    Unhappy Hydraulic lift problem 2011 x534

    Hi,
    I am having a problem with the hydraulic lift on my 2011 x534. It was working fine and now I can't get it to go up or down. When I lie under the tractor I can see the lift shaft go back and forth but nothing happens. Also the height adjustment lever turns all the way around and doesn't appear to be functioning. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    thanks!

    Does the deck seem like it is stuck up? If so, I would suspect the adjustment knob is the main issue.

    Here is the parts involved.

    You might remove the deck to watch the arms go up and down as well to make sure nothing is in a bind. If its stuck in the up position or something.

    Thumbs up Welcome to GTT!

    Here's a WAG but it sounds like the height adjustment has the deck locked in the up position. Try raising the deck all the way and then turning the height adjuster cam underneath the tractor by hand. Once the deck is lowered, you'll need to find what's broken on the height adjustment system. Be careful not to get hurt.

    Unhappy

    Thanks for the quick responses. So I can see the cam shaft slide back and forth but nothing happens. The lift arms do not move at all. I currently have nothing installed on the tractor. I was in the process of putting on the mower deck when I found the problem. When I turn the lift adjustment knob the metal plate underneath does in fact turn but as i said it turns all the way around. I too suspect it is something to do with that which is causing my problem. I guess I'll have to have the dealer take a look.

    Are you sure the lift arms will drop without weight? I thought it took weight to get it to work.

    This is a great question, you might be onto something. I was trying to lower the arms when i was installing the mower deck. So in order to install the deck I'll need to lift it up to get it to pin into the 2 arms. I guess i could try that and see if it works. I was thinking I should be able to line it up and lower the arms into position. I guess not?

    Yea I dont know. You shouldnt have to lift the deck up. I would think you should be able to set the knob to 1 and pull down on the arm. I had a 345 which was the predecessor to yours and I dont think the arms dropped very easy.

    The decks install really easy if you have concrete. Dont worry about putting the belt on or the front draft rod. Just slide it under and hook the back. See if it lifts up and down. Might need worked a few times !

    those arms do need weight to drop... to get them to drop if you push one side up and "slam" it down a couple of times they should drop down.
