    Default L 3400 steering jerky

    My L-3400 seems to have developed a jerkiness in the steering and somewhat in the loader operations. It happened almost overnight Hydraulic fluid level is OK but has some bubbles in it. Any suggestions. I have had it for 7 years and not a lot of use.

    I would look at changing the filter, and maybe the kubota hydro fluid. And grease the whole thing, there is a grease fitting for the steering shaft.

    Thanks for the reply. I think I have found the problem. Appears to be leaking hydraulic suction hose. Saw a similar problem on another thread.
