    Well I'm confused

    Any help would be great. Plenty of Hydro oil, Pump has been replaced less than 100 hrs...5 years ago, filter changed recently, and steering works. Every once and a while after sitting for a few weeks the bucket will not lift and the brake pedals easily push to the floor with no braking effect. I do notice though it takes a few seconds to a minute or so to have the bucket lift when it does work.

    The emergency hydraulic lowering valve is in the correct position also. Is there an electric solenoid or spring valve somewhere inline that deflects hydraulic oil from brake assist or bucket hydro?

    Thank you for any help
