I have a 249d track loader the left hand side track won't move a hydraulic line broke we replaced it and now the track won't move

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Heavy Equipment Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts.

Thank you

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing this yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes I am fixing it myself I verified that fluid is going to the final drive i checked the filter there is no metal

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else the Equipment Mechanic should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.

I wasn't the one operating the machine when the line broke and I don't know how long they ran it without fluid

Hi! I’ll be happy to assist with your hydraulic issue. Which line did you replace?

Hi, without more information I cannot provide a specific answer. In general; certain system require that you bleed the hydraulic system prior to initiating use. To do this you would take a line loose at the top side of the component you are working on and allow oil to flow, then tighten the line.

The small line on the final drive is what broke and I replaced three our out of the four lines one the drive I have already tried bleeding the lines
Mechanic: TomcM28, Owner replied 8 months ago

Was the machine originally stopped because someone noticed a leak or did it stop moving?

Sounds like you may have a bad side on the tandem pump. You’ll want to have the pressures checked.
