Is it just one function that is slow or both boom and bucket? If one, look at the hoses and tubes to the two cylinders, and look for pinched or damaged hoses or tubes. If one tube to either cylinder is pinched it restricts the whole function. You say hydrostatic pump? Not hydraulic pump? The drives are hydrostat, but not the hydraulics. Systems are separate.

How did it start? Does this affect the bucket and the boom? Then the hydraulic pump could be the problem!

Expert:  Curtis B. replied 2 years ago.
If it has power, problem sounds to be more of a restriction in the function that is slow.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Where would i look for a restriction?
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 2 years ago.
between the control valve and the cylinders.
