I'll assume you mean when your tractor is turned off. For what reason are you keeping your loader raised when your tractor is turned off?My 200cx leaks off and to the ground in about 10 minutes. Is this normal?
I think you mean this thread.Very common. Randy and Kenny were discussing a kit they found in JD Parts that was designed to stop this.
Sorry Guys, The Deere site is having an issue. I cannot, currently, access this info. If I don't post a response by tomorrow evening, send me a message, because I will likely forget to look it up.:bash:JD does have a published spec on "acceptable" leakdown rates, I saw it when I complained about mine years ago-and unfortunatly mine fell into the "acceptable" category. IIRC it was something like 3" per hour or so but not 100% sure.
If it's still under warranty, then tell the dealer about it to see what they say.
Perhaps Kevin can find this spec and post it for us-I will ask him...
Thank you Kevin, that is the one I saw before...If I remember correctly those measurements are taken on the rod retracting into the cylinder and not the actual loader or bucket drop correct?This is what I found.

Right. It's not a normal practice for me. After reading this thread I wanted to see how long it would take, because I had never left the tractor with the three-point or bucket at anything but the lowest position.Don't worry, :empathy3: it will.
Not to harp on safety, but it really isn't a safe practice to leave hydraulics pressurized, very bad things can happen.
