Customer reply replied 3 years ago
Having some issues with my Grove MZ 66B Manbasket S/N 48210 Year 19981) Slow response on lift, lower, tilt, swing, of basket and boom most functions respond as normal however some times it takes 30 seconds to respond especially when cold. Once it cycles it is more responsive or immediate but not always and sometimes it will slow down during cycle and back up to speed.2) It is temperamental on travel speed also, in low speed a bit to quick on response resulting in engine stalling even if feathering control nice and easy. In high range very hard to not kill motor and then it seems to run out of power like maybe the brakes are not releasing.Calling me back is best.ThanksScott
