Uj, Mini digger not slewing, I have a Takeuchi tb25. The arm

Customer Question

JA: What is the complete model and serial number of your machine?
Customer: Mini digger not slewing
JA: Are you fixing this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I have a Takeuchi tb25. The arm works fine but the arm moves very up slowly but has good hydraulic power on all rest of the controls. Just very slow when moving the arm in a forward position. I'll try fixing it my self. Thanks
JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Heavy Equipment Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts.
Customer: OK many thanks
JA: Anything else you want the equipment mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: Yes that's all.

Hi my name is***** will be glad to help... If it is only one function acting up it is usually a problem in the control valve for that circuit or a problem in the relief cartridge for that function. Remove the relief and inspect for damaged o rings and debris causing a bypass of pressure or low pressure. Also check the control valve for proper operation and damage/debris as well. Let me know
