I have a Takeuchi...

I have a Takeuchi tb175 and it keeps overheating when I use the hydrolics lots?

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the complete model and serial number of your machine?

TB175 #17510266

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing this yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes I am I have blown air thru the rad and have taken out the thermostats. My next guess would be the hydrolic filter

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the construction mechanic to know before I connect you?

I am not sure

I am not sure why it keep overheating
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 5 years ago

Do you have a temperature test gun, to check the hydraulic oil cooler? Harbor freight about $30. It shoots a beam and is direct reading , look for hot spots in the hydraulic lines and the cooler. If hydraulics are overheating , it will overheat engine . Oil cooler may be plugged, or it may have to be removed form radiator area, and a new cooler with it's own fan , installed if hydraulics seem to be operating ok.

Would u think that if the hydraulic filter was plugged it might not be circulating fast enough?
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 5 years ago

It never hurts to change it, but filter is on suction, not likley causing overheat.
