I would suggest you find a JD dealer and buy a manual if you want to do the maintenance yourself. You can also do a Google search and find manuals.
I would also suggest you completely drain the old hydraulic fluid and replace it with new fluid and a new filter if it has not been serviced any time in the recent past.
The symptoms you describe can be low fluid and/or a clogged filter. If you or anyone else has run the tractor too long and it has low fluids and/or a clogged filter, you can damage the hydraulic pump and that can get costly.

I have a Ford 1700 and the first time this happened I assumed it needed the oil changed (DID NOT read the manual). After changing the hydraulic oil for about $50... it ran no better. Read the manual. Bought the hidden oil filter. Bought new oil. Problem solved. The filter on this tractor sits in the bottom of the rear end housing and collect ever piece of junk. Good! But a pain to change the filter.

Like other hydraulic systems, there is probably a procedure for bleeding the lines after loss of most of the fluid. You may still have air trapped in the system and once it works its way to the cylinder, the cylinder is working with air instead of fluid and the air compresses instead of doing work.

Sounds like you have a hydraulic flow valve problem. Check the lift arms when the pump is running to see if you have any hydraulic fluid leaking there.
