Diff lock on 3600

Should you have to hold the diff lock down for the rear diffs to stay locked on a 3600? My Zetor locks for a short time and then releases. But you have to keep your foot on the diff lock on the 3600 or it unlocks. Is this the way the 3600 is suppose to function or might I have a problem? The manual just tells you to push to engage diff locking.

If you are in a situation where the diff lock is really needed (i.e. there is more torque going out one wheel than the other) then the pedal will stay down automatically. As soon as the torque between the two equalizes, then it should pop back up. Bottom line is: in most cases you'll have to hold it down.

What happens is the right tire will start spinning. I press the diff lock and both start to pull until I let off then the right starts spinning again. But if I hold it down then they both turn until I let off. I have filled both tires with water/af and have installed two donut weights to each rear wheel. That helped cut down on the spinning.

Evidently there must be some bouncing going along with the spinning which allows the torque to reduce just long enough to allow the return spring to pop it out. Best thing to do is leave it in full time when you go through the tough spots.

Today's Featured Article - A City Guy's First Tractor - by Fred Hambrecht. After living in apartments in Atlanta for more years than I care to remember, the wife and I decided to move to the country. Humming "Green Acres is the place for me..." we purchased a 29 acre tract about 60 miles south of Atlanta. Next came the house, I could talk about that ordeal for another two weeks... But, I want to talk about my tractor! We didn't even own a lawnmower, and all of a sudden we had enough grass to feed all the starving children of the bovine world. Naturally, I talked ...
