My Kubota bx23s with about 110 hours of use, sometimes when hoeing, I can hear what seems to be a growling type noise, not very loud and only lasts a short time.It does not affect the operation.I don’t hear it when I only use the FEL. The HST fluid level is fine.I have informed my dealer of this.Has anyone else experienced this or am I just hearing things?
- Since you mentioned that you only hear it when you operate the backhoe, it is most likely that what you hear is the activation of the pressure relief valve.
- The moment you hear this, does the movement you are trying to make slow down or stop?That could be a clue, but the pressure that opens the pressure relief valve may be just what you need, and the change in speed may not be apparent.
- Maybe you could try moving something immovable, like a big stump or something, and see if you hear the same sound.
