It worked when we put in in the barn maybe a month ago - we used it to lift the front end to fix a flat tire

need to plow the snow -

starts just dandy
the blade in back on the three point - lifts just as it should
no movement at all in the front - no tilt or lift

slid it forward and back a few inches to be sure we're not frozen to the ground

thoughts?

Do you have a selector lever that controls where hydraulic fluid goes? other than that check level of fluid. Good luck.

Maynard said it better than me. your tractor has a valve that allows single or dual hydraulic circuts . hopefully the lever just moved.

this probably won't help.

lot rot? something needs to be knocked free.

years ago i was running a 980G. the front bucket would refuse to move. if i remember right, it would only happen on start up. shutting off the machine and restarting would get it going after few tries.

we replaced some kind of solenoid.

i know, not much help. but it is all i got.

Let it run and cycle everything you can to heat the fluid up. You probably have cold hard seals in the control causing the issue.

check the spool in the control valve for debris hanging it up. Also, check the relief valve to see if it is popping off early.

Loader control valve block is frozen, or stuck in the float position.

Pour hot water on it or wrap with a heating pad.

Checked the hose connectors?

If water is in the lines they likely are frozen. I would put it in a warm place for a couple days a nod try again.

This. My 340 was notorious for building condensation and would literally freeze up in winter. Warm it up and it will work fine. Swap the fluid and filters and it'll work all winter until it gets enough water in it again to do the same thing. Takes about 10 gallons of Hytran.

it was the 'selector' for the hydraulics - was half way between singe and double - not sure how it got that way and it was a bear to move back

all good now
