Customer Question

We have a 4010 with hydraulic issues. Both the loader and rear cyl. move very slowly. Have replaced pump and have 2300 psi but not much improvement. Seems like an oil volume problem since we now know it's not a pressure issue. Hooked loader lines to another tractor and it works like it should so it's somewhere in the 4010 system. Any thoughts?

Hi my name is***** will be glad to try to help. If the pump is good then the next step is to get into the control valve an relief valves to look for damaged o rings, debris causing restrictions or sticking valves etc. Let me know

I'm back. Apparently my credit card flagged the justask fee but that's fixed. Now for fixing the tractor. The control valve has been serviced so looks like relief valve may be the issue. Can you tell me everything I need to know about relief valves? How do I service them? Where the heck are they? If I just spent $ 1200 on a new pump and if this valve is the issue I'm gonna be fussy. Maybe we we at least have a usable loader..........................

thanks for the update When all hydraulics are slow it is a result of lack of flow of oil which almost always is related to a pump issue unless there is a restriction restricting flow of oil.

Well we now know it's not the pump. Any thoughts on where to start looking for restrictions
