Kris: you need to be more specific describing these hydraulic problems.

First thing to do is get a manual. I&T publishes manuals for this series/family of tractors (460,560,660,606, and I-2606)and are well worth the money.

Since this tractor is an unknown (recent purchase), dump the hydraulic fluid and S-can the hydraulic filter. The hydraulic pump could be starving for oil on the suction side--easiest thing to do here are filter and oil.

The loader raises slowly? Is this some huge aftermarket thing that someone has slung on the 606 and not a good match for the tractor? What I'm getting at is, are the cylinders so huge it takes a long time to fill them? Revving the motor will increase GPM output of the pump (up to its design limit) and cycling speed of the loader attachment, so this does not indicate any bad condition.

Does the loader have any substantial power/lifting capability? This will indicate if the system is allowing pressure to develop. Does the hydraulic system make any noise--whine, sqealing, chattering?

The 606 has the same C-221 engine as our 460. I have found the 460 to be very reasonable on fuel consumption even when giving it a good workout. I suggest that your 606 has a problem.

Give us a full report.
