with the double action cylinders installed on the FEL  :dancingbanana:

 

One thing that I do need to address is the SPEED at which it works...this rascal is FAST unless I'm VERY gentle on the levers.

 

I need to find some way to get it slowed down.  Is there a way to limit the flow of the fluid?

Does the pump have a pulley on it?You could try putting a bigger pulley on it to slow the pump down.Or install a regulator.

 

Something like this.Looks like a good price for 1.

I agree with Eric, if you put a couple reducing valves on it it should solve your problem.

Would something like this work if it is on the input side of the control valves?

OB all you have to do is drill and tap one fitting on each cylinder and install an orfice. I have done that many times and the most recent was on my log lift on my wood splitter.

OB,what I know about hyd systems is about 1% above nuthin'. That said, while the flow restrictor looks good, in my head, it couldn't be on the input side unless you have a way to get whatever is left over back to the tank. If you resist flow, doesn't there have to be pressure buildup or an overflow somewhere?

It sounds as if you need to slow down your GPS, not lower your psi... Pump speed may be where you need to look. Any way to do that?

If you use this flow control valve where you marked it on the input side of your control valve, you have to be sure that there is a pressure relief valve built in your pump or else you will destroy your pump. You will also have a lot of heat generated in the pump.

 

Best thing to do is to slow down the rpm of the pump or find an other pump with a lower flow rate or you can use 2 flow control valves like this http://www.northernt...39417_200339417

 

 and mount each in the lines to the cylinders just after your control valve. This is the same as gravely-power suggested only here you can adjust it .

 

If you want a perfect control in each direction use 4 of this type http://www.northernt...36350_200336350

 

and mount each one in the lines to the cylinders just behind the control valve. In this way you can control both directions. Be sure to turn the flow direction of the valves right.
