G'DAY all
I am helping a friend who owns a DB 880 3 cylinder tractor. It has been sitting idle for about 4 years and recently we have been getting it back into working order. Problem now is the 3 point linkage will lift to full height but when we try lifting a load we can only get less than half lift. Transmission oil level was down so topped up to full mark, no change in lift height under load. Is there a seperate oil reservoir for the 3 point hitch? Seems like low oil level to me. Also there is a control marked "DEPTH/HEIGHT" any help with this would be appreciated thanks Pete

If the DB880 has been sitting 4 years,I would drain the Hydraulic oil,pour 6 gallon of diesel fuel in transmission in case engage PTO and let run a few minutes ,drain and refill with new Oil.
I have done this and many time it will work better. Good Luck.
An 880 David Brown is a Great Tractor Just need to store inside because if it is outside water will drain around gear sticks into Transmission and cause the Pump to go out. ....
