/ NX5510 - No hydraulics after filter and fluid change #61
I know you said you used all Kioti filters, however, I had this happen to me once before on a Cub Cadet I was working on. It will be a slight nuisance, but drain fluid and put old filter on and try it. If it works, you just might have gotten a bad filter. Better than chasing your tail "looking" for solutions. Good luck.I've done a fair number of fluid changes and this is the first time I've encountered this. Loader jerks a few inches and that's it. PTO spins, but it doesn't seem very vigorous. Steering isn't happening (no power).
I'd over-filled a bit so I removed fluid to just under full.
Haven't run for more than a couple of minutes (total) for fear of damaging something. All Kioti filters. No issues changing anything. I am using semi-synthetic fluid, spec'd better than Kioti.
How best to work through this?
Like oil conversations, filling filters prior to install is highly contentious. I have alway filled my filters prior to install. For one installed horizontally, stand upright, fill till full, let sit for a minute or so allowing the filter media to absorb fluid. Once absorbed, you can cleanly install horizontally without fluid loss. Wet media vs dry is always better and pushes any air out.I don't know about your tractor but some of the older tractors and equipment I've worked on over the years with horizontal filters dad a plug in the top of the filter housing, to fill the filters after installing
