    It may and may not. It all depends on “tiredness” of components. Sauer Danfoss series servo piston does not have springs on both sides, but it uses rod and double spring on one side, so that rod changes effective area of piston between forvard and reverse side. At normal pilot pressure it doesn’t matter because there’s plenty enough to move the piston to wherever! But as components get “tired” and pressure drops the weakest link is showing up!

    You can also hook up pressure gouges and run tests to know for sure.

    If you want to test your pilot pressure at the pumps you gonna need 7/16 ORB adapter to whatever hose you connect to a gauge, or JIS BSBB hose ends sviwel run tees, at the charge pump as far as I remember is 5/16 ORB. Actually that machine has port test at almost every elbow!

    Much less frequently
    No, it just seems to get the left side moving if i switch to high and move the stick back and forth quicker than if i leave in low.

    Do the maintenance and check your fluid compatibility for the weather! Don’t forget about strainer in the joystick inlet fitting. In high speed your fluid just heats up quicker.

    BTW, It's done it for as long as i've owned it ... 300 hours (2600 total). New fluid and filters does not seem to have any effect.

    Then you need to dig deeper and run tests and find out what is going on!
