Hyd Cyl lag time?
« on: April 18, 2018, 06:12:42 PM »
Replaced nipple fitting on loader arms cylinder. Can't  believe it has taken me this long to break it off. Can't believe I haven't cut it off with a misguided saw. Anyway, the fixed Cyl is not pulling it's weight. I know it is air mixed in there. Got to be hard on welds on arm with one Cyl not putting out 100 percent. Will this air work its way out?

Work it empty a few times and it should be fine.

If its a single acting cylinder like the ones we have on our sizzor lift, you may have to bleed the air out, but double acting(two hoses to each cylinder)usually deal with the air themselves....I think ;D

Hello, 
   Cycle the cylinder a few times all the air will go back to the tank and be vented. Hydraulic fluid is not really special but it does not work well with tractor hydraulic fluid. Dextron III is the heaviest viscosity that should be used.
