    Default John Deere 305 Loader

    Hello from Sinbad,
    I've got a new JD 3065 fitted with the 305 loader on a permanent basis.
    The problem is the "Droop"
    The bucket drops at a measured 5.5mm per minute...anyone got a fix suggestion please (excluding Viagra of course !)

    One or both cylinders probably need rebuilding, its best to do them in pairs anyway.

    The 305 can have up to 14.75 inches of bucket droop per hour without being out of spec. That is on the order of 6 mm per minute. Also true of the 300 loader in some configurations.
