    MTL Attachments- not a good experience...

    The one on the left looks like a radial piston motor and the one on the right looks like a Char Lynn esq motor. They both could be similar displacement

    I won a Skid Steer at an auction but have just discovered the meter has been tampered with badly.

    The meter reading is for the most part just a number and used by buyers to assume the machine is still in good shape/ life left in it. A machine with 10,000 hours on it could be just as reliable as one with 2,000. The real difference is going to be on the hammer price

    Terex TL842C Hydraulic Info

    From what I remember DR control is pressure comp. DFR is load sensing. DFLR is load sensing w hp control. Are you sure it is a problem with the pump and not a leak downstream causing the pump to load/ unload. They are very reliable.... but maybe that is why it was parked
