Customer Question
My John Deere 870...

My John Deere 870 has a 80 loader. I have a snow plow mounted and the middle pistons which normally dump the material bucket when it is mounted are openning when I lift the snow plow. This is causing the snow plow blade to fall over forward. It has always remained perpendicular to the ground before.

Mechanic's Assistant: 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.

Hi,let's see if we can work together to get to the root of your problem! will try my best to help!

Will the cylinders hold position if you just pick up the blower and kill the engine of the tractor? If not, one of the bucket cylinders has internal leakage.
