Smokey, did you have a thread somewhere else about your gauge? I remember someone doing something to measure the weight they were lifting.
I dunno how much difference would be between any of these accumulators, but my loader only has one bottle. (~2500#capacity)
Jon, I had a hard time measuring my threads with a pitch gauge, im sure the shop is good enough to tell easily!
I tried using the gauge reading with a weight scale to measure payload. Loads picked with single point with a chain repeatable. Grapple not so much. Any lever arm difference influences the loader pressure.
What the pressure gauge did show was the dynamic pressure spikes from carrying loads were significantly reduced with the soft ride system. Simply a great option.
The hydraulic system is protected on the pump side with relief valves nominally 3000psi. But from the control valves to the cylinders no protection from external forces. So when you lift, curl and push your bucket or grapple into a load the lift pressure can about double confirmed by gauge. That’s why improper back dragging or pulling with grapple lids can damage your equipment with higher than designed operating pressures.
