 Seemingly weak FEL

The LA 302 loader on my 7510 seems like it is not as strong as it once was. The tractor is only 2.5 years old -- it is stores outside (until I build an addition on the barn, hopefully in the spring!). The fluid (the yellow dipstick right near the seat) is so clear it is hard to check, but it looks like it is full. The tractor also seems to lug a bit more than. I have not been using it as much over the past two months -- put something "feels" different -- not sure what.

Does anyone have any suggestions? Could the hydraulic fluid simply be a bit low?

Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Is it cold there and the tractor fully warmed up when you use it?

Unfortunately, it's 40 degrees -- warming up the tractor helps, but I swear I used to be able to lift more.

Reduced hydraulic flow could affect this. Have you been keeping up with fluid and filter changes? Proper fluid and viscosity?

I had someone do the 100 hour service in July, and am about 7 hours past due for the 150 service. At the 100 hour service he used Kubota filters and fluids. I have never noticed any leaking fluid. Should the hydraulic fluid be checked when it is warm or cold? Does it matter? The owners manual is a little vague in this area.

Thanks!

Oliver; Being stored outside does your tractor sit under the eave of a building where the water from the roof would be enough more than normal to leak somehow into the transmission thru a vent plug or something? Some hydraulic systems have a real fine screen on the intake that water will coat over and restrict flow. You said the fluid was clear, is this when the tractor has sat and cooled off or right after using it long enough to warm the fluid to operating temperature? Reson for last question, water settles out of the fluid when it sits for a few hours, but checking it directly after shutdown will show cloudy or milky color for water contamination. Far as an accurate fluid level check, warm or cold makes little difference, but parking it in the exact same spot every time you check the fluid lever is important. Having the tractor sit at a different attitude can make a big differenc on a dipstick reading. Best of luck. Frank.

Yes it has been stored under the eave of a building -- and when it is not, it is right out in the elements. I did not notice the fluid being cloudy, but I will run it over the next day or two and see what it looks like when it is warm.

Or maybe the loader is just not powerful enough and I should put a down payment on the L3400 I cannot justify buying...

Generally speaking if the hyd. fluid isn't up to nominal operating temp. that will result in the pump not being warm too. If the pump has steel gears and the housing is aluminum, the parts expand and contract at different rates and amounts. If one material/component is not up to par, you should expect lower pressures. Similarly when the pump is too hot the alum. housing will expand more than the gears and pressure slips past the side plates. I'd work it to the temp up, then evaluate it. Fluid type and viscosity play a part too, but should even out once the temp is reached.

Adding to what EW wrote it is not a bad idea to heat up the oils and make sure that you remove as much condensation as possible.

also make sure you have not pulled the up lever on the 3 point . If it is up sometines that makes the fel weak. You may have to adjust the control knob or let the hitch drop.
