LX2610 stalling when creeping

I just took delivery of an LX2610 last week. When I was attempting to creep the forks under a pallet, the tractor stalled with an oil pressure light. It restarted just fine and I successfully went and moved a bunch of dirt. I later went back to move the pallet and the tractor stalled again when I attempted to creep forward under the pallet.

What would cause this?

When you are creeping, are you leaning forward or off to the side (to get a better look)? If so it could be that the seat/kill switch is working? That would be my first guess.

Yep, that will do it. Installed a remote camera on mine so my butt can stay in the seat.

It never dawned on me that could be the problem. I always associated the seat safety switch with the PTO and not with the seat is general. If I was moving that slow to get make sure I was getting under the pallet, I would venture to guess that I was straining to see the end of the forks and taking pressure off of the seat.

I appreciate the reply.

Does leaning off the seat of a LX2610 cause it to shut down without the PTO running? I can start my BX2380 while standing to the side. Only time it shuts down is if I get off the seat and the PTO is engaged.

I am not sure on the OPs model for certain…it was just a guess….or your Bx, but on mine if it’s moving, as soon as my arse thinks about not being in the seat, it shuts down. If not moving I can stand up…but if it’s rolling(like when I have the creeps 😉) it won’t tolerate me leaning over to far.

If the hst pedal isn't in neutral, yes.

Try engaging the HST pedal when your not sitting in the seat.

When I first got my tractor and forks this would happen to me frequently so I painted the ends of the forks orange to help see where they are. Seems to help some.

If desired, a seat switch jumper wire will solve the problem!

I use a loosely fitted small zip tie looped around the seat switch lever under the seat, keeping it from popping up and shutting me down. The tie loop can slip off quickly and easily to restore full safety before anyone else but me runs the tractor.

No thanks. Mine works as intended and makes it much safer for everyone using or bystanding. For that matter I’ll go against the grain here and mention I would be willing to pay extra for a bank angle sensor that would function properly for tractor use. Id be more than happy for it to shut down prior to a roll over.

Or atleast a backup to the seat switch. I had a bike that if it were to end up on its side (not that I would know...) it used an oil level sensor to cut the engine before it could self destruct. Or they could switch to a tether like most powersports machines that way you could move around the "deck" for that vantage point but still cut off should the worst happen.

My solution to that is: No one else but ME runs my tractors!

Mine might be funny, but I can “jog” my tractor without being in the seat. Seems like it takes about 2 seconds when pressing on the hst before it starts to die. So if I’m inching in, short bursts are just fine…
