    Weird steering

    I was moving and spreading a little rock for the driveway this afternoon, and suddenly noticed that the steering effort had gone down by halfish. It stayed much lighter for the rest of the time that I was working. Didnt notice any difference in the 3 point or loader. The only thing I can think of is a dirty suction screen allowing flow variations. My dealer did the 50 hour service so I ASSUME they cleaned it. Thoughts? 1025r, 137 hours. Thanks!

    Check the fluid level. Connecting implements on and off you lose a little, maybe you have gotten low enough that it affected your steering. Did you notice any other hydraulic functions lacking?

    I did check it and it was fine. All other hydraulics seemed to function normally. It's like there was a problem, and now there's not.

    It will do that when the FEL is loaded heavy. More weight on the front end the harder it is to turn at times. When mine does that I know to add more weight to the back.

    What you said plus raise the front tire pressure if you haven't done so.

    I'm sorry, I guess I'm not explaining the situation clearly. Between one bucket and the next, the steering effort dramatically decreased for no apparent reason, like there was a flow restriction that had cleared or something similar. Tire pressures are good, rear ballast hadn't changed.

    So the power steering kicked into overdrive and made steering easier correct? Like prior to the steering becoming easier there was an obstruction or otherwise a reduced flow in the power steering assist mechanism right?

    So I doubt that it would be the screen in the rear. If it were to blame the flow to all of your hydraulics would have suffered. I also suspect that you would have heard the pump making noise from cavatation.

    My assumption would be that something in the lines supplying or returning from the power steering actuators freed up or the proportioning valve in the power steering system is going bad or cleared whatever was blocking it.

    Does it steer like new or better than new? Does it continue to steer "better"?
