Hi Guy, My name is***** help on here part time in between jobs and nights as time allows. I will be glad to help if you still need help. Check the radiator and hydraulic cooler that it is not plugged restricting air flow. Also check the filter for fine metal/debris that would indicate a hydraulic failure starting such as a pump or component failure. Check the relief cartridges in the main control valve for damages o rings and debris as well. Let me know.
