My 5000 3 point seems to have an intermitant problem. Last night I lifted a big bale and it wouldnt let it down. I shut off tractor and started it back up and messed with the lever and it went down finally. It seems a little slower going up and seems that the lift arms go lower to the ground than they used to. Level of fluid is good and it is clean. Any ideas?

Check and make sure the Draft Control Lever on the passenger side of the rear end housing under your butt is in the up (position) control instead of down (draft). I'm hoping that's all it is.
