Outrigger can have bad hold valve, or the cylinder can be leaking internally. Same for the bucket cylinder, does it function ok, or does it bleed off? If it bleeds off and will not hold load, cylinder likely has internal seals bad. Repair on bucket cylinder would be to reseal cylinder.

No I haven't found the problem yet it seems to be that the bucket cylinder collapses when I push myself back
