Since we have changed the hydraulic oi and filter we have lost the breaks in our 436HT JCB Loader and it keeps shutting the engine down

Thanks for the info. It sounds like the pumps may have gotten air bound and possibly may have been damaged. Check to be sure the oil level is full and if so double check the new filter to see if there is any sign of fine metal like glitter in the oil or filter indicating a pump problem occurring.
