    Metalheads of OTT 🤘

    Surprised none of you potheads have mentioned Electric Wizard yet. Im an old Metallica and Sabbath fan. The mid 2000s metal stuff is boring to me.

    Zero Turn Mowers

    Get a used commercial zero turn. You will mow twice or 3 times as fast as a tractor pulling a mower. Used because its alot cheaper but one designed for commercial use because they are built to last unlike big box store zero turns. I have a used Exmark Laserz 60

    Confirm My Hydraulic Analsis Please

    rebuilding it is easy and cheap, just a bunch of seals. The issue is its in the bowels of the machine and lots of hoses going in and out so messy to do.

    Sounds like you already have all the answers Henro but for those future readers with a mini ex and a blade issue I would reccomend reading what others have encountered with this same issue and excavator hydraulic systems in general, figure out the problem before modifying the system. Could be...

    There are relief valves on everything either sharing a main or individual ones on the circuits. Even my old backhoe attachment had reliefs on everything. Henros idea of adding a check valve bypasses that safety. Yeah the vice grip idea was a joke and would damage the hoses but a check valve...

    Well yeah it is the issue. You got fluid going somewhere and you want it to stay in your cylinder to hold your blade down. Whats a pilot operated check valve, the plumbing to make it all work cost? Best to figure out what your actual problem is so you dont end up wasting money on a bandaid...

    There are several other sources of internal leaks besides the valve and the cylinder seals that are specific to an excavator like the swivel joint. Im betting that individual circuits on his excavators valve body have pressure relief valves too that could be hung open slightly and leaking by.

    Your swivel joint could leak internally. lift the machine with the boom and blade so the tracks are off the ground. operate the tracks both ways, does the blade go down at all with track input? Or leave tracks on the ground and lift with just the blade, swivel the house, does the blade drop...

    Fords are junk

    Tundras are just cars with a pickup body to the industries that actually use trucks. Id buy one as a commuter though if they would hold up to light duty work abuse. Wasnt long ago driving by the toy dealership seeing piles of frames..lol

    Fords are junk

    Tundras are the best. lol I was just ranting about another stupid problem with the F150 but the reality is the only vehicles that ive owned and able to hold up to actual work are Superduty Fords.

    What do you have for a machine? Pressure relief valve on that circuit? Maybe your swivel joint is leaking by internally. What about the linkage between the handle and the actual valve, is the valve returning to center when you let off the handle?

    My Bobcat 337 has load checks in the valve body to prevent this. My grade blade was occasionally not holding and i found that my load check valve was loose in the valve body and allowing fluid to leak by. I simply tightened it and all was good. Get a schematic of your hydro system and see if...

    Fords are junk

    its got 140k plus now. Its just my commuter/beater. I kind of hate it. i figure ill sell it in the winter if it lasts that long, will be a money pit before too long. BUT then ill need to replace it with some other 1/2 ton. and all makes have their issues. Also because its an ecoboost its got...

    Fords are junk

    Actually i think this is probably the biggest contributor to the issue. Swelling happened inside and the outside got pinched. Important parts that have to do with stopping and safety should be engineered better i think though.

    Get off the highway the other day in my 2012 f150 and smell brakes. Hoping it was the car in front of me it wasnt. Driver front wheel was smoking. Figured it was a stuck caliper again so i changed it out. That wasnt the problem. Turns out the rubber brake line was restricted by rust jacking...

    Was he extremely short in stature? Because he acts like he has a little man complex. Wonder how many masks hes wearing these days? 😷 😷 😷 😷😷 😷
