MF 245 slow hydraulics

Just picked up a MF 245 with loader and the hydraulics are slow but are strong it will pick the front of the tractor up. I was thinking of changing the hydraulic fluid and filter if that does not fix it what else would I look at ?

Had a loader on my 245 when I got it. Strong as an ox but slower.....with internal hydraulics. I parted with the loader since my other tractor has one. Not only was it slow, but extremely heavy. There is a valve in front of the seat that let me choose either the loader or the 3 point but not both. Made using either one a pain.

Are you using the internal hydraulic pump or does it have a front mounted pump? If you are using the internal pump it will be slow.

My MF-240-S only has 670 hours on it, and it has always been slow. Powerful, but slow. In the back of my mind, I seem think that if you want more speed, you need a front-mount hydraulic pump, give you more GPM. Seem to think it is or was an option.

Please don"t take this the wrong way, but how slow is slow? The hydraulic system on these Massey tractors is not known to be quick! I would suggest a flow test before parting with much money, you may find that it is how it is.

It uses the tractors hydraulics I have had other tractors like this one and they was faster . Which makes me believe the filter is plugged up.

You're only about 4 1/2 GPM's at full throttle. It depends on the size of the cylinders, if the hyd's are set right, the temperature, etc.
