The problem started out when the tractor was used for a few hours,, the 3 point hitch arms would barely lift. Seemed like after the gear oil got hot. Then slowly got worse, 30 minutes of use, then after 10 minutes of use. So I changed out the gear oil, the 2 drain plugs on the bottom, and the ones on the rear axle hubs. I put 6 gallons of gear oil in, now the hydraulics will not lift the 3-pt hitch arms hardly at all. Do you have any ideas?

Sounds like a the filter screen is dirty. I cleaned mine on my L-185 right after I bought my tractor in April and it was all gunked up. My 3 point was slow on going up and after I cleaned it, The arms went up fast.

Sorry the scan was for my tractor and not the L245. This scan that is a attachment is the correct one for your tractor.

Your welcome, One further hint is and this is what I recommend is going to the Kubota dealer and picking up a new gasket or O-ring for the filter strainer. I am not sure which it is on a L-245 but it always ends up when you take the thing apart you need the new part and you do not have it. Thats what I did when I cleaned mine and yep I needed the new part. I saved the trip going in the middle of the repair by having it.

That will indeed do it! Did you give Ronnie a call at Tractor Smart? I would suggest keeping a spare strainer screen in case you collapse or damage the current one.

Well, I am glad you have your problem solved and a clean up and putting it together again and you are back in business. Sometimes things are easy to figure out if you got some experience and it happened to me with my filter also and I figured it out by asking my Kubota dealer and when I saw your post I knew about it.

Hello, I bought a Kubota L 225, I'll do a review on it, and I have some difficulty in locating the filter hidaulic, I have the manual L 245, and was wondering if the manual Kubota L245 f - dt kubota L245 - is equal to the Kubota L225 (2WD model with stick shift transmission). thanks

My Kubota L3400F has 4 seperate drain plugs on the bottom of the tractor to drain the shared hydraulic/transmission oil. One is located near the front, the second closer to the rear axle, and 3 & 4 are located on the rear axle in lower locations.
