Welcome to GTTalk. Since it worked and then suddenly stopped I'd check the linkage to the valve to make sure it is intact and actuating the valve properly.

Thanks guys and when you say the valve are you talking about where the lever is that you use to lift the ram ? Cheers

Welcome to GTT. Relax and enjoy the site.

You have a great tractor. Download the manuals that you need and study them. I suspect that the hydraulic fluid is low and that you may have checked the wrong place. Read up and try all routine maintenance before you get into anything complicated and expensive. Good Luck, Rick

Welcome to GTtalk. Since is was working and then quit, what happens when you let everything cool down? Does it work then? As Rick suggested DL the manuals for your tractor and familiarize your self with the component's. That will help both you and us communicate and get the problem resolved.
