We commonly called that a hydro spring in my neck of the woods and you are correct in saying it's a cushion for the hydraulics,usually in front of it was a tee piece lever to turn it on and off,you would notice the difference if you have a full bucket and drop it down a bit if the hydro spring was off it would stop abruptly and give a jerk,if it was on the spring would compress and the stop was smoother,it was turned off when grading as the hydraulics were more positive without the cushion, I think the hydro springs were on all IH Drotts models.

 Re: DROTT SKIDLOADER in reply to AJ., 04-14-2013 12:56:13  
Thanks AJ

Kind of thought that was its purpose.

Either way it should not affect not having any up pressure.

going to hook up a pressure gauge to the lift spool and see what is going on there than trace it out.

i did crack the lift lines and get fluid when the valve is operated.

Starting to look like a problem in the cylinders but I dont understand why I have good down pressure.

Like I stated earlier I can lift the machine front up with the loader with the down pressure.

Just wont even try to lift the loader
