 John deere 4720 Tractor Hydraulic Trouble

I have a 2007 4720 with about 450hrs on it. After about an hour of use when it is at operating temp, the power steering starts to jerk like a car with low steering fluid. awhile later the tractor will start surging and jerking. even later the impliments will start to not work and the tractor won't even pull itself. I bought the tractor new. I have no idea what is going on. any help is greatly appreciated..

When is the last time you changed the hydraulic fluid and filters?

Is there air/water in the hydraulic fluid?

Most hydro tractors recommend that you change fluid and filters at 50 hours and then every 300 hours.

The operators manual that came with the machine should show you where the drain plug and fill locations are.

I would start with this first and use only the recommended fluid from Deere so you can eliminate using the wrong off brand issue.

Here is a link to the documentation on the John Deere site:
