I recently purchased an 07 5303 with 158 hours on it & have noticed when i have the 7' 3 pt bush hog hooked up, it constantly bumps to keep it in the lifted position which is very annoying.
One other thing i've noticed after running it for a hour or so & when i lift the bush hog up, it sticks in the raised position & will not lower unless i hit the joystick for the FEL.
I had them add a SCV in case i went with a pull unit or needed it for use with another piece of equipment.

I thought i would ask here before i trudge off to the dealer & talk to their mechanic to see if anyone has experienced any of these symptoms.

Thanks,
Ronnie

Double check your fluid level it could be low. The reason i say that is on my 5203 it's hard to see the level on the stick because the oil is so clear. I've had mine stick once before when i left weight on it overnight thought i let it all the way down and didn't had to jump on the bushog to get it to go down.

I checked it cold the other day & it read full. I will leave the hitch up when i'm done w/o an implement on it & i notice the arms drop some, not all the way after it has set over night.
I'll run it Wednesday when i'm off & check the fluid after it warms up a bit. TH
he constant bumping of the lift just annoys the heck out of me while going from the barn to the field or one field to another, it dosen't seem like it should hunt that much.
Maybe i should shut the valve off by the seat during transport, the manual stated something about that.

Put draft control lever (B), forward when you DO NOT want rockshaft to adjust automatically to draft load, such as attaching implement to tractor.

CAUTION: To prevent unexpected movement of rockshaft, place draft control lever (B), in a full forward position before attaching an implement.

Use position control lever (A) to control hitch movement and depth. Position control should be used for the following applications:

TRANSPORT of implements and end of field turn-around. Position control lever should be moved fully rearward (C) for transport for both load and non-load sensing usage.

CONSTANT DEPTH of implements on level terrain and for non- ground engaging implements such as spreaders or sprayers. Place position control lever at depth desired (D).

FLOAT operation for implements with skids or depth gauge wheels designed to carry full implement weight. Push both levers all the way forward (E) so implement can follow the ground contour.

A-Rockshaft Position Control Lever
B-Rockshaft Draft Control Lever
C-Position Control Lever In Rearward Position
D-Position Control Lever In Desired Depth Position
E-Position Control Lever And Draft Control Lever In Float Position
