 4610 ehydro pedal locations

I took delivery of my new 4610 with back blade and MX6 cutter (won't be using that until the snow melts!) last week and I have a question about the pedals. I got the ehydro and the pedals seem backwards to me, with the back pedal on the right (outside) and the forward pedal on the left (inside). I find myself constantly pushing the wrong pedal. In my befuddled mind the forward pedal should be on the right where the excelerator would be in a car. The only thing I can figure is that when backing and using attachments I'm be turned in the seat and the outside pedal will be easier to reach? By the way, I love the tractor and while pushing snow is OK I can hardly wait for Spring!

I had the same thoughts as you, Ken. However, it was explained to me that the forward pedal is closer to you for comfort's sake. The theory is that if you are constantly stretching to reach the outside pedal, you could strain muscles in your leg. I'm short, so it made sense to me.

Nice tractor, very nice. You'll get used to it. The only problem I had with my 4310 ehydro, is that I accidentally pushed both pedals simultaneously while turned around looking backwards. I was wearing big boots at the time that didn't give much feel. I did however get used to it. My wife can drive it without any problems and she has never driven any equipment.
Good Luck, and if you live way up north, please shut the window. I'm feeling a draft down here in TX.
Kyle

The wrong pedal problem likely will go away. We all adapt to our tractors since the tractors can't adapt to us. In the meantime I'd take some care. Somebody here told about putting himself and tractor over a steep bank with the wrong pedal thing.

The problem is me. Average low temps here are 0F this time of year. It will get better for you when I click on the 'X' in the upper right corner.

To Jack's point, I'm 6'4" tall. May well be part of the problem. I've already thought about how to move the seat farther back than the factory installation. I'm sure I'll get used to the pedals. More snow due today, tonight, and tomorrow so I'll get more opportunity to practice! I'll close the door tight when I go out Kyle so y'all don't get chilly in Texas! Thanks for the good thoughts.

I think it mostly just rains in Texas.

Lately it has been raining spaceship parts and bodies.

God bless the brave souls who fly those contraptions into space.

The explosion woke me out of a sound sleep last saturday, and it still sends shivers down my spine.

Think I will stay down here and try to figger out the pedals on my tractor. It is safer.

That must have been some explosion
I can't believe that there were body parts to be found.
They were brave people

I got the pedals figured. What I'm confused about is which hydraulic oil to use. According to the chart (for my climate) in the Owner's Manual, I should use Hy-Guard. According to the dealer, I should use Low Viscosity Hy-Guard.

I even emailed JD and all they would tell me was "I would recommend following the advice of your JD dealer. Generally speaking, they are your best source for product information as well as parts & services. They have the knowledge, training, experience and resources to help and advise you."

If that's the case, why print a chart in the OM?

I'll bet Deere has that message under the F1 key.

At least they respond. That is more than I can say for Kubota.

Billy, have you checked Wally world? They have a generic hydro fluid that meets Deere specs and is priced right. Might be an answer.

Billy, re. hydro oil. I have 4200 HST, and below the air temp. chart in my manual it states "John Deere Low Viscosity HY-GARD..... is recommended. Standard John Deere HY-GARD.....may also be used." The next paragraph OK's other oils if they meet JD specs. My dealer says low visc should be used, and he gave me a free gallon of it. Ken
