    Jcb 8016

    Morning all,

    I have a 2013 8016 and the dipper arm 'popped' last week resulting now in about only 20% of the original power/effort. Can anyone recommend a reliable fitter in Cheshire? I'm thinking a seal or valve maybe but need to crack on with a job so don't have time to try and fathom it out vs someone who knows them inside out no doubt going straight to it! Thanks in advance of any suggestions!

    Cheers, GMV

    Not sure to be honest... There is no hydraulic fluid leaking but I heard something 'pop' when using it and now there is little power in the ram. The arm also slowly drops down under it's own weight when extended. I could do with a quick fix tbh but not sure where to turn or who to trust

    If it's got tracks, wheels, t*ts, or an engine, at some point it's gonna give you trouble!!
