    I believe it controls how fast the 3pt hitch travels in it's downward movement. As you tighten it the hitch will travel slower.
    I can't control my day but I can control my attitude.

    Probably the hydraulic control for the rate-of-drop on the lower arms of your 3pt hitch.

    Not on mine. I fixed mine. Re-plumbed it. Now it re-pressurizes the on-board keg.
