I am trying to run a mower with a remote cylinder, took of the lift cylinders, plugged the left line and hooked the remote to the right cylinder hose. The lift seems slow, and a good percentage of the time the thing will not drop.
Move the lever to the drop position, nothing happens, wait a few or several minutes and the thing will drop, nothing but waiting seems to work.

Any suggestions would sure be welcome.

Steve

UNDER YOUR SEAT , ON THE DECK IS A PORT FOR A REMOTE CYLINDER ON A CA. IT MAY BE CAPPED AND NEED A COUPLING. YOU MUST ALSO ADJUST THE MANUAL VALVES ON THE HYDRO CONTROL TO MAKE IT WORK PROPERLY. GOOD LUCK

If you are using a two way cylinder as a one way, you need to vent the unused side. Instead of a solid plug, drill a hole in the plug, insert a cotter key to partially block the hole, and screw that in the cylinder. (same type vent as on some gearboxes). Or buy a vented plug from a hyd supply store.

Sure do thank you, but it is a one hose cylinder.

When you mentioned plugging one side I thought you meant a side on the cylinder. If you plugged a side of the remote outlet, sometimes, like on JD tractors, one side of the remote works better on one-way cylinders than the other side does. Operator manual tells which one to use. Also, the manual can tell you if the remote valve can be set for a float position. Example, using a 148 loader on a 3020, the boom valve can be set to allow float in one position while maintaining power up and power down, just by re-hooking the linkage under the cowl.

Just noticed the heading on your post was for a CA, so then I would suspect the problem is in your tractor valve, like another said.

you need to narrow donw if the problem is the tractor or the mower. i would put a tee in the line with a valve on the open leg of the tee. raise up mower and then try to "float" down. when it sticks, crack the valve open and it should float down. if so, the oil is not getting bach thru the hydraulic vavle, such as spring or ball stuck. if it dont drop and sticks, you have something stuck in the cylinder or hose. another question, did it work o.k. prior to using the remote cylinder? can you connect the valve back to another implement and test the hydraulic valve??
