I bought this tractor used and have no manuals or anything so any help or info would be greatly appreciated. I use it mostly for mowing and everything works ok for awhile, then when I go to lift the mower, it makes a horrible noise and won't lift or goes up very slowly. If I let it sit, it will start working again. This is ok if I'm on even ground but is a pain when I get to the bumpy part and need the mower a little higher. The bucket works fine all the time. Do they have separate hydrolics? Also, I was putting some air in the tires and found them full of water. Is that the way they're supposed to be? I would guess it was to add weight. I'm no mechanic, but if I get some info maybe I won't get ripped off (yes, I am a blonde)

Sorry, I thought the make and model on the post form would show up. It's a Mitsubishi R1500.

Howdy.

Sounds to me like your three-point problem is being caused by low fluid. Not familiar with that particular make and model, but typically, compacts use Transmission-Hydraulic Fluid (THF) and use the transmission as a reservoir to run the hydraulics. There should be a dipstick somewhere to check the level. The problem will get worse as the fluid heats up and thins out.

The "water" in your tires may indeed be straight water, but it's more likely that its a mix of Calcium Chloride (CaCl) that is heavier than straight water, and does not freeze. If you're in freezing country, you might want to check. CaCl, while an inexpensive and efficient way to add weight, and therefore traction, to your machine, is also HIGHLY corrosive. If your inner tube springs a leak, CaCl will raise the devil with your rims, so keep an eye out for leaks.

Maybe you can get a manual through a dealer. A manual will tell you about service intervals and procedures, recommended oils, tire pressures etc.

Liquid fill in rear tires is a common way to ballast a tractor. If you're in a cold area, you probably have an anti-freeze or calcium mixture. Each will make a mess if it leaks on the ground. Nothing may grow for awhile. Tractor tire pressures are ordinarily low compared to cars. Fifteen lbs or less is common. Some tire manufactures have web sites. There may be some information about pressures and loads. High pressures will give you less traction, more soil compaction and a rough ride.

Don't know much about hydrolics myself. The standard advice seems to be check the levels and then change the hydrolic oil and filter. I think it's fairly standard to check the levels WITHOUT screwing in the dipstick/filler caps.

Most tractors hold quite a bit of hydrolic oil. Large buckets are needed. Most tractors also have several drains plugs that need to be undone. You really do need a manual or somebody who knows the tractor.

Leann, it does sound like you are just low on hydraulic fluid. Like the first post says, you should have a dip stick at your transmission. Pull it our and check. If it is low go to someplace like the tractor supply store and purchase 5 gallons of hydraulic fluid, about $12.00 and it fills (generally) in the same in a hole right next to the dip stick. For more information and more specific you might check out the Mitsubishi Tractor board at Yahoo. Good luck....Jerri

I would be surprised if it was only a low fluid problem, especially since you say the loader works fine, since it takes far more fluid to run than the 3pt. does. I would be more inclined to say that the by-pass valve for the 3pt. hydraulics is opening (probably because of a broken spring, wear, or because it has some debris in it) and letting the pressure past it. The horrible noise you are hearing is likely the by-pass valve chattering as it opens and closes.
