Customer Question
I have a jcb backhoe...
I have a jcb backhoe 214 series 3, was digging a hole with rear bucket and as I was unloading a scoop the was a noise from the front of the tractor and I lost all hydrolic power. cant move anything. the engine still works runs. I checked for any leaks and did not see anything. there is plenty of hydrolic oil in the tank.
I think it may be the pump. any advice or info of how to trouble shoot the problem would be helpful.
thanks, David

Check the pump drive shaft between the crankshaft pulley and the pump. The drive shaft may have stripped out.
