Re: L48 Hydraulic Failure
On the B6100 I guarantee you the screen is completley plugged with crap, and while the L48 has 1200 hours and the hydraulic fluid appears 'clear' I didn't read that the hydraulic filters have been cleanerd, serviced or replaced.
The gradual loss of hydraiulic performance coupled with an increase in engine operating rpms in order to compensate for 'slow' hydraulics is the tip off that the filters are plugged and the gpm throughput is reduced and restricted.
The L48 has a pair of high flow hydraulic filters mounted in tandem, a spin on cartridge style filter for the HST and a seperate internal mesh screen style filter on the suction line where it enters the case of the transmission.
That's four filters and four real good areas to look at because that's where the fix to this problem will be found!
