Did you have a very loud hydraulic "WHINE" noise when the tractor wouldn't move and you were pushing the forward direction pedal?Should a 2305 be able to spin tires on loose soil in 4 wheel and low range? I was trying to tow something very heavy up hill in loose soil and the tractor would not move and the engine did not bog and tires did not spin. I am thinking prv might be faulty.
How far were you depressing the FWD pedal?tractor had a very loud hydraulic whine sound but no movement, no tire spin and the engine didn't "bogg" down. This all occurred when moving forward uphill towing a very large industrial chipper. Tractor works fine since but will not tow chipper. This tractor always seemed slow and under powered in forward. Thinking maybe PRV?
Depending on how far down you were pushing the FWD pedal what you experienced could be normal.Yes, I do mean the pressure relief valve. The chipper does weigh about 3000lbs and I know it is a SCUT but I expected the engine to bogg down or tire spin. It just sat there with a load whine.
Deere technical manuals are not available for free online - they are copyrighted.I tried with pedal completely down and just pressing slightly both had same results. Does anyone have an online copy of the tech manual for this tractor? I am thinking of testing the hydraulic pressure but dont have a manual and I can not find anything online.
Pressing the pedal completely down will definitely result in what you experienced but just slightly pressing it should not have.I tried with pedal completely down and just pressing slightly both had same results.

You will definitely want to get a technical manual. If it's anything like my 2720 there is a detailed procedure for testing charge pump pressure and it involves a gauge of a specified range and a special fitting that can be difficult to find.What I would like to test is the pressure for the forward drive circuit. I would like to know if the PRV is lifting early.
Why does that seem strange to you?Thanks for the advice including "stop pulling heavy weight" it just seems odd that the tractors engine rpm doesnt slow at all before the PRV opens. I guess I will get a service manual and dig into it over the next few weeks.
