    3 pt drooping over night now.

    After re-adjusting the MMM max height adjustment yesterday so the height knob would go into lock position again, I figured out how to do it w/o dropping or messing with the mower height BTW. All of a sudden I check today and the 3pt is 1/4 way down overnight. Its stayed up fine since I got it new last December till last night and I didnt touch anything hydraulic. Has anyone else had that problem where the 3pt just starts drooping over night? Lever is all the way up.

    I only have a few hours on it since I did the 50hr hydraulic fluid change and levels are fine. Could there be an new internal leak that coincidentally happened after messing with it yesterday.

    We recently had another member post on this topic.
    I assume the hitch comes back up when you start the tractor?

    Yep. the only time i've seen this happen was on one of our big ag tractors, had an internal leak but it had 5000 hours on it and it comes up once fired up.
    I'm still under warranty, wonder if it would be worth an call to dealer.

    My experience

    I have been following both referenced threads about the 3-point drop issue. My 1026R had quite the opposite effect. After sitting in the Barn all winter, it was time to hook up the Ballast Box (concrete filled by dealer) with the Imatch. I backed up to it and pulled the lever and never thought anything of it till I tried to go forward. The 3-Point couldn't lift it. After going through several attempts to lift the box, I succeeded in getting it to rise 1", which was just enough to get it out of the barn. Off to the Dealer it went. What was determined was that the Square Valving? item about the size of a pack of cards that is bolted on top of the rear axle housing just under the seat had failed for some reason. JD apparently had a new design that they installed and all seems to operate correctly now. This may or may not be the problem being discussed here but, mine may have been a sever case of Leak Down etc or at least a form of it?

    Mine did that and it ended up being a scored lift cylinder.

    Ill have to do the drop down test and see how fast it drops.

    Now, i dont have a tech manual yet for this yet. How does the 3pt work on these? Is there a cylinder inside or some hydraulic servo motor? Just curious. Most of the new "big tractors" now have external cylinders and I always wondered how ours and the older tractor 3pt worked internally.

    The 3PH on smaller tractors use a single acting cylinder internal to the rockshaft housing. By tilting your seat up, you may be able to see the casting of it.

    Where am I on this? Look at this post. If it drops less than 2" in ten minutes, then there is nothing wrong. Personally I feel like that's a little much, especially with no implement attached. If it drops overnight, so what? You shouldn't be leaving it up anyway.
