Wonder if anyone could advise?
a 2007 jcb 8014....1850 hours run
On lifting the machine to rotate the tracks i drop the blade to the ground and lift the machine slightly then with the bucket a couple of metres forward lower it so as to lift fhe whole machine.......this is not readily acheivable unless the boom/dipper is reached quite far forward thus increasing the turning moment affectively

my conclusion is this indicates wear in the hydraulic pump as i donít think Iím seeing full power......
would i be correct ?
i feel i should be able to lift the machine readily with the dipper somewhat closer to the machine but there seems to be a lack of grunt

thanks for any input
