I've only had the tractor a short while and only used my loader twice so the whole tractor is new. I am a mechanic so noises really get my attention and I accidentally left it in 4x4 on my way back to the house and I notice it was humming a little from the front so I put it in 4x2 and the noise quieted down. So when I got in the garage I raised the front tires off of the ground with the loader and spun the front tires by hand and there is noise from the front axle when I spin them. Can anyone else tell me if when they spin their front wheels is it super quiet or is there like a gear mesh/ bearing type noise.

I have a 2320 and I can immediately tell if it's in 4X4. There is a noise difference.

Oh........by the way.........:wgtt:

The noise does get quieter in 4x2 and do also still hear something which is what I hear when I raise the front wheels and spin them

I can check our 2320 out tonight if you like but not sure it's apples to apples.
I do agree with sterling40man's statements, 2320 vs 2320.

My 1026 makes a noise when the front end is off of the ground & the wheels turned by hand.
With all of the gears involved in a 4x4 front axle, I do not see how there would not be a noise of some type.

Kchasse, As others stated, same goes for the 2320. If yours sounds a little too much maybe you could check the oil and if it checks out ok it's probably just fine.

Noise is normal. Excessive noise makes metal shavings. To put your mind at ease, change the front axle fluid.
Good idea. Cheap too.:good2:
