    Can you fill in some of the blanks for us. History? When did it start? All of a sudden? What has been checked out already? etc.

    Pump would be first suspicion. Run some pressure checks to help track the problem.

    Make yourself a hyd pressure gage tester and check out the system. Seals could be leaking.

    When I works, I works hard. When I sits and thinks, I goes to sleep.

    Git er done.

    Most of those MF65's use 80- 90 Wt gear oil for hydraulic fluid... If you put anything with a lighter viscosity you will have the exact problem you are having until you drain and replace the fluid. Also when changing the fluid there is an internal filter that can get clogged up, remove it and wash it with diesel or kero... While at it do not over look the final drives, they have planetary drives on each axle that must be drained and filled. (will not drain with hydraulic system) MF65 is a wonderful utility tractor.
