Hello,

Most B model backhoes, use hydraulic oil for brake fluid. Often I see operators fill the reservoir with brake fluid and this destroys the seals in the brakes.

Depending on the serial number of the machine, you will likely need to remove the axle and reseal the brakes.

To verify this, check the oil level in the rear axle, it will likely be overfull.

If you need more information about this repair, please let me know.

Also please provide the full machine serial number so I an research the correct information.
