My JD 300 backhoe has stopped working when it gets warmed up. Hydraulics and transmission. When it cools off, everything works again. I've changed the filters, fluid, and cleaned the sump screen. Any idea whats causing it?

Also time to make certain that there is no oil returning to the tractor from the loader or backhoe . When no function is selected.

Yes capping power steering supply line then operating hyd's is a diagnostic step aka process of elimination.

Steering column o-rings have a long history of leaking causing hyd oil to heat & cause hyds to get sluggish. I suggest to acquire a JIC female cap then next time you need to operate backhoe disconnect steering supply line install female cap on main hyd line then see if hyd's operate cooler/better.

just so I understand, this would cap off the power steering? See if I can operate without power steering and see if it corrects the heating issue?

Welcome to YT

Since trans stops operating I'm going to guess that the low pressure trans pump circuit has an internal leak or worn trans pump. A very large high pressure internal could cause same problem. JD closed center hyd system such as your 300 has require "good diagnostics" to determine the problem. Check hyd filter relief valve(keys18-20) to be sure it's not stuck open. Check trans pump output by removing hyd filter cover with drain pan underneath then operate engine for 15 seconds to check pump output.
I also suggest to check temp of each external hyd component with a hand held laser thermometer.

Remember diagnostics-diagnostics- diagnostics Good Luck.

Will do. I know everything I touch in the hyd system gets very hot when I've used the hoe for awhile. The steering column will burn my leg if I touch it.

Today's Featured Article - Grain Threshing in the Early 40's - by Jerry D. Coleman. How many of you can sit there and say that you have plowed with a mule? Well I would say not many, but maybe a few. This story is about the day my Grandfather Brown (true name) decided along with my parents to purchase a new Ford tractor. It wasn't really new except to us. The year was about 1967 and my father found a good used Ford 601 tractor to use on the farm instead of "Bob", our old mule. Now my grandfather had had this mule since the mid 40's and he was getting some age on him. S ... [Read Article]
