My 3 point hitch is not working right. I have to reve the tractor up to about 2200 rpm to get the 3pt hitch to raise. There is only one pump and the rest of the tractor is working properly. The fluid is topped up and doesn't appear to be leaking. I think it might the seal in the hydro cylinders. what is in involved in fixing that. My tractor is a Kubota l4740.

All the other functions work right? Loader, remotes, steering, etc

Have you checked any knobs or controls for 3pt hitch raise/lower speed or draft controls?

The three point hitch was not used because I had the backhoe on for 6 months. The raise lever must of got bumped because it was at 2 instead of 0 and may have been in that position for a bit. I wonder would that have caused constant strain on the lift arms cylinders (there are 2 of them) causing a failure. Also I might be the value that can be adjusted to fast or slow. Could any of these cause the problem.

A very common problem is the 3pt hitch speed control

I have turned the raise and lower speed knob. When turned down it doesn't seem to what to raise at all. I have it set to the fastest. The fastest is still takes about 15 seconds at 2200 rpm to raise up. I have no draft controls.
