When I purchased my MF202 back in August 2016, I managed to get it at a good price because it had a 3 point lift problem.

When you started the engine, the 3 point arms would raise all the way to the top. It didn't matter what you did with the control lever. When I drove it over to my place, I decided to remove the dip stick inspection plate. I looked at the two levers in there and gave them a very gentle pry with a screw driver. The levers sounded a (sproing) and came loose. The lift worked perfect after that.

Yesterday while repairing some damage on my property when some idiot sheared off a fire hydrant. I was working maybe 30 minutes when the hydraulics suddenly stopped working. Box blade was on the ground and the lever did nothing.

Five years later, those two levers managed to get stuck again. This time they got stuck where the lift would not rise. I removed the inspection plate and once again heard the (sproing) when I pulled back on the levers with my finger. All is well again.

I wish I knew what was causing that although, with it happening every five years, I can live with that. If it happens again, I will take a close up picture of those levers before I break them loose. I wish I had remembered to do that this time.

Hmmm...so I guess this never happened to anyone else. The MF30 has the same pump and arms inside.

I try and read all the workbull questions and have noticed there are subjects with no speculations so i'll guess rust in the wrong place probably with the pump, just hate seeing a post with no help.

Thanks, but I wasn't really expecting an answer to a problem. Like I said, it seems to happen every five years and can be solved by pushing on the rods with a finger. That kind of problem I can handle. Wink

I was just wondering if it ever happened to someone else? I'll let you know in 2026 if it happens again. Mr. Green
