Quicke Q45 loader problem

Question from a simple stockman.
Quicke loader not lifting or crowding back when there’s weight in the bucket, fine when empty. Plenty of oil in the tractor. Just filters need changing perhaps? Many thanks

What type of coupling arrangement is there on the loader control valve? If it's a singular type with a 1/2" bsp male connected to a 1/2"bsp female quick (x4) release coupling then lower the loader to ground ,shut off tractor and move joystick in all 4 directions and then disconnect all 4 couplings and have a good look at the nipple in each type, if the head of the nipple is battered looking then replace both male and female ends .They will be in line as in 1,2,3,4. This should solve it. The 1/2"bsp male and 1/2"bsp female couplings can be got at any agri dealer, hyd stockist.
Make sure that you buy all the male/ female couplings from the same brand.

Another hydraulic slice / outlet (handle pulled) pumping hard perhaps?

I don’t see how this will help. Why would the connections fail?

Sounds like a lack pressure or cylinder problem to me. I would check the pressure relief valve setting first. If that's correct then get the bus rams revealed.

Have your voice heard. Should the Horticulture levy continue?

A ‘yes’ is a vote for change and a ‘no’ could see the end of a statutory levy. I encourage you to consider the facts and to use your vote. At a time of immense change, the loss of a central organisation that invests in applied research for the benefit of all would be a considerable loss
