Haudraulick problems on John Deere 3350

Try disconnecting a hose from the steer cylinder. Place the hose end in a 5 gal. bucket and see if you have flow from steer motor. turn steering wheel to the opposite direction of open hose fitting to check for steer cylinder piston leakage. Piston leakage will pressurize both directions of steer cylinder at the same time resulting in no steer. Be careful not to overflow your bucket. Reuse your oil if bucket is clean

Why won't my john deere sst16 spin steer not steer in reverse?

I copied this right out of the operators manual for this machine, and it is a zero turn machine as well

" NOTE: Operating the mower while backing up is strongly discouraged. The Reverse Implement Option should be used only when operating another attachment or when the operator deems it necessary to reposition the machine with the mower engaged. "

an educated guess says they deactivated the steering in reverse
also I hope you have a supply of air filters for your steering valves for this model as ive replaced a few already for folks that have these

My John Deere SST18 tractor will not turn left or right once I engage the PTO on the mower deck. As soon as I turn the PTO off, the tractor turns just fine. Any ideas/suggestions that I might try to fix...

Some more details would help. Your tractor has a combined electronic and vacuum controlled steering mechanism. Some people have reported your issue just because of a low voltage issue, and replacing the battery fixed it. In other cases there are two micro controller switches under the fender deck on the right side. These switches should both be able to be depressed and "click" and retract with a healthy solid feel. If not replace the switch. There are also 2 vacuum 'pots' and a vacuum system associated with your steering control. A vacuum leak may also be a culprit (although in my head that might be more constant). Does the steering work in reverse?
