    Hey guys - its loose linkage - If you have this problem tighten all the linkages up and replace ends that are to worn . Amazing difference .

    Werid mine does it when i run it hard and fast - course i can wheelie it and load it into a 5 ton truck so maybe thats the problem :D That would be terrible at low RPMs i dont see how youd be able to get past real tight places . Anyhow we built the cylinders and dug into it - Its Loose Linkage just like the loader mechanic told me - no parts even - just tighten it up - we will see tomorrow how she goes .

    Pavement makes it worse but you dont have to be turning . Its not all the time but it is getting closer to all the time - very gradually getting worse - like over years and years . Its my yard only loader so if i drive it and keep it slow its not a problem but im doing alot of rock work around the house and i think its time to fix it . Loader mechanic told me it was linkage . Seems like about half the steer skids have this problem - our monster Thompson is so smooth - and slow . The New Holland seems quick anyhow to me and operating is quickly makes it worse . The Thompson never bucks .

    Im sure many of you have been in a steer skid that bucks . Sometimes you have to just stop it to get it to settle down . Just curious befor i dig into mine which is a New Holland 2002 LS 180 with low hours - what make them do that . I figured its in the linkage from the manual hand controls and in the foot pedals . Dint think it could be a pump problem since its running so well . Any advice ?
