Re: New owner of Hymac 580 B

Andy this is a scan from the parts manual that only quotes Hymac numbers; the bearing appears to be the same for each side, looks like no3 in the parts breakdown, my advice would be to look at the bearing on the opposite side of the shaft, that should be the same and take both bearings to a local be...

Re: New owner of Hymac 580 B

Andy I have suggested the seals in the dipper arm cylinder are the issue as my machine has a similar problem that I have yet to solve; Tony Flint who was a Hymac trained apprentice suggested that the cylinder seals could be the problem with my machine.
