    Leveling Loader Bucket?

    Does any know how to level the loader bucket from side to side on the 300e loader for a 3032e tractor? The loader bucket is about 1 1/2' higher on the left side than the right which makes it difficult to push snow, level dirt, or anything else. I checked the tire pressures so that's not the problem. It has been that way since new so it hasn't been bent. I searched the Operator's Manual but found nothing to help.

    There is no leveling procedure for that sort of thing on any of the loaders used on the subcompacts.

    There is something off somewhere. I haven't seen others complaining of it on 300-series loaders but we've had a couple of people with similar problems on 1- and 2- series compact tractors. Usually the mounts were welded up croooked and the dealers have replaced them under warranty.

    Park your machine on a flat surface (garage floor, concrete slab, etc..) and measure the height of your loader mounts on each side as a starting point.

    the loader level side to side ........is determined by a set of fixed points....need to find out where problem actually is...

    IE..

    check bucket...done
    check bucket connect points...
    check loader tractor connect points
    check rear axle


    i would park it on a level concrete slab and start measuring

    if you absolutely had to you could correct it on a temporary basis by adjusting/offsetting rear tire pressures

    I have the same issue on my 1025R. When I set it down on my garage floor, the left side hits the floor first. Off a little over 1/2 inch. Someone say warranty covers this?

    Have your dealer look at it. The tractor under warranty that's part of buying a new tractor.
