Re: Hymac Excavators

Malcolm the guy who owns the 5C that was at Welland is called Christopher Ball; I know of two other machines owned by the same person, one for parts the other for renovation, when I next see him I will ask the question about the engine cover.

A spool is a control valve that lets hydraulic fluid flow to the ram in each direction as required; a drag link is usually the bit that connects the steering box or ram to the axle on the one side of a machine. :thumbup:

Re: New owner of Hymac 580B
