    Hitachi EX300 track controls backwards

    I recently bought a used Hitachi EX300LC that the track controls seem backwards. Push left forward and right track will reverse. The boom/stick controls are correct like JD but tracks are not correct. They recently replace both HYD pumps also. Thoughts?
