MF 135 - Hydraulics Operations

Hi everyone...

Thanks to all those that responded to our previous inquiry on the "merits" of a MF 135!! The astounding positive feedback has really helped our decision making process a great deal.

Never-the-less as it appears(crossed fingers) that we"ll soon be the proud new owners of a MF 135 I thought I would check in on one question regarding the hydraulic controls.

The tractor we looked at has remote hydraulics with the control box and two control levers between the drivers legs. To the right is what I believe to be the Up/Down control and Draft Control for the lift.

How should the controls work in a situation like this??

Probably easier for me to say how they"re working and ask if this is correct or needs adjustment - etc.

The lift is controlled by flipping(open or closed) the right control box lever. Setting the Up/Down adjustment to the drivers right(either up or down) and using the left control box lever to control the position of the hydraulics.

Does this seem right??

I had assumed that the control box levers were strictly for controlling remote hydraulics and that the up/down adjustment would control the lift.(as it typically does on other tractors)

I haven"t run a MF 135 or a tractor with remote hydraulics before so I could certainly be mistaken.

Any thoughts / insight?

If this doesn"t seem right any thoughts on possible adjustments and troubleshooting?

All the best...thanks everybody!
