Default Re: Slow digger rams

Hi,
Was shifting another 40t with the atlas today and noticed everything started to get slightly slower including the boom. Still very workable and after a cup of tea its back upto speed again. The boom raise hydraulic pipe is smaller diameter than the retract pipe. Think a combination of all these restrictions and seals bypassing and no doubt worn out pumps are causing fluid to overheat and slow things down. Defo new machine time me thinks

probably pretty basic pump[s] on there ..... might be worth getting a price for a pump .... Whitehouse products maybe worth a call, for either new, or a rebuild .... if the rest of the machine is OK..... better the devil you know
surprising just how inexpensive some pumps are these days

Or just get the pump rebuilt if you can afford for the machine to be out of action for a week or so.
