    1023e 3 point hitch slowly drops on its own

    and for my second post, another question:-) I'll try to post some pics or a video of my tractor.

    I have the ballast box attached and filled, packed tightly with damp dirt.
    It will slowly drop even if I tighten the locking valve under the seat all the way snug. When running I have to occasionally raise the box.
    Is this normal or do I have an issue I should get checked? The valve does seem to work
    as it affects how quickly the 3 point hydraulics raise and lower the box.

    thanks

    Rich

    The rate of drop valve is just that. It's supposed to regulate how fast the 3PH can come down. If you have it closed all the way and your 3PH still drifts down, then it's leaking by. I would have a chat with your dealer. If it's not closed off completely, some drooping over time is normal. The big question is how fast. You shouldn't have to raise the 3PH to compensate for droop every few minutes, but a couple of times while you're operating the tractor would be considered normal.

    Keep your questions coming! You're one of us now.

    I agree with DS, it shouldn't sag very much over time. I would have the dealer look into it.

    Its probably ok then. It will take maybe 30 min to sag to the ground, I've gotten in the habit of raising it a few times while running.

    thanks for the responses

    The 1023E does not have 3 point position control, so the only way to stop the issue of your arms dropping is to close the rate of drop valve.

    My 1026R never leaked down and then one day it started. Just noticed it was down next morning. After that it got worse. It was a scored lift cylinder.

    I have positional control, but I would think that the 1023 should keep the arms up when running with no loss of height. Mine falls overnight when NOT running. Something seems wrong if it falls while you are running.

    A position control 3PH like the one you have on your tractor will keep the hitch where you designate it to be with the control lever if it's working ok. The 1023E doesn't have a position control hitch. It uses a "Select Control" which is just an up/stop/down lever just like the loader joystick. You move the hitch by moving the lever in the direction you want the hitch to go, release it when it gets to where you want. So if there's an issue, the hitch will drift on it's own.

    Hmmm my dealer shrugged it off and told me I need close the rate of drop valve on my 1023 so I never questioned it. Does anyone here know if it is a problem if it seeps while the tractor is running?
