 JD 4310 Issues

I just bought a 4310 with a 430 loader and a LX5 mower.

I am used to a 2 stage clutch which engaged/disengaged the rear pto. On the 4310 when I engage the pto (at idle) I get a "bang" when the mower engages. This seems pretty violent by design (the previous owner bought shear pins by the dozen). And way to make this better?

Also the controls to the 430 loader are way too sensitive. Push the lever foward just a bit, and the bucket comes crashing down. I have to baby the lever to get a normal drop rate. It will be near impossible to control the loader when the tractor is in motion. Any tricks or adjustment to this?

Any help will be truly appreciated!

Is your hydraulic fluid at the proper level? Do you know when the hydraulic fluid and filters were last changed? And do you know for a fact that the installed fluid meets JD specs with the proper friction characteristics for the pto clutch? If not I'd recommend draining all the hydraulic fluid, change the filters, and refill with the proper JD approved fluid. Bleed the air and see if things improve.

Is there a pto clutch? I was told it was a direct gear drive off of the engine crank shaft.

What is the correct hydraulic fluid for the 4310? I will change it before the next use. The tractor only has 200 hours on it. The only maintenance that I am aware of from the previous owner was engine oil changes.

It has an electric PTO wet clutch/brake pack operated by the switch. Generally you'd run JD Hy-Gard (and low-viscosity Hy-Gard if operating in temps below 0 degrees). All fluids and filters should have been changed at 50 hours and at 200 hours it's due again.

Tork, there is no mechanically engaged PTO clutch, it is electronically engaged. When I engage the PTO on my rotary cutter I also get a bang - but not a large bang. A bang you would expect on a hinged blade that has been kicked into gear. If you are having problems with sensitivity on the 430 loader then you might have problems with hydraulic fluid or lines as KW suggests.

Skip the Low-Vis entirely. Just use regular Hygard.

Maybe you can find the maintenance records records from the previous owner through the dealer you bought from.

I bought the tractor directly from the original owner. He seemed pretty meticulous about the tractor, but he was also very elderly. I'm not sure I would feel completely satisfied about any answers I got from him.

Because of the low hours, I'm not worried about any damage related to maintenance. I did notice that the oil plug had been turned, so I figured he took care of the engine oil.

I know that it would be a good idea to perform all of the regular maintenance because I don't know for sure that it was done.

That would make sense as it is due at 200 hours anyway.

Do skip the low-vis. I can go into the reasons or you could check the archives.

I checked your profile. In Texas you would never need the Low-Vis anyway. Welcome to TractorPoint! Come on in and participate, there's a great bunch of folks here.

as for as the loader dropping fast, you should check to see if the restriction orfice is installed/installed correctly in the return circuit. replace the filters they could be clogged and in "bypass" mode having no restriction whats so ever adding to the drop rate
