Hi my name is***** will be glad to try to help. What is the complete model with any dashes and serial number?

Also:

1. Has there been any work on the hydraulic system on any components or has the system been opened up for any reason prior to this occurring?

2. Can you give a detailed description of this material or upload a picture using the paperclip icon above the chat box?

Just for confirmation pull, cut a sample, squeeze excess oil in a vise from the sample, and inspect the return filter in the tank to see if it made it to the return filter and if there is any fine metal like metallic glitter in the return filter.

Is it possible someone may have vandalized his machine. Not sure what in the system would produce paper unless someone used tape or something on a port and forgot about it going back together maybe? Or a filter that had come apart in the past

pulled filter, cut ,squeezed oil out ,afew flakes of metal and a little black oil came onto shop towel
Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 2 years ago

Thanks for the update. Fine metal is a sign of component failure occurring. Could you upload a picture of this metal and paper material? The paperclip icon up top allows you to upload documents.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
was not enough flakes to even worry about probably produced when pump starved for oil when screen plugged however ,i believe i have found the problem , fixing , and going to try it thanks
Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 2 years ago

Thanks for the update. Keep me posted but also keep an eye on the fine metal flakes as if you continue to find them it means the pump or component is progressively getting worse. Let me know
