Re: 246C Boom slowly lowers while running

Hey, better late than never.  No, I still have not had it looked at.  Mainly because I use this piece of equipment at my cabin so it's not a money making machine and have a hard time justifying the expense of brining it in but appriciate the feedback.  On a nice sunny day I'll dig into it a little more.  Right now it's about -15 in Northern WI.  Again...thank you for the feedback!

Re: 246C Boom slowly lowers while running

Two and a half years later, a question - did the problem get fixed?   It should not have been the pump, most likely it was a defective counterbalance valve, a form of a check valve.

Could be the accumulator(s) or a bad check valve. That's something I would investigate.

246C Boom slowly lowers while running

My boom slowly lowers on it's own. I must be losing pressure but have no oil leaks.  Would this be a pump failure or something else?

 

Thanks,
