I've been moving a lot of dirt around my yard lately and I thought my FEL wasn't operating quite up to par. It seemed to be struggling to not only lift, but curl buckets of dirt. I ordered one of Kenny D's pressure gauges to test the system. A little research on this forum and the consensus is that the hydraulic pressure for a 1025R, should be about 1990 psi. I checked the pressure on the dump line and it in fact was a needles width under 2000 psi, so the dump function reads correct .
My question would be, should I check all 4 FEL hydraulic functions individually, or do I assume that they will all read the same? If there was a blockage in any of the other lines or quick connect fittings, wouldn't that lower the pressure?
BTW: Thanks, Kenny for the quick delivery of the pressure gauge.
