 Three point hitch

I am new to the tractor world. I bought a used L3300 with FEL and am waiting for my manual to come in, but have a few questions. The three point hitch lowers very slow without a load, is this normal? I also have an idiot light that stays on most of the time. It's orange with a loop to loop sign. What is this, should it be on or off?
Thanks to all who respond.

I've never had a Kubota but it probably has an adjustment for the rate of drop on the 3-point hitch. On my JD it is a knob located at the base of the seat. If you turn it all the way one direction it stops dropping completely, and intermediate positions control the rate of drop.

The orange light with the loop is likely the glow plugs. Why they are remaining on? Could be bad thermostat switch?

 Three point hitch

I recently purchased an L3300 kubota. The glow plug light does not light up when I turn the key forward. Does anyone have any ideas for me to check. I am trying to locate a service manual in the meantime.

Thanks

I dont have a Kubota but my key works both ways for the glow plugs. Right or left. Foward or backwards. Do you have a diesel.

I have a John Deere and I have to turn and push the key in to get the glow plugs to come on.

 Three point hitch

As to your liff lowering slow with no load it could be what a matter of what you consider to be slow. With no weight on it will lower slower. There is a knob to adjust the speed with which it lowers. Under the seat, between your legs. I suggest you do this with your load and may find it varies some from cold hyd oil to hot oil.

Light is glow plugs. Why it is on I have no idea but if they are remaining I don't think they will last long.

As how to activate the glow plugs on Kubota, I don't have the same model this was asked on but on my CUT you turn the switch to past the run postion, towards the start postion. You should "feel" a place in there where you must hold it just like in starting postion. THat should operate your glow plugs with the orange light.

On my CUT I have to hold that for about 5 seconds if the motor is cold regardless of the temp. (The lowest I run this tractor in is about 45 degrees.)
