I have had this tractor since April of this year. I also have a loader and mower deck, purchased at the same time.

I have experienced frequent problems with the loader valve, it has been replaced twice. The bucket now will not dump right. It goes half way, then stops, and you have to keep pushing the lever over to dump to get it to dump all the way out.

It got so it would not spin the tires under a heavier load. My local dealer changed the proportion valve, and it is still not right. Is this a common problem with this particular model?

The tractor only has 90 hours on it. Most of which are mowing the yard.

Stickman, I have a GC2300 w/ FEL also. I only have about 30 hours on it, but I just finished putting in some drainage on one of my roads and (so far) I haven't experienced what you have with your loader. Hope you can get this resolved; it seems like a pretty nice little tractor. Good luck. ....

Mine won't be too helpful a comment since I'm saying that there's a possibility what you describe is normal operation for quite a few different tractors--it's still aggravation though.

Loaders that pause half way through a dump usually don't have a fast dump feature. The load expels oil from the loader faster than the pump can deliver it. The load dumps most of its weight and then pauses until the pump catches up. Increasing engine rpm reduces the pause. I'm a gear head myself but I think I recall that some HST tractors just don't spin the wheels in high range. If that's what's going on somebody more familiar with HST's might comment on how common the problem is. ....
