Cat master tech Can you tell me how to adjust the flow on the Aux Hyd
Cat 430F SN TRDF00259

Sure, please standby while I look up the details.

Which control are you using? The loader auxiliary or the backhoe auxiliary?

Are you using an electric foot pedal, thumb rocker or manual pedal?

Did you set the flow diverter valve to bypass the return flow to tank?

The factory control should be the thumb rocker on the rear joystick (usually right hand) and is electronic.

A field add-on could be anything so, I just want to be certain it is factory.

The flow settings are done with CAT ET program by the dealer. See below for the specs' if you have a licensed version of ET.

I do have a licensed cat et do you need the factory password ***** change this

No, you should not. Just go to the configuration for the implement controls and change the values for the selected ports.

You would only need a password ***** the option is not installed and it is part of an upgrade feature.
