    1025R with 260 Backhoe Controls are stuck

    I have a 1025R with a 260 backhoe along with Loader and Belly Mower.
    I don't leave the backhoe on often and detached it a couple of months ago. When I went back to connect to it, the levers will not move with the tractor hydraulics connected or not. By reading some other posts, I assume it settled and created pressure but I cracked about evey fitting I could and they are still not moving. It's literally like the levers are locked.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Double check to make sure the connections are correct. You also took out the travel pins didn't you? Do the stabilizers work?

    I verified the connections. They will only go one way due to the male/female arrangement. The pins are not in it unless I've forgotten about one somewhere and the stabilizer levers will not move either. All 4 levers are stuck. As if there was a lock on them.

    I would have to make a guess that the backhoe was sitting outside uncovered (in the rain) for a long period of time? It could be that the levers have become stuck in place due to corrosion / lack of lubrication. I'm not familiar with how to lubricate the valve spool so maybe someone else could chime in with suggestions.

    Yes, unfortunately, it is outside.

    Your going to have to remove all the covers and get access to the valve body, hopefully it's just the linkages (hiem joins) that are corroded and not the actual valve spools.

    I used penetrating oil and was able to get the boom controls free. Removed the boots on the stabilizer levers and put some oil on them. Couldn’t get them free yet but will let it sit overnight and try them again tomorrow. If they don’t release, I may try to heat them a little.

    My BH has done the same thing and it is the spools that stick in the end cap seals. They paste fast. I freed mine by spraying WD40 on the spools and working them carefully. You have to remove the access cover to get to them, but it is possible to get them free. Don't be afraid to put light force on them to get them free.

    I put thumb screws on the valve cover on mine so I can easily remove the cover. Every time I put mine away, I spray the spools with penetrant and work them. Haven't had any problem since.

    Thanks to all of your help. I was able to get everything freed up and working again. Certainly a good lesson of not letting it sit outside without a good cover.

    Oh yes!! If you leave it outside, definitely tarp it. I keep mine in a garage and mine did the same thing.
