All hydraulic functiins work fine relief pressures are correct. Only issue is when driving with any weight on the front of bobcat including the empty bucket it will not turn it just loads up and trys to stall although it will dtive forwards and backwards ok. Once bucket isnt on machine it turns fine and everything works correctly. Seems very strange that just the empty bucket weight would effect the skid steer. Would it possibly be tight drive chains? Axile bearings seem ok there is no end float/ slop in the hubs
