    I just got done putting my Deere 4310 away from plowing. I noticed on the front left wheel that there some green fluid on the inside of the wheel. I would assume that it is leaking hub fluid. Anybody know to rememdy this or is it off to the dealer? 377 hard hours and this is my first "real" problem. Other than this the parking brake light stays on. I have to say that I'm very happy with this tractor.:usflag:

    Its probably the wheel seal if it is you will lose baring oil and the bearings will warp and seize so if you are not sure take it to the dealer for a looksee just to be safe. Plus its less expensive than needing a new set of bearings.

    Sounds like a plan.

    I'm pretty sure my warranty had more than expired. It magically stopped leaking, but it's still going to go in anyway just for a checkup.

    Let me guess FTD, you do a lot of loader work without a rear counterweight correct?

    Bingo. Very uneven ground too. I knew it was a matter of time. Building a rear counterweight has been on the top of the list since I've bought the tractor. Somehow I still havn't done it yet.:cry:

    I did the same thing. I now have my rear tires filled & use a counterweight as well if im doing super heavy material like wet loam or stone dust. Live & learn right?
