    Default The knob under the seat?


    On the 4110 I looked at, there is a knob under the seat
    which the sales lady said allowed you to turn down the
    amount of fluid running through the system. So, for
    instance, if you had it turned low, the FEL would lower
    more slowly?

    When would you use this feature? Do I have the idea right?

    I believe it's to control the rate of drop on the 3 point hitch. If you close it all the way, the hitch won't drop at all.

    With my limited experience, it's kind of difficult to set the
    drop rate of the 3 point hitch without an implement or
    other load on the hitch. Before I got a loader, I used
    a boom pole to set logs on my sawmill and I really liked
    how I could "fine tune" the drop rate so I wouldn't wipe
    out the mill.

    Everybody is correct. For example if you had a really heavy object you would want to screw the knob in to restrict the 3 pt. flow a little so it would not drop as fast as if it were set wide open. Kind of a safety thing too so your implement does not drop really fast.

    Well not EVERYBODY... The Saleslady seemed to think it would slow down the FEL...

    Oh one more thing don't close the valve all the way and try to operate the 3 point. Also don't close the valve completely and think it will hold the implement up in the air if you wish to work on it. Use blocks or stands too.

    Yellowsocks is right, which makes everybody on this board right. Unless, of course, the saleslady is surfing this discussion right now...
