I have a case 1845c skid steer. the machine moves forward…

Customer Question
I have a case...

I have a case 1845c skid steer. the machine moves forward and back but the bucket hand controls do not move and the bucket will not raise/lower or move. any ideas? i traced the linkage back and everything seems to be connected and not broken. there is plenty of hydraulic fluid. the safety controls are not the issue either.

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

Sorry it's a case 1840 skid steer. i do not have the serial number. it's definately an older machine

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

That's all currently

If there no metal or debris in the filter or oil indicating a pump or component failure occurring then check the spools for those functions in the control valve for full movement and for damage or debris in the valves and valve ports. Remove and inspect the relief valve cartridges for those functions for damaged o rings or debris causing a bypass of pressure or sticking.... Also be 100% sure the safety interlock circuit is functioning properly and not contributing to the cause. Finally have the pressures verified if they are in specs . Let me know. To help in component breakdowns of the valves and locations click the link below.
