Hydraulic Pressure Gage
The gage measures pressure generated by the
main hydraulic pump in pounds per square inch
(psi), from 0 to 3000 psi.
Gage should measure 100 to 300 psi with hydraulic
pump operating conveyor, upper rear door down,
and hydraulic fluid at normal operating temperature.
Meters flow of hydraulic fluid to conveyor.
Valve can be manually adjusted to increase or
decrease flow and, therefore, the operating speed
Monitors temperature of hydraulic fluid in the reservoir.
Temperature is measured in degrees Fahrenheit.
Gage is graduated in 20°F increments from 120° to
Hydraulic fluid temperature should not exceed 160°F.
