Question ? About lift on tractor

The hitch arms on my tractor want go down on there own unless something is hooked to them. When I unhooked the harrows to hook up the bushhog I had to stand on them to make them go down. Any ideas? Nothing is leaking and it has plenty of hydraulic fluid in it. Everything else works normally front end loader, PTO etc. Is this just a sign of age or is something not right?

Should I close the valve and then open it back up?

Is your 3 point control in the float position?

I'll try it tomorrow I have to unhook the bushhog to see, the weight of the mower makes it fall. No I don't have a diagram of it just the owners Manuel but it is vague. It is a mahindra C35 they only made that model for 4 years. Full size engine,tranny and rearend with compact frame. Been a great little machine. This is a manageable problem I just don't want it to muff something up worse.

Nope, mine is older it has draft arm that you can set to a certain depth, I have tried it in several different position. Normally with both lift levers all the way down it will slowly drop on its own, but now I'm having to put my hands on the roll bar and my feet on the arms and force them down. With anything attached to it the weight makes it fall. It just makes swapping things a real pita.

All the filters and fluid was changed about a year ago but I don't use it everyday, I have only put about 30 hours on it since then.

sounds like a control lever issue. mechanism might have to be rebuilt or replaced. see if there is a model/serial number on valve assembly and check ebay/google for new unit and or an outfilt that can rebuild/exchange unit. usually on old units,the control assembly usually gunks up.

Yep and it is humid as it can be 6 months a year here. That can't help anything.
