    JCB 8018 Hydraulic problem

    Hi Just hoping someone can help

    JCB 8018 2016 Hydraulic ram is pushing out wards without me touching any controls and it won’t retract when I pull on the joy stick
    When I pull on the joy stick I hear no resistance from the pump at all

    This is my first ever digger so please explain as if you was talking to a child or pictures would be even better lol

    Thank you in advance

    Colin

    Hi Muz
    I managed to sort it out

    I had a bit of an old seal lodged in the valve. so after a lot of fiddling about I managed to clear it and the machine is now fine

    Thanks for responding to me messages

    Colin
