    I thought you knew, Ron, but used this as an excuse to leave the backhoe out and on the ground as an anti theft device, General Hood style.

    It's been a while since I looked at the hydraulics diagram, and I wasn't looking for anything in that circuit, but since it acts and sounds like there's a restrictor in there somewhere, I'm pretty sure there is one. Whoever finds it first, please let us know where.
    I'll try without the restrictor first, but if that turns out to be too fast to control, it's easy enough to enlarge the orifice in the restrictor and reinstall it.

    I knew you would ask...and I wish I could remember where I found it. Or if was even FLU specific. After two years of searching for FLU info I've unearthed a fair amount, much more than my brain cell can contain.
    I'll search the folder of saved stuff later, okay?

    Had a good, productive day today.

    First, I created some water diversions with the backhoe by positioning the FLU419 at the drain side of the diversion and fully extending the bucket to act as a scraper. Then pulling in the fully extended dipper while adjusting the boom height and turning the hoe towards the desired drain point. After some cleanup with shovel and rake the diversion looked pretty good for the first try.

    Back in the shop I put new hoses on the Stanley hydraulic chain saw and got the chain oiler working again. Cut a couple of logs apart to test. The saw is not going to compete with my 440 Stihl for heavy work but is nice for bucking and de-limbing smaller stuff. The advantage of the Stanley is that it is always there when needed, and does not need a jug of gas and bar oil.

    After that I wired up a wireless winch control to the UP-DOWN switch for the bucket. That will allow me to get up into the trees and use the newly acquired hydraulic pole saw. Still waiting for the correct QD fittings to arrive to test that baby.

    Only annoying thing was that I had to clean the fuel strainer next to the tank four times and wipe the small rust flakes off the screen. Next week I am going to be near my boat stuff and will check whether a bigger Racor water/gunk separator can be fitted in lieu of Mercedes' excuse for a strainer.

    OSHA approved, no doubt. And that alone makes me want to copy your idea.

    That's surprising that Daimler-Benz would go so cheap on a critical piece of engineering like that:

    - You know, their U.S. marketing message is "the best or nothing"

    But clearly the marketing is fluff, or sure seems so.

    Fortunately, OSHA does not have any jurisdiction in my neck of the woods. However, I made a sketch of a quick attack guard rail that turns the self-leveling loader into a decent aerial bucket. A safety harness is not going to be very useful if you come to rest face to face with the loader teeth.

    "Nothing" would almost be better than this clog-o-rama.
