Hooked up the cutter on saturday and the 3pt wouldnt lift it. It goes up and down without weight. When you shut the tractor off with the hitch up it drops down in a few seconds.
PTO works fine and the fluid level is correct,needs a change though. Any hints on what it might be?

Sounds like an internal leak in the system, drain the oil down to the bottom bolt hole on the right hand side cover, remove the cover, then with the implement on the 3pt try to raise it , with a flashlight look inside for leaks, oil streaming down from top left indicates leaking lift cylinder, top right is standpipe O ring failure (can also be at bottom of pipe where it goes into pump), major oil swirling at bottom left front is a problem in the pump.
Let us know what you find
