    2501 acts like brakes on

    I bought this tractor used. I have put most of the 320 hours on it, tho. I have never seen a tractor act like this. I can barely shove the top of the rear tire on a flat cement floor. I had a New Holland that I could push all over that floor. Same HP tractor. Thanks guys

    2501 acts like brakes on

    Have a 2016 L2501 2wd gear tractor. When mowing or moving even with heavy stuff attatched......pressing on the clutch gives a quick stop...almost like braking.

    2 WD front axle pivot lube

    Thanks Wolfman.....I don't see how the plug in the rear is part of the slop removing stuff...but if you say so. It is just a little plug. I will take it out again and stick a wire or something in there to see how deep it is and if any grease is in there. Thank you for your help. Maybe I can lube...

    2 WD front axle pivot lube

    I have a 2016 L2501 2WD. On the front axle pivot there is no grease fitting...only a plug on the rear part. The front consists of the adjustment bolts. Can't find any info on this. Should I remove the plug and attempt to grease ? Wonder why a fitting is not there? It is a big pivot point and...
