    Check the wire for the temp gauge going to the block. I think its on the right side of the motor towards the front. When I got mine it wasn't hooke up. As far as heavier implements, I think I have heard that before. You have steped up into a beast of a tractor. It takes a lot to make it notice something trying to hold it back. I don't believe King Kutter makes implements heavy enough for the 4530.

I caught the top of a large rock with the end of the blade. The tractor didn't seem to notice that it was hooked on a rock the size of a small car, it just kept on going. The blade was a brand new king kutter I had bought last winter to use clearing snow with my 2615. Since the winter was so mild, I never needed to use it.
    I guess it's time to consider heavier implements.
    On a different note, I did notice that the bucket angle would drop and I had to occasionally rotate it back up. I did the same thing with my 2615 but didn't need to adjust the angle nearly as often.
    So far, I'm pretty impressed with the 4530.

    Happened to me, too, with a smaller tractor and a 6' grader blade. The pin keeping the blade at a fixed angle had sheared off from a rock strike. Now I keep a few extra pins in the toolbox.

    Steve, Don't feel bad I did something similar to a County line 7' landscape rake. I was stacking topsoil and forgot it was back there, when I was done I noticed I had managed to bend the center of the cross beam down 4". Never felt a thing.

    Thanks for the info on the temp sensor. I'll check it out, hope that's all it is.

    I've had my 4530 for three months now. The temp gauge still does not work. The sensor has been replaced and the dealer has ordered a new gauge cluster.
    When new, the hydralics for the FEL stuttered pretty bad. The fluid level was barely registering on the dip stick. Added fluid and problem solved. The front diff was low as well, didn't even register on the stick.
    Other than these issues, the tractor is great.
    I can't believe the difference in capability going from the 2615 to the 4530. I think I made the right choice.
    Thanks to all on the forum who provided input and helped with my decision.
    Best,
    Steve
