I thought that was the way but when in float it sounds like the pump is working when in float I usually try to lower the mower but some times i forget it in float i do not want the oil warming to much more than necessary
I use my 1655 with the mower all the time and have never put it in the float postion.I put the mower down ,hold the lever untill the hyd,squeal and It's good to go.There's no need for the lever to be in float while mowing.The linkages on the mower deck are slotted so that's where the float on the deck comes from.Unless yours is set up different then mine.Larry
Just a thought could your valve been changed somewhere along the way and your valve does not have a float position and is sticking in the lower position. The float valve should have 4 positions were the other have 3 positions. No way should you have a hydraulic load on your system in the float position.
Sorry guys I have been running heavy equipment for most of my life everything from mini tack hoes to the cat 320 and d4 up to a d11.... the 11 I ran only for an hour but I tell you she will dig a basement in a hurry, I am quite familiar with most hydraulics other than closed center system I am was not familiar with, I am unaware of why this is making the pump work when in float. It is all factory original, as for using it in float it is just easier to put it there and then pull it out when I need to lift. Thanks for all of the suggestions
We had D7s and HD16s in Thailand (532 Construction Engineers).
I would give my right arm just to get in the cab of one of those 11s.
Those suckers can put dirt from one place to another in short order.
ya it was a real experience to operate that d11, you get in the cab looking for a throttle lever. Nope none there just a rocker switch she is either wide open or idle, then you look for steering clutch levers or at least like other high track cats a
steering control lever with the shifter nope just two little levers that you operate with your fingers which by the way you really don't operate much when making a cut. When your reclaiming you kind of point her in the right direction and then start pushing you can actually
steer it some what with the tilt of the blade making her dig harder on one side. The blade on that girl is the size of a wall on your house, about a story and a half really!
