    Missing zerks (never installed) on L4060 front wheel case supports.

    Thank you, yes, you're right. I was looking at my operator's manual and had not looked at the WSM and I just looked at that and just as you said, the 3560 and my 4060 have an axle without grease fittings and the larger models, 4760 and up have axles with zerks.

    Missing zerks (never installed) on L4060 front wheel case supports.

    I have an L4060 that I bought last year from a dealer with 170 hours on it. I keep it in a garage and I've only put about 20 light-duty hours on it since then. I grease the loader every 10 hours and I decided to grease the rest of the tractor instead of waiting for 50 hours (which seems like...

    Homemade Chainsaw Carrier

    Well, I've been wanting to rig up a contraption for carrying my chainsaw on my L4060 so I wouldn't have to put it in the bucket when I'm in the woods cutting up downfallen trees. I know there are kits on the market like SawHaul, but I didn't want to spend $180 on the thing and I'm not crazy...

    L 4060 slow FEL when box blade is on the 3PH

    Thank you, everyone. It is indeed the relief valve setting on the 3PH, and think even I can adjust that and not screw anything up! I raised the lift arms to ever-higher positions and the FEL worked fine all the way to almost-the-top. And then, when I reached the top, the slow-loader symptoms...

    L 4060 slow FEL when box blade is on the 3PH

    Thanks. I did hear some squealing briefly a few times today, but I'm also half deaf and I wasn't paying attention to it specifically when it happened, so I'll test it out tomorrow. And it seems to me that your suggestion might be correct, because when I raised the empty lift arms to their...

    L 4060 slow FEL when box blade is on the 3PH

    So, does that mean it might be as simple as the quick connect hoses having been reconnected to the wrong couplings?

    L 4060 slow FEL when box blade is on the 3PH

    I bought a used L4060 with 170 hours on it a few weeks ago. I have used it for a few hours, only using the FEL. The tires are loaded with beet juice and I have not needed any ballast hanging on the 3PH yet. I bought an old 6' Gannon rollover box blade for my first 3PH attachment. Today, I put...

    Changed fuel filter, won’t start!!

    I had a 1995 Ford F250 with the 7.3 liter turbo diesel that I bought from a guy who had used starting fluid to start if when his glow plug relay went out. I took it to the dealer to get it fixed and they had to take off both heads because according to the dealer, several glow plugs had been...

    l4060 - Sudden, very brief drop in RPM when very slowly moving in to pick up a unit of lumber with forks

    You were exactly right.....I was lifting my butt slightly off the seat when I leaned forward and that triggered the safety switch. Thank you very much!

    l4060 - Sudden, very brief drop in RPM when very slowly moving in to pick up a unit of lumber with forks

    Great, thanks for that information. I'll try that test. The fact that lifting off the seat will kill the motor when you are standing still but trying to lift something......I think that may be what I was doing. I'll test it out. Thanks again.

    l4060 - Sudden, very brief drop in RPM when very slowly moving in to pick up a unit of lumber with forks

    Thank you. I'm definitely leaning forward but not sure if I'm lifting off the seat.....I'll intentionally do that and see if it recreates the situation. And I have now turned off the stall guard too.

    l4060 - Sudden, very brief drop in RPM when very slowly moving in to pick up a unit of lumber with forks

    I weigh 190, so it's not an issue of me being too light :). I definitely am leaning forward to see the forks when I'm creeping forward to slide the forks in between 2 units of lumber, but I'm not sure if I might be lifting off the seat or not. I'll intentionally do that and see if that might...

    l4060 - Sudden, very brief drop in RPM when very slowly moving in to pick up a unit of lumber with forks

    I wonder about that too. Today I didn't work the machine but I did turn off the stall guard to see if the problem recurs.

    l4060 - Sudden, very brief drop in RPM when very slowly moving in to pick up a unit of lumber with forks

    I bought it from a dealer and it was completely serviced by them before I picked it up. Fuel filter bowl is crystal clear and the fuel filter is clean.

    l4060 - Sudden, very brief drop in RPM when very slowly moving in to pick up a unit of lumber with forks

    I just bought a 2016 L4060 HST with 170 hours on it. I have only used it for a couple of hours. It replaces an L48 TLB I sold, so this is my first Tier 4 machine. I have some units of hardwood lumber I need to move to a different location on my property. Yesterday I was moving a stack that...

    Fluid in hydraulic cylinder is milky but in rest of tractor, fluid is clear.

    Thanks, I’ll try that. I was using the 35 degree fan tip on the pressure washer and I was holding it back some, but I definitely came within 6” or so for several brief moments. I bought the machine used 10 years ago and in that time, have only put a couple of hundred hours on it. 3 years ago...

    L48 TLB Steering control has started to leak

    Well, another hydraulic issue. The steering control on my L48 TLB with 1280 hours has begun a slight leak at the top of the steering column. I’ve read some other posts about that part on other models that have said it’s the top seal and you have to tear down the valve, and it’s...

    Fluid in hydraulic cylinder is milky but in rest of tractor, fluid is clear.

    I don’t think so. I’m going to play it safe and change the fluid. Thanks. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
