  1. 5488 series pto

    I have not done anything to the draft lever yet. I have read on here that it does have effects on the lift arms. Would this make a difference in the fact that the tractor will not engage in any gear, has no brakes, or power steering?
  2. 5488 series pto

    Pto does turn. Hydraulics do work. I can work the hydraulics levers back and forth and the steering will work for a few seconds. The lift arms have been a mystery since I bought the tractor. They will move up and down about two inches. I have adjusted linkages to see if that was the problem but nothing changed. I just got it back home yesterday from the field the pto went out in. The plan was to repair that over the winter.
  3. 5488 series pto

    Finally got the pto repaired and back in today. Filled with 25 gals of hydraulic fluid. Cranked tractor and let run for a while to get fluid moving. Finally we started driving it back home. Got about 10 miles down the road and lost all brake power, steering, and oil light came on. Sentry light as well. Will not go into any gear at all. Tractor will not move. Could it be air in the hydraulic system, what would be the cause on this? Tractor data says it holds around 40 gals of fluid. Dipstick shows it as over full. At one point there was a lot of whining coming from the pump.
  4. 5x88 test harnesses gets another one

    Delta88 was the 5288 in the sale at Webb, MS back in the spring? I looked at one there. They would not let anyone drive it. The guy cleaning it up said there was only one guy that could drive it and I would have to wait til he got there.
  5. 5488 series pto

    Pto shaft came out of rear ended while baling hay. Gonna remove pto chunk tomorrow. I have only had the tractor since March, so I'm learning as I go about this tractor series. Is rebuilding the pto like the 66 and 86 series? While making this repair is there a way to check or something to check for while it's out that would keep the lift arms from working. They will move up and down about two to four inches but nothing else. The hydraulics outlets all work fine. Any and all info greatly appreciated.

  7. 5488 hydraulic problem

    I have had this very same problem. Mine would even kick out and sentry light would come on when turning to the left each time. If I went up a slope while pulling the baler it would do it. Hydraulic fluid was low. Has not done it again since adding fluid today. And it was not very low. Steering is not jerky either anymore.

    Thanks.
  9. 5488 steering

    5488 steering has gotten hard. I have not had tractor long. While baling today it got harder to steer as the day went on. I did notice that when pressing the brake to which ever direction I was turning that the steering wheel would turn easier as it should. Would this be just a filter problem like on 66 series at times?

    Thanks for all the help. I really appreciate you all in here.
  11. 5488 blow by

    Recently purchased a 5488. While idling tractor does not show much blow by. Hooked a 21ft disc to it today to break some ground. Tractor seems to give a lot of blow by smoke once engine is put under a load. Is this normal? I have heard mechanics around here say these tractors had more blow by than the 66-86 series tractors. What gear do most of you run these tractors in while breaking ground. Tractor seems strong and pulls good compared to what I'm used to. Blow by smoke concerns me. Thanks in advance.
  12. 5088 hydraulics

    Yes they are going up and down. I pull lever all the way back as far as it will go. It will actually hit the plastic back that the lever comes up thru. Arms only raise about half way up and stops.

    Well I changed the tips to some older more used tips and everything work fine as for the auxiliary valves go. 🙌 Three point arms are still not raising up all the way. What's the advice on that?
  14. 5088 hydraulics

    I finally hit some time to work on the 5488. The pressure released in the hydraulic lines. Finally got the lines unhooked. Tried in the other set of outlets and had the same problem. I pulled the dipstick to check fluid level again. It sounds like it is sucking air when dipstick is pulled out. I have not changed filters yet. Any suggestions? When engaging the hydraulic levers it does put a strain on engine as it should.

    That's the next thing I was gonna try mike. It seems like the lines have pressure on them therefore making hard to unhook. Now that it is down I hope I can get them unhooked and try the other outlet today.
