    Rental equipment is the best. Lifts the most and drives the fastest.

    I'm not hydraulic-fluent, but I'm surprised that there's not a valve built in there somewhere that keeps a pressure limit on that cylinder to avoid this sort of thing. Unless there's unexpected side loading on that piston rod it should be pretty easy to predict a never-exceed value for the cylinder.

    Will rental insurance cover that?

    Man our shop just bought a bunch of these JCBs to rent since the JLGs have had significant axle issues. These JCBs actually any good?

    I can't understand this one. Not one but 2 pistons, the other is on the opposite side of the boom. How did the boom itself not fail first? These rods are solid cold rolled steel

    It was like that when we left with it, we just failed to note it on the rental form. Besides, how hard can it be to hammer that straight again?

    Having worked on JCB's for over ten years I can tell you the check vavle on the tilt ram has broken up and this trapped the oil in these rams, these rams only keep the forks or bucket level when you lift and lower the main boom.. Unfortunately when the operator lowered the main lift ram which is a lot beefier than those two,they had to give and you ended up with this as a end result.. I've changed plenty of these...

    The real issue here is a Sunbelt Rental that isn't lime green and yellow.

    I'm going to guess they had the forks extended a good distance resting on some sort of platform and loaded it up, then backed away. When you figure the max load with the forks extended straight out all the way is probably less than a ton, it's pretty easy to overload these things. Just trying to lift, the relief would kick in and prevent the boom from lifting and doing any damage.

    I love operators. They give me so many interesting jobs to fix shit that should never have been broken

    That’s from a shock load or equipment failure. Lifting a load too heavy for the machine will lift the rear of the machine off the ground and tip forward well before this would happen.

    I'm curious about how they were able to get the load off after it happened. ...never mind, just realized it probably tipped forward

    I drive a little skid steer at work. I asked the boss when are we getting a new one. He said when this one breaks. I asked him if that was permission to break it. He thought about it then said no. Killjoy.

    First thing in a while that made my eyes bug out, also this is why you never stand under a load.

    That's cute. My customer just cracked the frame on a JCB 12k. How they did it, i don't wanna know

    Those rods are so hard. How it bent and not snapped is mind blowing.

    Wait, is the piston rod not supposed to bend?
  • Posted: February 4, 2019 15:33

    I'm surprised those bent. Those things are hardened so much I'd have expected them to snap.

    I'm reading all this about the fittings, and I don't get it. I work for a place that manufactures trench rollers and we have some special fittings. Way more the bspt. We also work on all kinds of equipment and tun into bspt and Japanese jic etc. Yet I have a hydraulic shop that carries everything I don't, and the few very random things they they don't have I can order online. Granted our machine and a few competitors run most din std fittings, they really aren't any more expensive or hard to find than anything else I my experience.
