More new tractor problems

We bought a new Kubota LX2610 HSD with front Loader.
The controls are very touchy.
No matter how hard you try to ease into it, it's dangerously jumpy.
Do you have any suggestions on calming it down?

The dealership said they would send someone out to look at it. But so far I am not impressed.

I would have thought they would have appeared to know what the issue is.
A friend bought the same tractor, same issues.
Another guy posted having the same issue also.
I can't abide having issues on a new machine.

A friend that works at the New Holland dealer operated it for a couple minutes and you could tell by the look on his face that it surprised him too.
He was fast to comment about it.
Thanks.

The lx3310 i run is touchy as well but not necessarily much more than the other small tractors ive run. The simplest solution is just going to be flow control valves in line with the loaders quick couplers.

Thanks. I guess the only other small tractor I have experience with is a JD955. It was definitely not touchy. It was slow. I'd rather have slow than this.
This feels dangerous.

Can you reduce RPM's to slow fluid flow?
How does it act at idle speed?
Good Luck!

This was at idle speed and slightly above idle speed.
We'd have to slow down idle speed to get slower.
Thanks.

You could buy something like this and set it to the speed you want.


Or you could trade up to a Branson. My loader speed is perfect. ;)
Thanks. I was wondering if they had something like that built-in.

Seems we had an old Ford - it wasn't old then - that had some sort of flow control valve.

Or maybe it was something we put on the Schwartz loader on the 1963 JD4010
