    Default Trouble With Loader

    I was using the grapple and noticed the loader arms would not lower. While grappling, I do not recall hitting anything hard or abusing it (ramming something). I checked the connections at the hydraulic ports and I also checked to see if the hoses were kinked. Everything looked ok (From the eye of a novice). The other three functions (raising, roll back, and dump) all function properly. I'm using a rear remote for the grapple and that is working as well. After fiddling with the the joystick, if I position it in one location, the arms sometimes lower. This is does not work every time, but most times it does. When I do this, I have to lower it very slowly. To get this to work, I have to approach the joystick delicately to find the right stop where it will engage Also when doing this, sometimes it lowers all the day down, other times it stops in about the same place. When I use the joystick to lower it, it makes a noise similar to when the bucket is in the max dump or roll back position. Any thoughts? Thanks

    Sounds like a quick coupler is messing with you. Might try shutting the engine down, relieving pressure on all functions and then make sure all quick couplers are fully engaged. The collars need to all snap back into locked position.

    Take the rubber boot off your loader valve and check linkage and that the spool is moving the same going in and out.
