    3pt hitch?

    I've noticed while using my 3pt hitch with implements I occasionally have to readjust height cause it bleeds down on its own. I have 1023. Is this normal?

    I would have it checked at the dealer. Some leak down is normal. Leave the attachment on and have it checked. Are you under warranty?

    My 2305 with 600lbs takes about a week to bleed down. The further it drops the fadrer it bleeds but it has more leverage against it as it starts to bleed down faster.

    The 1023 3 point valve has no feedback to the control valve so there isn't anything in the hydraulic circuit to cause the system to maintain a position on the rockshaft, not to mention testing the leak down rate is very arbitrary at best. Unless the leak down is extremely noticeable, assigning an exact amount of time it will take for a 3 point to leak down is not practical.
    There is no counterbalance (holding) valve on the rockshaft cylinder so the cylinder is held up simply by the control valve. All valves have internal leakage which will allow cylinders to leak down, how fast depends allot on internal leakage and the weight hanging on the cylinder.

    So how to test, with a load hanging on the 3 point with the tractor setting still, raise the rockshaft a close the rate of drop valve. The rockshaft should not leak down with the rate of drop valve closed. It is does, there is an internal leak in the rockshaft cylinder.

Often there is a washer on the control lever that will wear out causing the drop on the 3 point as well
    The 1023 does not have position control.

    It doesn't have a lever for raising and lowering the 3 point? What is the op readjusting height with? I understand what position control is, I've owned a tractor without it but it still had a control lever for the 3 point that sure enough would get loose and wouldn't hold the implement up unless I kept the lever tight.

    My understanding is that the position of the lever (1023) is always neutral unless you are adjusting the height. Unlike the position control where the position of the lever corresponds to the height of the 3pt.
