    2038r not strong enough, stalls out

    Alright, a few mightíve seen me commenting a few months ago about engine horsepower and how I believe that you should always go with the strongest engine in a given frame size. An old wives tale has always floated around saying that youíll run out of traction way before horse power. Well, I always ran out of horsepower first with my 1025r. Then I upgraded to a 3046r cab model and I ran out of horsepower. I now have a 2038r and... I ran out of horsepower. All have had r4 tires and no wheel weights. This was my first chance on the 2038r to see what it would do. I was a bit disappointed as I was hoping to just pull it straight through the ground. I was not taking a full bite either... I had the loader on but no material in the bucket.

    I can see why you would run out of horsepower. You sure were plowing deep. If that is virgin soil, it’s going to be tough to plow the first time. Next year will be easier. By the way, are you sure you ran out of horsepower with the 3046r pulling the single bottom plow? If so, why did you downgrade to a 2038r?

    good videos!

    Iíve seen a video from Messicks that explains that the farther you push a hydrostatic pedal that essentially the higher gear you are running. So a petal all the way down would be like pulling in 6th gear of your truck. I can spin all 4 tires of my 2025r in dry soil but not if I have the forward petal all the way to the floor. Looks like you have it pinned all the way down. Maybe try to let up about halfway. Iíll bet it has plenty of power to spin the tires.

    What range are you in in those videos - low or high?

    Also - when you come upon some resistance are you pushing harder in the go pedal? Thatís not how these tractors work - by pushing down on the go pedal you are essentially pushing it into a higher gear.

    Based on how far the pedal is moving or let’s say not moving, the noise and the speed your going it looks like high.


    Op,
    Switch it to low and you will run out of traction first.

    When you meet some resistance ease off on the go pedal and let the engine catch back up. And just curious, why are you hanging two suitcase weights that high up on the ROPS, if you are looking for weight for pulling, weight down low is the way to go.

    Hey Guys,

    I was in low range, full throttle, and the differential lock was on along with 4 wheel drive.

    Who cares about virgin ground or that Iím plowing deep. This is just to show that the 2038r will indeed run out of horsepower before traction.

    This plow is new to this tractor. I sold the 3046 when I moved to a smaller lot and the cab wouldnít fit. I sure miss it.

    This tractor only has two gears. High and low. Pressing the pedals does not provide any gearing effect whatsoever. If the pedals provided a gearing effect then there would only be high range since you can get the exact same speed with high as you can with low. The only ďgearing effectĒ is perceived solely because itís easier to pull something at a slower speed than higher speed.

    Because thatís the only place I could find to hang them! I lost stability (although it wasnít needed) but ground pressure was the same regardless of where they were. I felt that with the loader on that it unloaded the rear a bit so I wanted to put some weight back on the rears.

    I do not doubt what you are saying. In the right conditions, improper application of the attachments a D-9 Cat-Dozer will get stuck in ground engagement.
