You could have a weak pump or bad seals in the main control valve.

Have you checked the pump pressures for all the circuits? (If so, please post all the pressures recorded.)

Are pressures only low in the boom down and steering?

When was the last service done to this hydraulic system?

Are you certain it is full of oil? (Sight tube can become very dark and hard to see if oil level is correct.)

What is the full machine serial number?
