SETTING HYDRAULIC DECK RAISING/LOWERING PRESSURE
Tools and Special Tools
Tool Kit, General Mechanic's
Verify correct pressure reading on towing vehicle before making any adjustments. Failure
to comply may result in damage to, or destruction of, equipment or mission.
A reading of 900 psi (6,205.28 kPa) is only on gage when the hydraulic controls
are in use. For the raising/lowering of the deck, readings will go down to 300 psi
(2,068.43 kPa) when the lever is disengaged.
The psi will vary due to load. Hydraulic pressures will vary from 300-900 psi
(2,068.43-6,205.28) under normal operation and will reach a maximum of
900-1,100 psi (6,205.28-7584.23 kPa) under full load.
