Hi Bill, My name is***** is very possible it could be a pump problem since the functions are split between the pump sections however I recommend pulling the circuit reliefs for those functions for inspection first as well as confirming both pilot and pump signal pressures are in specs and also check the return filter for fine metal/debris indicating a pump or component failure. A lot of travel problems are related to rotary manifold seal problems and are commonly misdiagnosed. When you operate another function with the bucket or RH track does it speed up normal?

Have not tried other function while operation will try tomorrow if it works when operation of other function. What then?
Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 2 years ago

That would mean one pump is not stroking either by no signal pressure to stroke the pump to full flow or a mechanical problem with one pump

When multiple functions are operated both pumps will be in full flow if the system is working properly.... Signal pressure will shift the pump to full flow
