I have 226B cat...

I have 226B cat skid steer that the bucket stop going up or down and will not tilt. Machine runs and turns but the bucket does not work.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the complete model and serial number of your machine?

It is out in the field and I do not have that at this time

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the equipment mechanic to know before I connect you?

What kind of motor oil should be used in that machine?

Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 5 years ago

Seat belt/safety switches will lock out the boom/bucket hydrauics. Are they working? 15W40 oil is used in the engine.

just working alone for an hour or so and lost response in right control
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 5 years ago

OK> so is this both boom and bucket loss?

Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 5 years ago

I suspect the seat switch/seat belt or safey bar switches, keeping hydraulics from working. Pump not as likely to just quit unless it was under heavy load and broke the shaft!

Customer reply replied 5 years ago
no heavy load, switches found where?
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 5 years ago

The seat switch and seat belt or safety bar, all have switches, that have to be made , or the hydraulics will not work.
