2820D advice

Postby billy.beavers » Wed Nov 25, 2020 10:18 pm

Hello All, my name is Billy and I just purchased a older Yanmar 2820D that turns out isn’t working appropriately. When I tested it out while purchasing it, I noticed that the hydraulics were very slow to respond. The previous owner clearly didn’t perform regular maintenance and stated that he had put the wrong hydraulic oil in causing the hydraulics to run slow until it warmed up. I picked it up today and the bushhog that I also purchased was already loaded on the trailer that I borrowed to pull home. The tractor was never able to pick up the bushhog dispite it running on the trailer for at least 40 mins. I plan on checking the obvious first (oil level, and possibly change out the fluid and clean the filter) but are there any other things that I should look for as tale-tale signs of the core of the problem? I appreciate your help in advance!

Your 2820 has a spin on hydraulic filter as well as a suction strainer located in the transmission sump. Correct fluid is definitely important. https://www.hoyetractor.com/PROD/HF-1.htm

Your suction screen is located under the pto shaft behind a 3 bolt flange. Don't know just how much fluid the 2820 holds but it will be on up toward 5 gallons so be prepared.

I appreciate your advice! I will take care of that first. Do you happen to know what the hydraulic oil spec is for it? I would like to put the appropriate oil back in. As soon as I can, I plan on buying the manuals for it, but that will likely be after Christmas because the parts, owners, service manuals are over $150 shipped.

I used Tractor Supply Traveler brand in my old 2002D and continue to use it in a Bobcat hydrastat. Good stuff. On sale right now. https://www.tractorsupply.com/tsc/produ ... _vc=-10005

I have used the Walmart brand Super tech also. https://www.walmart.com/ip/Super-Tech-H ... xoQAvD_BwE

I used traveler universal from TSC in my 2820D. I purchased a 5 gallon bucket and a gallon just incase it wasn't enough. It's a messy job, but I elevated the frontend with the loader before draining the transmission. The hydraulics are a little slow initially in cold weather (below 20), but everything works after a few seconds.
