Question Kubota B 1700 - adjusting the speed of the front hydraulics

Hi Kubota-Fans!

I recently bought my first Kubota. It's a Kubota B 1700 (manufactured in 1996).

We have a small hotel in the countryside close to Cologne in Germany. As last winter was one of the worst in decades, I bought the tractor for snow plowing (among other stuff related to our garden).

The Kubota really does a great job. However, I wonder whether it is possible to adjust the speed of the front hydraulics and if yes - how?

The hydraulics at the back work normally. Just the hydraulics at the front seem to be a lot slower.

It's great to share my Kubota enthusiasm with people from around the world.

Thank you very much in advance,
Martina

Slow 'up' or slow 'down' or both? Diagnosis and repair is different.

I checked the front hydraulics again and it goes slow in both directions.

Is this easy to repair/adjust?

Where is your 3 pt lever? if it is all the way up the relief valves could be opening just bump your lever down a little to release pressure
