    Default 4344 HST issue

    Had the 4344 HST for over 3 years, and last year noticed a shudder in the tractor in 3rd on the highway. Did a transmission fluid change (300 hours) and noticed no change.
    Over the last week or two it feels like its not as fast on the road as it use to be; the top end speed has decreased. Am now researching how the HST operates, but does anyone have any input?

    not to revive a dead horse; but thought I would close this with a follow up on the high speed issue-- seems as tho the trhottle cable had slipped at the linkage to the fuel control. easy fix, and yet I worried about it for a year....
