 L3400 HST noise

Just bought a L3400 with HST and Kabota loader. I am happy with the tractor and beleive it will do the work I have planned on my 25 acre mostly wooded land. My one concern is the tin-e noise that seems to be coming from the HST. I don't hear the noise when the cluth is depressed. Can anyone tell me if this is normal for this HST? When I accelerate the noise gets louder, but the tractor has plenty of power. Thanks for any input, Ben

Have you driven a HST before? They do have a tendency to whine. Hard to tell from here if it's normal or not.

Never driven an HST before. I,ve looked in the manual and can,t find a way to check the fluid except to look at the inspection window. It's a solid yellow color. Ben

Keeping the transmission in the lowest gear range that allows you to get your work done does help reduce the amount of whinning noise.

Ben,
I have a B and the HST on it whines also. As to checking fuild level using a check glass (mine uses dipstick) clear clean fluid can be hard to tell level of in a glass. If you don't see a difference it can be low or overfilled. I was using self contained hyd piece of equipment and though it was low, surpised to realize it was greatly overfilled.

It's really important that the machine be on level ground when checking fluid. On my green machine only a few degrees of slope can really change what appears in the sight glass.

Low Gear is the best solution to keep the whine to a minimum. Put a can on that tractor and you need aer protection. The cab traps the whine something terrible.

Still prefer the HST over gear. Just need to get used to the whine.

Beagle hit a truth to me on mine and one reason I don't notice whine that much...I always wear ear protection. When I rev up my motor for the HST and mower, it will affect your hearing.

I usually wear a logging helment with face shield and ear muffs when driving mine. The face shield is needed to protect from tree branches that always hit the operator when working in the woods (95% of what we do). And since the helmet has ear muffs, why not use 'em?

ks,
I told a friend this morning to use ear muffs over ear plugs when cutting with his rough cut rotary cutter (Bush Hog). Why? So when the limbs hit your ears they are protected. Logger helmet better solution.
