In cold temperatures the hydraulics are very sluggish. We have adequate pressure 2800PSI. Screen, filter and oil is new. Oil is at spec. We heat the TM with dipstick heater and magnetic heater on bottom. At start up we engage PTO to help warm TM. Is there a better way to bring up to temp or is just the nature of the beast?

In some of my older owner manuals the mention using a jumper hose in the scv to assist warm up.

The hydraulics will be sluggish until the hydraulic oil warms up. The manual for your tractor on pages 55-13 and 55-14 recommends setting the throttle at 1000 rpm after starting the tractor and holding the steering wheel at full lock (either left or right) for 2-3 minutes to warm the hydraulic oil if the operation is sluggish. This forces the relief valve to bypass and heats the oil.
