Default JCB 3CII backhoe help

Hi all,

Newbie question..............

I've got a burst hose on the backhoe but can't get at one end of it to replace. How do you get the backhoe to move away from the chassis? Is it via the circled lever in the attached picture? If so, it's seized up Any tips on how to free it - bearing in mind that I've got a burst hose!

Which end of the hoscan you get at? If it's the end nearest the supply you could uncouple it and fit a blank then you can operate the machine without loosing more oil.

The clamps should loosen up if the machine isn't used for a couple of days. you might be able to winch or push it over with another machine if you have one available? Depends what position the arm is in as to how easy that will be to achieve.
