So I was in a hurry, and I dug a little hole for brace for a fencepost, without attaching the loader and using it to brace. Now there's a squealing noise from the backhoe at idle, which goes away if I use any of the hydraulics (even just moving the outrigger legs). I noticed the machine shifting some while i was digging - did I bend something important? Any ideas?
I'm almost at 50 hours so I figure I'll get the dealer to take a look, but it'll be a few days before they can get a truck out, so I thought I'd ask the learned folks here. In particular, do you think it's a bad idea to do a little more work with the backhoe in the meantime? I'd really like to get that fence finished...
