I do not have this problem on my machine, but I am only flowing about 5 GPM and I also have 1/4" hoses going to the HTL to help restrict flow.Pilot-operated lock valves may chatter when used in cylinder circuits with heavy loads. A restricting orifice can be plumbed into the hydraulic line to reduce this problem.
I work on my mower deck(JD445), and I'd like to turn the tractor off@stone7: If you have not figured it out, I would suggest 1/4" hoses for your HTL as well:thumbup1gif:
What are you doing with your forks that the leakdown is causing a problem for you?
I would have to look. They might be 3/8. I purchased them from CnC when I bought the top link. They just asked me how long I wanted them.You guys got it right, there is the possibility you will sacrifice smoothness with the DPOCV.

There unfortunate is no free lunch here.
@Brian: What size hoses feed your HTL?
My top link with a DPOCV from CCM can be moved very smoothly. It's on my lever operated factory 3rd rear SCV circuit and I've never had an issue.But Ken, wouldn't putting those on the loader make it hard to move it in small increments as the pressure would have to break the valve open?
My HTL, like you have pictured is not smooth at all. Its jerky when it moves.
