    The bucket is smooth but the drive hydraulics are jumpy when turning left. It bucks pretty bad, enough to not be safe.

    When I looked at the boxes the controls are connected to. One will move side to side but theres a spring in between them. So is this supposed to have play in it?

    Other then that any ideas what this could be? At low speeds it doesnt do it or with light turns.

    Is the spring holding the 2 pumps together when belt released? Look for any play in the control linkages and check the drive chain tension in the side boxes to the wheels. Also look for play in the wheel bearings on axles themselves.
