    260 BH Leaks off, way off

    First time I have left my BH off for any extended amount of time (three days), it leaked off until the frame was on the ground. Is this normal, did I do something wrong or is there a problem?Click image for larger version.

    Most all hydraulic attachments leak down it is normal and not 260BH specific. Some do leak down faster than others. I block mine up with wood or concrete blocks when I disconnect from the tractor for easier hookup later.

    I always put mine with the frame on the ground. Isn't that how it's supposed to be done? It just didn't seem safe to leave the 600 plus pounds up in the air.

    Mine does the same thing. I consider it completely normal also. The fact that it goes to the ground really has not cause any issues with me. I just pick it back up with the outriggers when I'm re installing the backhoe.

    As I have finally learned to duck to the left going into the shop to miss the ROPS... I was beginning to learn to rotate my a$$ sideways to miss the lowered stabilizer which seems always just about hip bone high, but of course I forget. "OW, $#&^!"

    I now have a nice piece of yellow painted dog chain w/2 hooks that go between the stabilizers.
