What makes you think you have trapped air?Is 3pt.jerky,or does it slip?Reason I ask is,the system should bleed itself if the vents are clear and everything is like it should be.

HYDRAULICS ARE SLOW UNLESS I TAKE PRESSURE OFF THE SYSTEM BY LOWERING THE GANNON A BIT. I THINK THE PUMP IS STRONG BECAUSE IT STILL CAN PICK UP THE SAME WEIGHT AS ALWAYS. I WAS TOLD THAT SLOW HYDRAULICS ARE A SYMTOM OF AIR IN THE LINES.

3 POINT IS NOT JERKY AND THERE IS NO SLIPPING TO ANSWER YOUR Q'S.

Is it slow to respond on the lifting or on the releasing?I'm thinking that if air is in the system,it would state something in a service manual about how to bleed it off?I would call a MF dealer service dept.in your area and ask them about it.I would also look for a petcock of some kind close the pump.I can barely remember a vent thing on the top of the reservoir of a MF20 I had,must have been a one way type air thing or it would have shot fluid everywhere.That's why I said it would bleed itself off.Think about it,everytime you add or ck fulid level you are opening the system,so to speak.So therefore it has air that has to be bleed off?Maybe a bad air/check valve in the reservoir tank?These are just shots in the air,that's why I'd ck with a service dept.with MF.
