Touch Control Speed

Postby ajhbike » Thu Jul 20, 2017 10:07 am

Is there an adjustment on the TC to slow down the oil flow when raising or lowering implements? Mine is pretty fast and lively

I don't think there is any way to slow it down. Do you have a fast hitch on the tractor?

Slowing the engine down gives you some control.

Does the TC have more power to lift as the engine rpm's increase?

Yes/no/sometimes. The power limit of the touch control is managed by an internal pressure relief valve. Use the engine throttle and touch control lever to control the hydraulics speed of operation.

I usually set the engine throttle at about 1/3 to initially set my mower deck height, then full throttle to start mowing, or to lift the deck off the shop floor. If I need to change the mower deck height while mowing, I just bump the touch control lever.
I have an excuse. CRS.
