Evening all

Just recently on cold start up 3rd and 4th or 7th and 8th do not engage properly. Stationary, an with the brakes off, you can feel the tractor just bite then drop drive. After about five minutes or so it will generally work OK. Oddly the delay, in the past when cold, was 2nd or 6th, but only momentarily. The accumulator was replaced not that long ago.

Thanks

Seen ep's post but not sure of an answer!
Thinking maybe a sticky solenoid that comes right when warmed up a bit. But then there would likely be an error code too...
Perhaps one for @forblue ?

I changed the accumulator at least 3 years ago as there tended to be a delay from 5th to 6th. It made no difference. The local indi ran a pressure check, which was fine at the time. The hydraulics are not particularly slow and the spool tips a trailer easily.

One local know all (😂) reckons I might have been too mean with the oil changes but it did have a full change a few years back and only does a 2-300 hrs per year. As a fully fledged Ford, it has naturally continuous flow type oil change program 🙄. The filters were changed earlier this year.

A man has pleaded guilty at Newtownards Magistrates’ Court to waste offences relating to a bonfire next to the electrical sub-station on the Circular Road in Newtownards, Co. Down.

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.
