    Hey everybody, My JD 2030's FEL has problems tilting with heavier loads. Lifting up and down is not a problem but with a heavy load, but it wants to tilt downward and will not respond when trying to tilt up. Just had this happen unloading a little over 900 lbs of material out of my pickup...

    Hi all. Still getting accustomed to my JD 2030. Great tractor. I'm wondering if anyone has estimates as to how much weight the 3pt can lift. Also curious about the FEL. Just got some bucket forks and am excited to start using them. I appreciate any insights. Colin
  4. Agricultural Tractors
    Hi there. I recently acquired a JD 2030 for my farm. Absolutely love the tractor so far. Yesterday I hooked up a 9ft disc and started working up about 5 acres. I haven't used the disc in a while (borrowed) but I recall the wheels lifting higher when hydraulics lever is in the down position...

    I have a 2030 that has worked really well for the 6ish years I’ve had it, with nothing but really minor problems. Recently though, it’s had some issue that seems to have resulted in a loss of power. It will only run if the left gearshift is in 1st gear and won’t move whatsoever in 2nd gear...

    Greetings from New Zealand folks. I recently purchased a 2030 with front end loader. It's been running pretty well for for the last 6 months. I have done a hydraulic oil change including cleaning the screen and changing the filter. Last week I was out mowing a paddock and the PTO just cut out...

    The diesel engine on the 2030 I have is hard to start when cold. Even on a fairly warm spring day (e.g. mid-60s) I have trouble getting it started. The starter just cranks away with black smoke coming from the stack. If I plug in the coolant heater (basically draws power like our stock tank...

    Each of the rear tire fenders on the Deere 2030 (standard vertical fenders) have two runways (tire side) for the wire or wires going to each of the fender light fixtures. It would be useful to run new wire through some of these runways but they are all plugged with dirt. Does anyone have a tip...

    I have a Deere 2030 (1975 build date) that I recently acquired. It runs well but the brake pedals do not return after being pressed. The local Deere dealer says he vaguely recalls something about that but is not certain. Does anyone here recall having or hearing about this and what the solution...

    I have a 1975 vintage utility tractor (deere 2030) with a radiator overflow that drains to the ground. I overfilled the radiator the other day and while warming up the engine noticed antifreeze dripping to the ground. While the fluid I use has a bittering agent, I was wondering about the...

    I've had my hydraulick pump drive collapsed, and it is the bolts in the pulley which is teared away. I must eighter change the pulley or make some new holes. Anyone have an idea how I can loosen the centre bolt? When I try move the bolt the whole crank follows. And is the centre bolt threaded...

    Hi All, New to the forum so please forgive and direct me to correct category if wrong. Last Thursday while using a box blade I shifted from forward to reverse and it wouldn't go into reverse, it would just grind. After inspecting the linkage and opening the inspection port I noticed 1 of the 3...
