Recommendations, For Hydraulic Flow Meter

Postby Eugene » Fri May 29, 2020 11:14 am

Need recommendations for a flowmeter to check hydraulic oil pressure and gallons per minute.

Primary use will be to determine the source(s) of a power loss to a hydraulic motor that powers the left side drive of an 1816 Case skid steer. Can or could use the flowmeter on my other skid steer and the tractors.

Left and right side of the skid steer has separate, identical, hydraulic systems. The parts to the hydraulic systems are a real POA to access.

The left side sort of works, just not any where near the right sides ability. The problem is somewhere other than the hydraulic motor. Could be the pump, but I don't think so. The control system, for one side of the skid steer, contains a total of 7 different relief or check valves.
I have an excuse. CRS.

From the dyno,not sure if you can enlarge this to get the name brand, but it was an excellent quality and I assume it's still working today. I think you'll have to add a pressure gauge separate: Image

After a little searching online, the brand was Hedland. Make sure you do your homework, they have them in different sizes and different liquids.

Thanks Rick. Thought that several folks on this site had one or experience with one.

The service manual for the skid steer lists 3 different flow meters for Case equipment, by Case part number, with maximum PSI per part number.

Have been researching the flow meters currently on line. Several seem suitable with the necessary fittings. Haven't found any information on the ones listed in the service manual.

Just had a thought. There is a New Holland/Case IH dealership in town. Stop in and ask what they use or recommend. Second thought, ask what they charge for a flow meter test(s).

Again thanks, Rick
