Hi,
I have a Mahindra 2415HST with ML105 Loader and I've been having some hydraulic issues. Essentially what is happening is that lowing the bucket, and tilting down takes suddenly takes a tremendous amount of force on the joystick - never used to be that way. In fact yesterday I actually broke the joystick control. So I have a couple of problems:

1) I welded the joy stick and its working, but I would like to replace it but can't seem to find the part - on the Mahindra parts site the entire hydraulic control shows up as one part number
2) Any thoughts on what could be causing the hydraulic issue. Fluid is full, nothing else I can think of that changed.
3) If I have to replace the entire control, any idea what my options are? Mahindra part number KMW05806204 is crazy expensive if I can even get it where I am in Canada. I have to believe that it's actually a third party that Mahindra used? Anyone know of options to replace it?

How about the 3pt, is it operating correctly. Since the FEL and 3pt most likely are using the same hydraulic pump, try and rule that out.

3pt completely fine as is the HST. Good idea to check though.

What about the hydraulic filter, many hrs on it.
Also do you have the manual that covers the loader. Does it have a parts breakdown to component level, my ML111 does.

Not sure but think you have the same valve I have on my loader. It’s made by Cross. Here’s a link to the company. Hydraulic Directional Control Valves Model DV | Cross

You have to download the spec sheet to get the detailed model number. when I go out to the garage later I’ll get you the specifics on my valve.

Yeah posted in parts and repairs first, before remembering there was a Mahindra forum - could not find a way to delete.

So I figured out the problem yesterday. What essentially was happening was that one of the ball joints was loose, and causing binding. It wasn't really obvious until I took it apart and put it back together. In the pic (which is not my tractor but looks the same) you can see the threaded piece. It must have slowly come loose. So once I tightened it properly (including the allan key screw that is supposed to hold it from loosening), everything worked well.

Thanks for all the help.

You might want to invest in some Loctite 242 ( medium) thread lock so it does happen again.

That picture is a Cross valve. In case it’s needed in the future here’s the spec sheet on the valve along with the specifics for the valve on my loader as an example
