Hello all. Just took delivery of a new 1025r FILB with a 60mmm. Have about 10 hrs on it so far. Wow what a nice machine.
I have plenty of newbie questions but i'll limit this thread to hydraulics.
I've been taking off the loader and back hoe each day so I can mow our property and for practice etc.
It's been very hot here in NE PA the last few days. And both implements sat in the sun while I was mowing.
The loader and back hoe come off no problem, but both days, when I went to re connect each implement, the pressure in the hydraulic lines of the loader and back hoe had risen so high, that I just could not get the hoses to re connect!. So, both days I just let them sit until the sun when down and they cooled off, and then, no problem. Everything goes together fine.
When the pressure was low enough to re connect, you can take your finger and push on the male hose ends and they will release, squirting a bit of hydraulic fluid out. When I'm having trouble, no amount of force from me can get the line to release.
Has anyone else had this experience?
More of a symptom of the heat, than a defect it seams.
Just baffled. Thanks, George
