My 150 did that only once. The control spool was stuck. Remove lower bolts on right side cover (sitting on tractor), drain oil level to there, remove cover, check spool movement. Hopefully that's your problem.

For what it's worth. Many years ago my father was blowing snow with our 165. He stopped at his house to put on more clothes. He left the tractor running with the 3ph down. It would not pick up the snow blower when he got back on. Long story short, the control valve stuck in the down position.

Does the PTO SHAFT operate as per what you believe is correct ?

Is your 50 a Dual stage clutch assembly as per picture?

Drain oil from common HYD..TRANSS..DIFF CASE so as oil is below bottom threaded bore / hole...see picture..

Start Tractor...operate hyd lift controls and verify levers and operating as per picture....

Does your 50 have any after market auxiliary controls installed as to operate remote Cylinders / Rams?
Pics are from MF service manual..also of a MF 35 ..

Today's Featured Article - Product Review - by Staff. When we finally checked out the 3000 PSI North Star, the whole story chaned. This unit was equipped with an 11 HP Honda engine with fuel shutoff, adjustable flow and optional syphon degreaser dispenser. It didn't have a pressure release or electric start to facilitate easy starting but according to the instructions, simply pulling on the trigger while cranking was sufficient. This method of starting proved more than adequate and kept the cost down on the unit. It had all the important ... [Read Article]
