Customer Question

I am 56 years old guy with an mechanical engineering background.
And I am trying to help my friend's son, 27 year old man in the tree business.
This young man recently purchased a used Altec boom truck; LR III 55.
It has some problems.
One problem is the lower mid-boom hydraulic cylinder.
It was leaking.
So, he removed part of it and had seals replaced.
Now, he is having some trouble with reassembly,
because they did not mark or photograph hydraulic lines,
nor did they mark the orientation of the valve on the end of the cylinder.
There are 3 lines on the end and the valve that we need a reference or drawing
to correctly show how to correctly assemble.

My name is ***** ***** I will assist you with your question today.

I'm an independent contractor and I don't get paid until a rating has been made.

We can go back and forth as needed to help resolve the issue you are having. Follow ups are free after ratings, so rate in confidence!

Can I get the serial numbers off the boom as well as the model number so I can see if I can obtain a maintenance manual on this? It usually has the hydraulic routing information and I looked through all of mine to find that I don't have this model.
