Hi, It's Dan. Thanks for the request. Let me know the serial number of your machine. Try cutting the wheel all the way on one direction and hold it there at an idle or slightly above then go the other way. Also since you lost a lot of oil check your hydraulic filter for metal indicating a potential pump problem. Let me know and I will be glad to help you further. I am logging out for the night but check in periodically throughout the day.

serieno 11047. No problem with metal in filter. there is no hydraulics. warning light is on for oilpressure. although oil leaked out oil level is stiil on its full mark that means all pipes are empty and pump is not supplying
Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 7 years ago
Thanks for the update and information. So even after replacing the 20 liters of oil no hydraulics will function? Are there any warning indicators on the display?
