    Operator was working, calls and says machine won't move. Engine sounds like it is laboring against hydraulics. Have restarted it several times no change.

    Engine sounds labored instantly upon start up. Push travel stick and it will crawl a few feet and come to a stop.

    It will move a little buy raising and lowering the bucket repeatedly ?

    I'm stumped.
