 kubota steering problem

I haven't heard of this one before so I'm not going to be much help.

I do know that many newer power steering systems are servo types. They are purely hydraulic and there isn't a direct mechanical link between the steering wheel and the front tires. In effect, the steering wheels tells the system which direction you want to turn, how much and for how long. At least in theory it's entirely possible for the sensing system to be 'confused.'

This sort of thing isn't something owners should have to deal with. If it's the sort of thing that happens at random widely spaced intervals I have some sympathy for a dealer tech who maybe can't get it to happen when they test it. However, dealers are supposed to have access to factory tech support for such problems. Even if the tractor isn't under warranty a tractor the steers the wrong way becomes a safety issue and it's to the manufacture's interest to solve it. I'd be tempted to make a home video of the steering wheel going one way and the tires the other and make a copy for the dealer. It'd be a rare dealer who wouldn't get excited at some hard documentation and go to his factor rep for a solution.

It has to be in the hand pump. If everything else is working it is all that it can be as otherwise nothing else would work right or they would quit when the steering did. The steering cylinder would work the same all the time or most nearly so there is only one place to go for the most part. To bad it doesn't do it all the time, makes a nicer warrantee for Kubota.
