    Hi all,
    newbie to this site and would like to take it for a test drive, let me start off by first saying thanks to anyone who takes the time to read my post and possibly shed some light on my issue..what I have is 2007 Vermeer mini skid steer s600tx. A person brought it to me with a few leaks and not able to go forward and left at the same time, it will go forward and right,it just wants nothing to do with the left , if you find a sweet spot in the controls it will go very slow straight forward, I repaired the leaks and ran it through all if its motions and rechecked the fluid level. ok now it still wont turn left going forward, I can however turn both ways moving in reverse, the joystick feels fine in all directions, but im leaning towards replacing it,any thoughts before I do? also the warning light is on always for hydraulic oil overtemp, which I know its not because its on as soon as its started. Any and all help is appreciated. if you need more info or something I left out please ask. thanks again Andy

    Is the handle touching the handrest? As the valves wear under the joystick they get sloppy. Ive seen some old 600s that the only way you could drive is by bending the handle to get a full range. A half inch will make it inoperable.
