It wasn't a Hardee I ran but it had a PTO pump on it and there was an adjustment on the pump for the pressure and I'm sure it had been screwed down for maximum pressure on the pump, had been blown and replaced with one made for 2500 pounds of cont. pressure, 3000 int. I believe. No idea whether it was the original style or not. It was a rental unit and it was probably 8 to 10 years ago and I have slept several times since then. Probably shouldn't have commented.
I do remember it had a large pressure gauge on it that you could watch to tell how hard you were loading it and it regularly it over 3,000 pounds of pressure.
