Have you checked for any fault codes from the machine controller? Some machines you can press the light switch to retrieve codes through the hour meter and then on the BICS controller machines you can count the flashes to get codes.

Check inside the hydraulic filter line metal or debris. It will look like glitter in the filter and oil if present. This would indicate a hydraulic pump or component failure occurring if present. Also check if the bucket functions work and if you have lost all of your functions you may also want to check your pump drive coupling between the engine and hydraulic pumps to be sure it has not failed. If all of this checks good, have your pressures tested and confirmed whether they are within factory specifications according to your machines service book. Check all of your safety interlock wiring and switches as well. This would include your lap bar/seatbelt switch, seat switch, and door switch if equipped. Be sure to check all your fuses and relays as well. It is a pleasure to help anyway I can.
