Hi folks. Just picked up a 68 hour 2015 1025R FILB last weekend. Used it last week to mow and this weekend to remove and replace a small channel drain beside our driveway.
My left control stick (which controls left/right swing and boom up/down seems to be sticky and it makes it very difficult to precisely control these movements. I sprayed some lube on the ball/clevis linkages but that didn't help.
It looks like a little gasket is missing where the pushrod goes into the control valve -- see below. Three of the four rods have a gasket and the one doesn't. Would that matter?
Any other ideas/suggestions?
Tractor was purchased from an out of state dealer, very clean, lightly used. Still under warranty so I can certainly take it to my local dealer. Just wanted to avoid the hassle.
