Re: X540 doesn’t stop

I have a X500 which I purchased new and it acts the very same way. My previous tractor was a 175 Hydro and when you would move the hydro control it would stop instantly. In fact, it would even slide the tires if you moved the lever too quickly. I never ever needed to use the brake pedal or parking brake on the 175 because unless you pushed in the bypass lever it would not move. The X500 on the other hand rolls to a stop more gently and will in fact roll away on a hill if you don't set the parking brake.
