We have a 205T JCB compact loader, it has only done 233
We have a 205T JCB compact loader, it has only done 233 hours and we have broken 3 lift pins, moving fallen trees (about 6" diameter), some say approx 20feet long, sticks, using a flail mower (scepi) and just general work. While working I have been trying to lift and move aiming the lifting arm in the centre of any loads. Also if lifting any load, (logs,trees,sticks etc) onto the stacks ready to burn. The lifting arm scratches up the side of the cab, and has also taken quite a large chunk out of the top of the cab on its way down (empty). Also the rear of the cab is being knocked with the back end of the arm and is damaging the steel behind the cab.Can you suggest why this happening and what can I do the fix it? Its a JCB205T-Cab skid steer loader. Vin number is(###) ###-#### Thank you Susan. … read more
