 Blown drivetrain ?

Well that lasted quick! My newley purchased 1997 b2400(500hrs) has developed a nasty vibration and noise in the drive train somewhere. Hydro fluid up to par and clean, no noticeable leaks. Unit does not want to move without major pressure on pedal. Still under warranty. I had been out moving a little snow with FEL only used about 1/2 hour. After letting rest for an hour or so condition remained the same.
Anyone else had this trouble?

When was the last time the hydro filters, oil,& suction screen was changed? Might be that simple with luck.

Check that the brakes have not frozen on. With the cold the brakes being on could cause all the problems described.
If there is ice in the brake release etc. it can easily happen. Back to you dedeye.

 Blown drivetrain ?

As luck would have it this occured within 10 feet of my garage. With a little push with my plow truck the tractor was resting comfortably in a tropical environment inside the garage.
I let it sit in front of the furnace for about an hour and thaw but this seemed to fix nothing. It acted like the brakes were stuck but it was almost 50 degrees today and raining. The thing will vibrate you almost off the seat with the slightest touch of the pedal. The sound reminds me of an older international hydro tractor I had when you applied the go pedal with the brake on but the vibration associated with the noise is much worse than one would expect to experience without even moving the tractor.
My fear is that if this is a mechanical problem as opposed to something as simple as a frozen break this may not be discovered untill after my 30 warranty has expired( 12/22)
I put in a call to the shop but don't want to look like an idiot when the guy gets here and hits the break with a hammer and fixes it! I would rather look like an idiot on this board! We're all friends here anyway!
Thanks for the help. I will leave it in tonight and try it in the morning......

According to the salesman the fluids were all changed at 500 hrs. The tractor now has 530 hrs on it. 15 of them are mine! After thinking a little bit about what has been mentioned in another post the difference between the power of my old international vs. the power of this tractor are like night and day therefore the symptoms most likely would be more severe with this unit. Make any sense?

Eric had a good point about the brakes. Double check those as well. Trust me, you won't be the only one who has inadvertently left the brakes on or had the brakes stick. Wink yeah right The loud noise and vibration is indicative of stuck brakes or possibly air in the system. Have yout tried jacking the rear wheels of the tractor up on jack stands and trying the hydro? Might give you a better indication of eliminating the brakes as a problem. If you let the tractor thaw out, that should have eliminated the possibility of water contamination freezing. Might not hurt to try and let some oil out of the sump plug if you can without taking a bath in it to see what comes out. Should be nice clean oil. Sounds like you have had the tractor for about 30 hours? Is the tractor under some kind of warranty?

Have you tried moving the tractor in both two and four wheel drive? Have you tried changing the ranges and feeling for a difference?

Art
I tried 2x4,4x4,High range, Low range with same results.
I am now convinced that something internal has headed west!
It may have a discombobulated scanitctadoink or something!

The durability of this make of tractor has become almost legandary in these parts but I am begining to think that no manufacturer has the right to make a toughness claim of their product untill I have used it for ten minutes without a failure!
Service guy from dealership coming after it today. Thank goodness for warranty!
I will let you know what broke as soon as I find out.
Thanks for input guys.
Dan

Dan, don't go to far yet, things happen. There has to be a reason and chances are it might be simple but with what you have done to test different areas I do believe it is time to have the mechanics work on it. This is where it comes in handy having a close dealer to work with.

I think Eric pegged it, a fairly new machine which sat for a while waiting to go to a new home is the perfect candidate for a bad case of 'stickumus brakes'...

I'd get right to the source and be sure that there is no play in the release direction of travel after releasing the pedal, if there is I would suggest moving the mechanism back & forth until the cows come home, it's the best all round solution I've found to get parts to stay free.

Best of luck.
