If only I could get the lugs calibrated to fit all the local potholes it could be a smooth ride but they might just foul the Terrano arches a bit. :problem:
I can feel a new TV program coming on. "Yorkshire Hotrod".
Nearly forgot, all the potholes are being repaired rather quickly with the Tour de Yorkshire passing through the village next month.

Mini skid loader

Already modded ours with extra counter weights, adjustable drop plate, seat, and rear bucket/impliment carrier.
A proper timber grab is currently on the bench of healing being modded to fit once i'v designed a rotator bracket

I'v been meaning to put a post up actually. Does anyone know about hydraulic drives? (Making em turn faster :D )

Adam, >>>

"I'v been meaning to put a post up actually. Does anyone know about hydraulic drives? (Making em turn faster :D )"

It would be a case of increasing the hydraulic oil flow through rate from the pump without increasing the maximum pressure within the hydraulic motors :?: Modern machines are designed to operate at set speeds of movements for their tracks and hydraulic arms etc. Health and Safety issues would also dictate how fast a modern machine would be allowed to operate when other workmen might be in close proximity :?:
More volume also needs larger ID pipework and valve spool capacity etc. :?:

The maximum pressure limits would be on spec tags on the pump and each motor.

At a guess "expensive to upgrade" on a new machine :?:

I was hoping against hope that there might be a restriction in the flow somewhere acting as a speed governer

I'v been changing gearing in things for years but never messed about with hrdraulic drives
I reckon theres lots of flow from the pump but its restricted at the road wheels. Not a bad idea to be fair cos its a wheelie machine as it is lol

Adam.
Bigger diameter drive wheels or tyres or both would give you more forward or reverse movement per revolution of your hydraulic drive motors, :think: but one down side would be that you would be making the centre of gravity of the skid steer higher off the ground regarding stability :?: .

Yeah already thought of that one mate :thumbup:

A sensible increase works out at an extra .6 mph iirc
its a gain but not worth a new set of tyres for...that will have to wait till these wear out
