 How do you brake steer with hydro trans?

Having never used a hydrostatic tranny, I'm wondering how to brake steer when moving forward. Thanks,Bill

Unless you're a contortionist, it's very difficult to use the brakes for turning with the hydro. Of course, if you have the "cruise control" or speed set device in use, then you can do it. I think most of us just don't find it necessary to turn that short since it's so quick and easy to maneuver forward and backward with the hydro.

If you had a John Deere 4000 series you would be able to brake steer with out any problem. The John Deere Hydros have the turning brakes on the left side & a master brake pedal on the right side. It works great. Chris

 How do you brake steer with hydro trans?

A compact 4WD does not need to be "brake steered." As explained to me and demonstrated, the bigger 2WD farm tractors under load with less weight on the front tires needed the brakes TO steer. Little compacts gain almost nothing with brake steering and some dealers question why they are equipped in the first place. I haven't needed mine yet!

I Have a 4400hst. I use my steering brakes often enough that I am glad I can. Usually it is when needing to make a tight turn while grading. Most often used in the confines of the shed where all the equipment make manuvering a little difficult. Never use it while mowing the yard. Sometimes when grading on steep banks to hold the unit in a straight line without the front wheels having to oversteer and cause ruts.

Klay, I would have to disagree with whether brake steering is needed on a compact. I have been doing a lot of loader work in a wooded area shuffling logs around. I don't have hydro, only a sync shift. I am constantly brake steering in lower gears in order to tuck this timber in here and there. Not having a hydro tranny, it means not having to shift to back up one more time and is a big time saver. Not to mention that sometimes it's the only way to accomplish a task with a 20' log on the forks. So, even if I bought a hydro machine for this type of work, it better allow me to brake steer. In this senario turning radius is everything and I can almost turn on a dime for short distances if needed. Very often the rear will still want to push the front tires over sideways as I have my 1070 well ballasted in the back. In this case, a little brake action gets everthing moving in the right direction to start with.

I also use turn brakes on my 855, mainly while discing and plowing, turning 90* to a 360* turn I find it very handy & necessary at times, but I've been told it adds more shaveings in the hydro sreen.

 How do you brake steer with hydro trans?

Now you guys got me wonderin' what the ACTUAL differance is. I took my 2710 (W/ R-4's)on my hard packed gravel drive and just turned right for 360*. I had close to 6 foot ID circle. Then the same with full right brake, the right rear tire stayed locked but got pulled slightly for a 2 foot ID circle. For the fun of it I tried it in 4WD with the same results. With the looks of the drive I would not want to try that on my lawn!! Can anyone pivit on the braked tire?

Brake steering? How do you say...Supersteer!

NH's so equipped will actually turn around in less than their own length.

Some of you evidently have not used a hydro tractor in a garden, mud or gravel. You may think you don't need to break and turn because you can't. With the JD 4400 the left and right brakes are on the left allowing for breaking and turning. I can out turn a supersteer in low traction. This was the main thing I did not like about the New Holland tractors and I am a long time Ford fan. Any farmer would laugh if you told him a tractor would not brake and turn.
