    ..... and rebuilder is in Michigan snowmobiling. I AM FEELIN TROUBLE!!!!

    Here is what I have goin on:
    Meyer E60 was working fine. Went to next lot, dropped blade and that was that. No up, no left, no right. But down did work.

    Get it home, check fluid. Low, real low (not sure where it went, I never see any leaks or spots of fluid) I fill but still in-op. I hear motor run, but no movement.

    As a side note I can lift and lower lift arm easy by hand with or without power to the unit.

    Please tell me what you think is going on. Thank you.

    Motor sounds normal? With no movement I would guess, frozen, broken pump or damaged pump o ring. Put heat to it and see if it starts working. You can try taking the motor off and spinning pump shaft by hand. Everything else requires opening the unit up.
