Hello all. I have a 2018 TLB 1025. Haven't used my ballast box in a while, but needed to move it today. I put my three point stuff and imatch back on, backed up to the box, and uhh. Nothing. Not strong enough to lift it. The arms go up and down, and it lifts the mower deck no problem but?? I had no problem lifting this last winter when the machine was new. Box weighs approx. 500lbs.
I have the knob under the seat open, but it's no good.
I did all my fluids and filters along with the transaxle screen at 60hrs, now have about 120hrs.
I have noticed in the last few months that the mower deck will not really stay up on its own anymore. The height lever likes to quickly drop.
Don't know what gives. Rock shaft valve? Hydraulic pump? don't know.
