Well I bought it....The multipower had been rebuilt when the engine was redone and had to be done the 2nd time under warranty since the dealer messed something up...The bucket has its own hydraulic pump and it is strong!!!!

Tractor runs great...But the 3pt hydraulics dont work too well. They are inconsistent on how high the lift goes with an implement on. If the engine is at idle, won't lift my tiller all the way up...Also can't set the height too well at "in between" locations....Kind of touchy....I don't know how to use all the features on the lift yet tho so it could be me...Or I could need new seals in the hydraulic pump..ANy tips or suggestions??

Does it make any difference whether you are lifting with the draft control or the position control? When you are using position control do you have the draft lever all the way up, and when you are using the draft control lever do you have the position control lever all the way up? Each one has to be all the way up for the other to work properly. What does the hydraulic fluid look like? I would start with the simple stuff first.

Ok, It was user error on the 3pt lift. Works pretty good. I have another problem tho. I have a 6ft tiller. Used it yesterday on unplowed ground....When engaging the pro the tiller would work fine til I started forward in low range 1st gear. Then at times it would "take off" like the PTO was pushing the tractor pretty fast....Way faster than Low 1st.

I also noticed the PTO turns even when disengaged....How big a problem do I have here????

I am going to post a new topic on this...Thanks
