Each function has two hoses, just under the operating lever, just swap the two from the boom and stick. If the function is backward, swap the bottom hioe with the top hose.

The two sticks have 4 hoses each. The two outriggers have 2
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 1 year ago

You have joystick control, you just need to identify the two hoses for the two functions, and swap them, there are only two hoses for each function. Are both functions on one joystick?

The left stick is boom and side by side. The right is stick and bucket.
I need boom to right and stick on left
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 1 year ago

Follow the two hoses from the cylinder back to the valve body for both functions, which will identify the hoses at the valve body, then remove them and swap.
