    Default backhoe and brake problem

    Hi guys I'm new to the site and just got a 2002 L35 kubota and I was playing with the backhoe for the first time and was confused. When using it I noticed that I was not able to raise the main boom and pull in on the secondary boom at the same time, used separately these work great. should they work at the same time? I would think so in order to scrape a flat surface. I wonder if the rpms were not high enough or hydraulic fluid not warm enough?
    Also my brakes don't seem to grab that well, also the two peddles are seized together it seems. Anyone have experience with these brakes? Do you need the clutch in in order for them to work?
    thanks in advance.

    Yes, you should be able to use both functions on the hoe at the same time. One is naturally want to take priority, so it may take a little finesse feathering the controls to do it well.

    On the brake pedals, there should be a piece of steel that will connect both pedals together. Flip it over, and they are unlocked and can be used independently. If they are rusted together, it may take some jizzbang ..... or other elbow grease to get them free from one another. Adjusting the brakes is generally pretty easy. There is an actuator rod that runs under the tractor from the brake pedals, back to the rear end. The rod will be threaded somewhere along its way. That is where it is adjusted..... but be sure to adjust both sides equally.

    Try operating the L35 at 1700 RPM. You should have enough oil flow to combine the functions smoothly. The down side is that the swing is super sensitive and fast. You have to be constantly focusing on not smacking something while swinging.

    Check the front axle oil before using the tractor again. It will need 90W oil.

    The swing function is too fast, the 3 pt lifts fast, the front axle leaks oil. Other than that, the L35s are a good TLB.
    What could possibly go wrong? *#^@*! I think it is time for a drive.
