    Problem with JCB 215 S Series II backhoe

    Actually, this is Dtmans wife. My husband is frustrated and I know he can fix anything. I would just like a response from someone who owns this backhoe. Any ideas the problems?

    Check the fuses? Are you sure the brakes locked up and its not the transmission? I know someone with a JCB and they had a wiring problem and it made the machine stop.

    Question Another Fool & a New Toy ***

    [B] Sorry but I have No idea,, We, or should I say "HE" has a similar problem & needs some advice too.

    Long Story Short~
    Friend bought a 1995 JCB 214, now its beside the Hole in my back yard

    I said the same as previously stated,, wiring or fuses, but since I'm pretty mouthy for a spare rib, guess I was ignored, ,
    The answer was "YAH I DID"

    Decides to move ahead & NADA...he has Reverse & Ntrl,, no forward gears ...

    Wondering if anyone has any little check points, or a safety check of somekind?? I can't seem to locate any Troubleshooting info for this thing, but he is heading out of town in the morning to pick up a manual..

    Is the hole big enough to doze it in and still get some cover over it? That would fix the problem.

    Being a JCB thats no good either because it will leak oil like a sieve and then you will have the environmetal boys breathing down your neck. Best to send for the dynamite kid and let him reduce it to tiny pieces!!!!!
