When going up a hill and the engine conks out you go sailing to the bottom when you shift into neutral to restart it.

Really scary!

Has this ever happened to you?

AV8R
====================
Some times when going forward when I hit the pedal to back up
it will belch a puff or 2 of black smoke and sputter a time or two then resume running fine.

However a couple of times it didn't recover but conked out instead.

If this is happening, you are running WWAAYY to low throttle setting. Low RPM operation can damage your hydro pump. (Especially on a hill situation) There are many threads on this topic.

Sometimes it's hard to remember when being used to driving cars and trucks that when you need more power we all push the gas petal down further. When running a hydro you have to do the oposite and not push it down so far so the engine can gain RPM and proceed up the hill. I've often found that it is best to get into a lower range(gear) before getting on a hill.

I've had the engine almost conk out when I bounce or shift position in the seat - even with my seatbelt on. I know this is caused by the safty cutout. I've also had my BX23 suddenly roll off my tilted trailer when I shift into neutral to start it up. The brake seems to be pretty useless. I have to remember to start the engine THEN tip the trailer bed.

1*This is pretty dumb to have to basicaly release the brake in order to start the motor.
2*Why don't they have a foot pedal brake like in a car that you can step on to hold the tractor when you start the motor?
Netural should lock the transmission just like park does in a car.
3*This works ok with a trailer, but you can't tilt a hill.

lbrown59,

The conditions you describe have another name for this and you need to set the rpms and/or conditions so the engine does not stall out.

What you are doing is call lugging the engine and diesel especially do not like to be lugged or loaded down beyond a certain point. They can carry a good bit more load than a comparable gas engine but when loaded to the point of stalling; this can damage the engine and cause unusual and excessive bearing wear and just plain old unneeded wear and tear on the engine.

Try to keep the rpms up in a range that allows the engine to recover easily and not get lugged down to a stall.

There is a pedal right over the treddel pedal which controls the brake. On the left side is the brake-lock for Parking. It is strong enough to hold the tractor in neutral on a hill or tilted trailer.
