Some common problems that require repairs on a Ford 2000 model tractor include play on worn hydraulic pumps, tie-rod wear and loose rear hubs. These problems generally affect tractors that have been in use since their production years.
The hydraulic pumps were built to be reliable, but over time they break down. In order to repair the pump, it must be replaced.
Tie-rods are special components that connect the steering rack to the wheels. When these are damaged, the wheels will often knock or have a hard time turning. Repair requires replacement of the tie rods.
The rear hubs are responsible for spinning the wheels. If the bearings in the hubs are too worn, the wheel will not spin. The trailer will not function until the hub is replaced.
