koboma :

What usually happens on skid steers (this is skidsteer on tracks) is the hydraulic pressure switch gives false signal and shuts off the hydraulics. It is the hydraulic charge pressure switch that needs to be changed. I bet with new switch, the machine will function. Case and New Holland have this problem and they keep changing switches to find a good one. The switch can NOT be bypasses, it has to be in the system. With only 200 hrs, you might still be covered under the warranty.??

koboma :

On skid steer switch is usually at the hydraulic oil filter mounting, but I can not find filter on this model!
