    300E Loader Bucket Drift

    I have a 3025E with the 300E loader. With nothing in the bucket, the bucket 3 foot high and level -- the bucket will drift to full dump in about 40 seconds. There looks like there are no valves etc on the loader frame so my problem is in the loader valve?
    Any suggestions as to where to look for repairing the bucket drift?

    If it's leaking that fast, then most likely one of your cylinders are bypassing internally and needs to be rebuilt, but they are best done in pairs anyway. At about $100 to do yourself, it's the cheapest thing to try.

    My guess is the loader valve. Unhook the bucket hoses, and try your test again.

    I had the same problem yesterday with rapid dump but I was shooting hydro fluid from a loose fitting on the curl cylinder...

    Thanks for the replies.

    I should have a couple of days off in a week and will try to look at it again. I'll let everyone know hoe it turns out.

    First thing I'd do is swap your loader connections at the SCV ports.

    If you swap and the same problem continues, you've got bad cylinders.
    If the problem changes to the entire loader dropping, you've got a bad valve.
    If the problem goes away entirely, one of your connections wasn't fully seated. (Although I'd think you should see fluid on the ground if that's your issue...)

    My 2018 3025e with only 38hrs on it has been back in 3 times to the dealer for the same thing. It has had 3 different loader valves installed and they still haven't fix it. The tested the cylinder's and they hold. The John Deere rep was sent out last Friday and they are filling a case on it and are supposed to put some check valves inline so that I can still use it while they figure it out. The 3rd loader valve they just put in almost passed their drift test so it has gotten better but it is very frustrating having a new tractor and it's been in 3 times in 38hrs.
