I would REALLY like to speed up the hydraulics on my booms (JD 4830) but don't know much about hydraulic systems. Orafice changes don't do it so I thought maybe a different ram but I was told that the only way is to increase pressure. I am also told that if you run JD boom track that there is a speed adjustment that you can do which tells me that somewhere in the system, there is a way to increase pressure to the boom cylinders but it is only accessible though Boom track pro. Must be an electronic pressure valve somewhere?. Changing/removing the orafices makes them go DOWN fast but has no effect on going up. Any hydraulic guru's here that would have a suggestion to gain boom speed?.
