1520 John Deere help!
|Donna||I have a 1520 series John Deere tractor, earlier today I went out to move round bales, I had a round bale on my 3 point hitch & I went to drop it but my hitch won't go down......the bale is up as high as it will go, but it seems like something "gave" in my handle when I went to put the bale down........ it moves to freely. I got off to do finish plowing with the truck & let the tract or sit for about an hour or so. It looked like the bale had dropped some from just sitting there with the tractor off, when I started it up the arms raised the bale back up again without me touching it! Anyone have any idea on what could be wrong??
|Jimmy||My guess is it is out of adjustment. If you get a service manual it will tell you how to adjust the lift. I had the same problem adjusted it and it works good now.
|Donna||I've been reading the manual that I have, it really doesn't tell me what to do. If the tractor sits the bale will go down in about 3 hours, but as soon as I start the tractor up, it automatically lifts it up again, & I have the lever all the way down.
What did you do to yours to adjust it?
Thanks for the help!!!
|Jimmy||What year is the tractor first. Also my 2nd thought is the piston seal in the lift is bypassing oil causing a leakdown when it sits. An IT manual at TSC will tell you. Reply back with the year of it then I will know more of it. Good Luck
|Donna||I don't know the year, when I bought the tractor the all the seller told me it was in the 70's....sorry.
|Jimmy||Well then you take the plug out the back (under the remote) and weld a 9/16 socket on a long extension and you put it through the plug hole and adjust the lift in all the positions L and D then make sure it works in LD. I and T manual will tell you more. Good Luck.
|Donna||Thanks for your help. I tried taking the bolt off that holds the arm on, but that bugger is painted on there good!
Now a hydraulic hose broke on my front end loader so I can't move the bucket up!! I'm beginning to believe that John Deere sucks!!
|Jimmy||YOU should have got a JOHN DEERE 3020 OR 4020. Them ARE the BEST!!!
|DANIEL KENNEDY||MAKE SURE NUT ON LOWER LIFT HANDLE HASN'T SLIPPED.RAISE HANDLE TO TOP WITH TRACTOR OFF,FOLLOW LEVER TO BOTTOM WHERE IT FASTENS ,LOOSEN 9/16 NUT,HOLD LEVER TO REAR AND WITH PLIERS OR HAND MOVE SLOTTED SQUARE TOWARD FRONT OR TRACTOR AND TIGHTEN.
