    Default 450 C dozer trouble on incline

    My 450 C dozer feels like it kicks out of gear when I'm on an incline, either up or down.
    On the level ground, everything seems fine.

    The problem didn't exist last time I used it a five months ago.

    I know some of the Deere dozers can have issues if nose down on an incline. I think this has been resolved on the newer ones.

    check your hydraulic oil level, this will happen if the level isnt quite high enough.

    Just now got back in town. Yep, the transmission fluid was low.
    All is good to go now.

    Thanks for the info.
