 power steering on dk35

the power steering on my dk35 with 1450 loader will not turn when bucket is loaded unless i am moving,and it even does it sometimes in soft soil with no load in bucket.Dealer looked at it and said everything is okay,he did not know how to cure the problem. has anyone else had the same problem or know a solution. great tractor other than that.

My DK 35 on occasion will do the same thing(only when at a dead stop and I can hear hydraulic sound like a relief valve),move just a couple inches and it will steer very easily again !
Its never been anything that bothered me enough to worry about.Only like you said in soft dirt or with a the bucket loaded and only a a complete stop.

That sounds like the PS on my Ford 1710. The hydraulics are built into the steering sector and are fed from a priority valve from a single hydraulic pump. It's better to call theses designs 'power assisted' steering since they're a bit lacking in power.

My system does have a pressure relief valve that is adjustable and the steering would be weak if the relief valve setting is low. Unfortunately I have I'd have to get an outrageously expensive special fitting to adjust it myself. The wear steering isn't enough of an aggravation for me to get serious and a relief valve test is waiting till the tractor's next trip to the dealer. My tractor has a steering damper and taking it off may help the steering.

If the DK has turf tires that will make the steering worse. Higher tire pressures will make the steering easier but also may make 4wd hard to disengage. Higher pressures when doing heavy loader work will help. Sometimes if I'm stopped with the wheels cramped I lift the front with the loader to straighten the wheels. Occasionally when doing heavy loader work that requires tight turns when loaded I help it with some brake steering. There are ways to get along with gimpy PS.

thanks for the info glad to hear from someone else with same situation i think i might try to put some heavier counterbalance on the rear temporarily and try that. the manual says supposed to have 750 pounds. i just have a boxblade now. if i wasnt working in such a tight area the steering might not be such a problem for me.

I forgot about 3ph weight. When I'm doing heavy loader work, my 750-lbs. box scraper is almost always on and if not then a 3ph forklift that's almost as heavy is. I guess it's more of a permanent solution for me. I don't think some of these mid-80's PS systems were designed for tractors equipped with loaders and turf tires, but my PS may not be working quite up to par either.

Tom, you are right the mid eighties tractors are not like those built today and the seventies were that much worse. Many of the older chassis redo's still have the problem.
