It’s a older 2950, just got the AC going and started putting it to work since buying it. The hydraulics aren’t weak but here are my problems. Slow front end loader, everything bleeds down fast. Front loader goes down while driving it. The pull shredder with one hydraulic line, well the shredder bleeds down as well. I know what most would say or I think. Change filter, clean screen and put new fluid. The fluid in it is really clean, no water in it. I don’t know if the last owner did a filter or cleaned the screen. Not really even sure about anything on this tractors system. If I run high RPMs it seems to help but i do believe it should be a lot better then it currently is.
I own a 5055, it had water in it around 300hrs and nothing worked, like it had air in the system, changed filter cleaned screen and put JD fluid in it and it’s perfect... that’s about all I’ve ever down with hydraulics.
