Got Alice out and checked to see how much she can lift. Put the 140 lb. Box Blade on, added 2 of my 40 lb. suitcase weights and she did fine. Added another 30 lb. cast weight and that's about it. So 250 lbs. is the max Alice can lift. Not bad as far as I am concerned.

I got Alice back out for more tests on lifting. I had an issue pop up after the last improvement on the 3-point lift. You can find that here. Starts in post #61.

Anyways, I hooked the box blade back up. Added the 160 lbs. of suitcase weights i made. That's 300 lbs. Lifted that fine. Went to the relief in the valve and tweaked it to max at 1000 lbs. Added another 70 lbs. And here is the pic.

Changed the one 30 lb. weight for the 50 lb.

Then added the 30 lb. back in, that adds up to 420 lbs. on my calculator.

And all this at less than 1/2 throttle! :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana: :worshippy1:

 

 

I am extremely HAPPY! There must have been something stuck in the relief! No more loud squeals at 1000 psi.
