I have a BX1860 with broom attached. The hydraulic lever

Customer Question

I have a BX1860 with broom attached. The hydraulic lever will not work meaning will not pick brush up or swing left or right. All hoses are connected correctly. Is there a hydraulic reservoir and needs fluid?

Hydraulic reservoir is the transmission, unless the attach has a separate pump. Is unit hydrostat? If so, does transmission work ok? Was broom attachment just installed? Go back and remove the main pressure hose on the control valve and reattach it. Assuming it is quick connect. Next be sure the joy stick control is moving the valve spools.
