Customer Question

I have a 1999 it14g that was vandalized I got it running and it steers and the arms go up and down. it wont go in forward or reverse. I did connect the forward and reverse solenoid coils to the battery nothing. there is a chatter on the hydraulic lines that go to and return from the hyd filters..there is plenty of hyd oil..what is the bare minimum I need to hook up to get this thing out of where it is.many of the wires were cut
JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Heavy Equipment Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Is there anything else the Heavy Equipment Mechanic should be aware of?

as my original question states I'm having a problem getting a caterpillar it14g front loader to work. I do have the engine working and the steering and the arms but not the forward and reverse . it has a hydrostatic system for movement . I did put current to the solenoid's at the pump on the engine and I know about the lockout valve connected to the brakes. what I need to know is what is the bare minimum that this machine needs to make it move so as I can get it to a place that it can be repaired. my experience is that I have a degree in marine diesel which gives me knowledge in the overall systems but not on this machine. I do have to leave now and will not be able to return to this till tomorrow I look forward to your answer
