My question concerns a knocking noise coming from the front end when using MFWD on my 5310 (syncro-shift) and using my loader to move dirt. When I approach a dirt pile and start to load the bucket, I hear a knock as the front end digs into the pile. I am getting a slight amount of slippage on the front wheels as I fill the bucket and the noise seems to happen as the loader torques up under strain and I am slightly moving forward. Then as I try to break out the load in reverse, I once again hear the knock. It sounds like the differential locking the front end and shifting torque from side to side. The noise is pronounced on the left side hub/wheel. Is this knocking normal? This tractor is new and only has 50 hours. I have been hearing this noise since day one. The front end seems to work fine just makes a knocking noise when under strain of dig or breakout. The noise is louder if I don't let the engine come back to a slow idle before trying to reverse out of the pile. Any help determining what this noise is would be sincerely appreciated. Thanks, Dave
