While using the loader on my 4600, I blew the line that controls the lift. After replacing the line, the bucket won't hardly lift. While trying to lift, the engine strains and it lifts very slowly. All other hydraulics work fine, the bucket tilts and the rear arms. Do I need to bleak the air somehow?
I don't know if this means anything, but previously the control lever would trip when the bucket either bottomed out or would be under heavy loads. On mine, the loader works when the control lever is pushed back. If I tilt the bucket and it reachs the closed position, the control lever will trip to the middle position, which controls the rear hydraulics.
My first thought was that the hydraulic level is low, but I don't think I lost much fluid and the other hydraulics work. I changed all fluids this Spring and put in the recommended amounts. I see in the manual that there should be a fill plug by the park brake, but I don't have a square plug on mine and all other nuts look the same and don't appear to be fill plugs. Can anyone tell me how to check the hydraulic level?
Any help is appreciated. Thanks
