Overloaded? Maybe, but it should not have quit. Could the cylinder rod be bent? Or the cylinder could have blown internal seals. If you loosen hoses to the cylinder, do you have oil to the cylinder?

Cyclinder is not bent

Is it getting fluid? If it is getting fluid, figure out which hose would be pressure, then remove the opposite hose on the cylinder, and pressure up the cylinder. If oil comes out the open hole, the cylinder has internal leakage.

Everything else works but but the digging bucket wont curl. Extented boom , swing , up and down boom works
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 year ago.

Will bucket collapse if you pressure it with boom? If so, cylinder is bad.

Try swapping relief valves from one of the other functions. Each valve section has it's own relief valve.
