Greetings, when you say the bucket will lock up and not move, is it just the bucket tilt that locks up? Or is it both bucket tilt and loader arm functions that lock up?

Then it sounds like something is tripping the BICS lock valve on the main control valve. The F series machine is a bit basic with onboard diagnostics, but we should start there. The BICS controller should be located on the back wall of the cab to the right of the seat if you were sitting in the seat. When everything is working properly all the LED lights on the BICS controller will be lit up solid. At the moment you lift/tilt locks up, turn and check the LED lights on the BICS controller, see if any of the lights are either off or blinking. If one is blinking, that's a trouble code. Let me know what you find.
