Hi I've got a mf 300 seems to have no power when it comes to the hydraulic side any body no if there any way of turning the power up on or where I would look to adjust the motors

Does the machine lose power when it gets warmed up? Have you checked the hydraulic oil level? If the machine loses power when it gets warm it could be a worn hydraulic pump.

Hi,
I'm afraid I don't know the MF 300.
Could be a relief valve problem. The only way to be sure is a pressure test.
Are the hydraulics only slow when not under load :?: Do the hydraulics whine when under load :?:
Fred.

When we had all the rain I got it stuck up to her nuts now the ground dried up I've tried getting it out and it will rock back and forward a couple of feet but that's it the tracks are not continuing to spin oil levels are all good I'm tried finding manuals for it but no joy I could do with finding a big winch to pull out with but with current climate money a bit thin on the ground and I'd rather get her out under her own steam
Many thanks for the reply

Desmond,
Try lifting it up at the front & putting logs or wooden blocks under the tracks.The closer to level you are,the better chance of driving out.
The 300 has a Torque Convertor /powershift drive system.You might have a steering adjustment or wear issue.
The Operator manual will show adjustments.
steeringclutch.com has a steering parts diagram on their website.
There are quite a few manuals available if you do a Google Search. MF also made a 300 series farm tractor...don't get them mixed up.

A member here Als Garage might have info & a parts book on file.He did some posting about an MF300 a few years back.

Jim
