Hi and welcome to the forum, There are usually several 50HX operators manuals on Ebay, it sounds like something on your steering is effecting the drive then if it is working intermitantly could it be the transmission dump valve osr something connected to it is causing your transmission to stop engaging, i take it your digger has a 4 speed gearbox with a forward and reverse shuttle on the left hand column, that was a very good transmission alot of people still rate the 50hx against the later MF 860 machines.

look through the hatch in the floor under your feet , you will see two solenoids each side on the top of the box , most likely one of these playing up , swap the plugs when it wont move and see
every village has one , is yours missing you
