Hi my name is ***** ***** glad to help. The symptoms you are having point to a possible failing hydraulic pump. Check the filter for fine metal/debris internally that would confirm a pump/component failure. If found the system will need to be flushed completely before running the new pump or components. Let me know the results and if we need to dig deeper into this.
