MF165 Diesel Tractor

Jim Marlow My MF165 makes a loud rumbling sound when
turning left or right with hatbine or baler
working. Hydraulics seem to work o.k. but
could this be something to do with them or
would you suspect a bearing?? Took it to
repair person and they replaced the clutch
and said all should be fine. Has same problem
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Jim

Blue Buddy I wonder if the noise you are hearing is from the PTO shaft of the implement and not really from the tractor, lots of power shafts will make an almost knocking noise when turned to sharp under load, and if out of "phase" can make noiseeven going straight, maybe the noise if from that and is just being heard from the tractor?
CodTX I had same type of noise with a NH cutter. When making a sharpe turn, the noise sounded like it was comming out of tractor.
What was causing the noise was "out of phase" shaft on cutter. I think I had the wrong shaft head for the cutter. I had my cutter repaired and the mechanic notice that the shaft was "out of phase" He cut shaft and turned shaft 1/4 trun and welded shaft. The result was no more noise.
The mechanic learned about this at a NH school.
