sometime in the next week or two to fix. I'll post back on what is discovered.

The dealer was in the area today and stopped by to fix the fogged instrument glass on my 4310. It took him about half an hour. He said the problem isn't one of condensation, but rather the gray film that shows up in hot weather. The fix is installation of a new instrument lense with a different anti-fog coating inside the glass. He said they have to be careful not to touch the inside of the glass during installation or the coating is ruined. What did they do in the old days with no coatings? Oh, I remember. The instruments were always full of condensation!

My 4300 does that foggy crap too and here I thought it was my problem with too much humidity, but none of my older stuff ever does it. Now I know it is like all the other glitches, an American lack of R&D like usual.
