    And the list of stuff to fix just continues to grow! Lol

    If the boom is up and/or bucket is tilted up and the foot control pedals are depressed they still operate the boom/bucket and will let them fall down when machine is turned OFF.

    It's not supposed to do this right? Shouldn't the pedals lock when the machine is off and not allow the hydraulics to release? I've noticed that sometimes the boom (left pedal) will lock, but usually it doesn't. I have not noted a pattern to this behavior yet. The plate tilt pedal (right pedal) never locks correctly if machine is OFF. It always will release the bucket and let it tilt downward.

    Anyone know a common fix for this?

    FYI, I think this compact tract loader was turned over onto it's right side by the concrete company that operated/owned it before me. Not sure if this could have been a cause of the pedals safety malfunctions...
