    Cub 5234D

    Default my Cub 5234 D is braking left and right

    Hi this is my first post. I don't know were to begin but here goes. In the last few months every thing on my Cub is breaking I will list all the problems in the order that they failed and maybe you can help me with them one by one. And no I can't afford a new tractor. #1 My low range quit working, it now only stays in high range. #2 The dif lock quit working. #3 Four wheel drive quit working. #4 And the hydraulics have been getting weaker as time goes on. Meaning you can now kill the motor going up to steep a hill and the loader that once could pick up a big snap-on roll box as a hard time picking up a bucket of snow. Everything moves very slow even empty. And yes I changed fluid and filters. By the way Cub Cadet is of no help they act like they want nothing to do with this tractor they made. I did buy it new and it has only 150 hours on it.. Any help would be great. Thanks.

    Sounds like you need to test your hydraulic pressure. The hydraulic pump could be going out. You can buy a gauge and make a tester that will just plug into your auxiliary quick connect. Then activate it and see what it says. I am assuming that your fluids are good and you have changed the filter first.

    Unfortunately, I can't help on the hydraulics, but I would check with your dealer to see if this a problem with other ones, then file a complaint with the Better Business Bureau !
    The driveshaft on mine snapped off at 300 hours, then again today at 530. The first time I took in it to the dealer, he had already fixed four of them, so I used that to convince CC to own up to their POS design. The dealer himself agreed it wasn't' the best thing they ever made, I should have EBayed it as they suggested.
    If the dealer can't fix it, try a transmission shop maybe - good luck.

    I have heard that those tractors were not very reliable.
