Hydro Lift problems

Recommended Posts

Bunky
I have a 2010 w/hydro lift when I got it it worked ok but it wouldn't stay up very long... Then it started lifting slower and having to rev it up.. Now it will barely lift... I have: checked the fluid checked the belt Is there a way i can check the pump or cylinder to tell which is bad????

Is the chrome still on the lift rod or ram. If not it will usually mess up the O rings and cause it to bleed down. Ray

Is the a breakdown of the Hydraulic pump I think maybe the pressure relief is sticking... The chrome is still on the cylinder except for one little spot but it looks smooth...

Theres a break down in any of the old parts manuals that you can download from Simplicity Techical Pub. Any respectiable auto parts store such as Napa or a bearing distributor would have the O rings. Thedaddycat did a tread on this a while back. Ray

I tried the lift again today it will lift the tiller but not if it's in the ground or has any weight on it... How do I test the pump??? And can I take the valve off with the unit in the tractor???????
