    MT573cps hydraulic whining question

    I had to order a strap wrench from auto store to fit the hyd filter. It was a beast to get off. In fact I couldn't get it to break loose. My sons couldn't get it off either. Finally had a shop mechanic come out. Mechanic had to remove back right wheel, use my strap wrench and a 3' cheater bar to...

    MT573cps hydraulic whining question

    Thanks for PSS/filter change as a whine solution. Probably have that issue at some point. I use the TC-40 with forks, 6' shredder and box blade. Have other implements sized for it but those 3 are the ones I use 99% of the time. Also, take it into the woods to clear trails etc TimberFarm, let us...

    I feel your pain. My original dealer had a crummy looking shop. But, they would answer the phone and I think their mechanic/tech was fairly competent. Until they went out of business. I do most of my own maintenance. Before they closed shop, I bought a LS Filter Pack that was supposed to have...

    Sounds like your alarm warnings are working fine. The alarm warning I was getting wasn't just a few beeps, it was a constant shrill alarm. The tractor worked fine (except for the constant alarm and flashing dash). However the shrill alarm is there to let you know something isn't right. Anyway it...

    MT 573 Issues

    I'm glad yours has made it 275 hrs with no issues. i think finding a competent dealer (that's not 150 miles away) will be trying. The tractor was hauled to the current "dealer" on the 29th. So it's been there a few days shy of 2 weeks. There is no choice but to just wait it out. I'll post when...

    MT573cps hydraulic whining question

    A slow speed sharp turn will get my MT 573 to whine, but whine goes away as wheels straighten. Mine does not slow down while lifting or adjusting the bucket to curl. Hope that helps. Are you using the throttle or pedal? I also own a NH TC40-D and its been a great tractor. Good luck.

    MT 573 Issues

    Codes: 110200 & F01. First, the dealer sent his mechanic to my farm with a laptop for OBD. (I agreed to pay the trip charge). However, he couldn't access the program needed because he didn't have a password. (wasted trip). Then they got a "update" from LS. Ran the OBD. The problem was the...

    Thank you for the welcome. Considering several options. Yes, I have dates, times, names, email/text strings etc documented. Yes sir, a lot of good info on this site. The kick in the gut here is that I like the tractor. But I can't have this much money tied up in a tool that doesn't work or...

    MT 573 Issues

    Yes sir, frustrating experience would be a understatement. First time in to be repaired....it wasn't. Second time in to be repaired .....was as if the 3 Stooges had taken over. But I'll admit they did get the "alarm" to stop screaming. Now that the fuel tank has a leak, I'm afraid I may not get...

    I have been a lurker. Yes, a lowly lurker off and on, for quite awhile. Joining now seeking info or advice regarding a particular issue. Maybe you guys can help. The back story: I bought a MT 573cps in late Nov 2021. I put it to work immediately moving, scraping and hauling dirt, rock and...
