I know the 260 has a reputation for being slow moving but I think mine might be slower than it should be. Brand new by the way. Oil levels are good. If this is normal, I'll be patient, but wanted to make sure. Took 25 seconds to retract the left outrigger.

Try disconnecting the quick couplers on the hydraulics then reconnect them and see if it gets faster.

There was a thread here a few months ago about the same issue, tractor was serviced or the BH was removed then reattached and was super slow.

There was a 'reset' procedure in the manual that returned it to normal, I just can't find it at the moment-hopefully someone else will be able to link it for you

Yeah, that's super slow. I run mine at idle most of the time and it only takes 10 seconds or less at idle (guessing the time) to go from transport position to full extension. At 2300 rpm, it's very quick to the point of being jumpy.

Definitely re-seat your hydraulic connections. Something is affecting the flow rate and it should be performing much faster.

It might have been related to this post: http://www.greentractortalk.com/forums/sub-compact-utility-tractors-scut/20984-only-backhoe-260-very-slow-sluggish-after-50-hour-service-2.html#post237244

Here's the text that GEORGIASHOOTER provided:
"VERY IMPORTANT UPDATE after my 50 hour service in previous post. My backhoe was weak as could be the next day. No amount of operating, playing with connections, fluid levels helped at all. Read back through this thread and found one SMALL mention of someone operating the PTO switch which I would have never thought of. So like the post said I jumped on the 1025R and fired it up mid RPM and steered the wheel left and right then turned the yellow PTO on and off several times, even played with the combination lever down on the left to apply to front and back.

FIXED!!!! The backhoe woke up with a FURY!!! The stabilizers move up and down very smooth and quick now. I'm dangerous again. Who the hell would ever think of this????? This needs to be in every procedure for this service. "

I tried your suggestions and sure enough it worked...for maybe 1 minute. Then slow again, then fast, then slow. Then I found this:

Dealer is picking it up Thursday. I'm not very happy. It's been one thing after another.

Hard to tell from your video if it's leaking from the valve itself or the fittings.

If it's from the fittings it's also hard to tell if you could get a wrench in there to tighten the nuts where the fitting meets the valve body. There should be a washer and o-ring under the nut that seals that area.

I cannot tell for sure on video. It looks like it may be leaking from the valve body behind the fittings. Hard to tell. I would let the dealer fix it since it is new.

Hopefully they can get it in and done quickly. I hate when something sits at a dealer waiting to be worked on. I have not had that problem with my John Deere dealer ever.:clapping:

My RV dealer is another story though. :rocket:

Got the backhoe back and as it turns out it was leaking in 3 different places. Came from the factory that way. Dealer said another backhoe he had just sold did the same thing. Something to watch out for if anyone is thinking about a BH.

Did the dealer replace the valve or was it just loose hydraulic connections on the BH valve?

Also, is it still intermittently slow. If disconnecting and reconnecting the BH hydraulic quick connects at the power beyond fixed the slowness problem initially, did the dealer replace the power beyond quick connects; and if the problem is in the return quick connect, the BH valve was seeing allot of back pressure which would have caused excessive heat and slow movement.

My point is, the valve problem could have been caused by the hydraulic restriction problem. If the restriction problem is not repaired, and the BH is still slow, then the real problem hasn't been repaired, only the result of the problem was repaired.

Just a caution!!! :thumbup1gif:
