Hi my name is***** will be glad to try to help. Check both the control valve for debris and proper operation for the bucket and the relief valve cartridge in that circuit for damaged o rings and debris. what have you checked so far and what is your serial number? Is the bucket loose indicating possible internal cylinder problem or is it locked in place?

Dan,S/N -###-##-#### ***** machine does everything but "uncurl" the bucket. I noticed that the joystick that controls the uncurl movement has a lot of play in it.

Check under the boot and see if the plungers are sticking and not returning to the contact plate. That could cause that function not to get pilot pressure from the controls since they are sticking. Let me know
