Montana 5740 Posted by Andrew on 03/18/2010

Sticks in 2nd gear. The dealer showed me how to get it unstuck but no indication on how to fix it. Loader hydraulics seem weak.

PTO manual switch only works intermittently. Engine RPM has to be really high to get 540 PTO RPM.

Exhaust stack blows out a spray of soot particle on startup - usually all over the side of my house or back in my face if the wind is right.
