    Same Virtus 130 help

    Evening folks, mate is just off the phone, his 2019 2000 hour virtus 130 has lost hydraulics, steering is fine and tractor drives, but nothing else works. The arms don’t go up or down and the spools don’t work, doesn’t even try to pump when the levers are pulled. Any ideas?
