I am trying to...

I am trying to bushhog and my the PTO on my Kubota L3010 runs very slow, is this a hygrolic problem?

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the complete model and serial number of your machine?

Model is L3010, not sure of the serial number

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing this yourself? What have you tried so far?

Trying to fix it myself, I have added hydrolic fluid but no change, I have checked the cable that engages the PTO and it is fine. I do not see anything that would keep it from running at full RPMs

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the agriculture mechanic to know before I connect you?

I was bus hogging some tall heavy grass and some extremely small trees. I noticed the problem when I was bush hogging some heavy grass when I heard a squealing noise and the PTO went to an extremely slow speed.
