Post by Casedb1494 » Tue Oct 09, 2018 10:11 pm

I've a case dB 1494 hydrashift it is a working tractor pulling a feeder wagon on a daily basis. I set going one end of a feed passage and it lost drive half way down the passage is there anything simple worth looking at? It's always been more responsive in 1st and 2nd than 3rd and 4th but has never lost drive before. Any help would be much appreciated thanks will.

I know nothing about your problem but I would start with the basics.

Oil level in the transmission and a filter change. Make sure there is no water in the system (milky oil) and see how you go.

Loosing all four Hydra Shift gears is almost impossible. The reason for all HS gears missing is most likely a faulty main clutch, not a fault in the Hydra Shift.

Oh thanks guys hadn't even considered the main clutch just blamed the hydrashift the clutch wasn't slipping at all and worked perfect but sounds like it could be the problem.
