(1) A New specification is the performance that can be expected for a new machine. A “Rebuild” specification is the performance that can be expected after rebuilding the components of a system.
(2) Performance beyond “Service Limit” specifications is an indication of the following problems: improper adjustment, wear, damage of relief valves and damage of pumps.

Table 2
Relief Valves  Pressure change With One Turn Of Adjustment Screw 
Main valves  14400 kPa (2100 psi) 
Line relief valve  9300 kPa (1350 psi) 
Swing relief valve  6800 kPa (985 psi) 
Travel crossover relief valve  13340 kPa (1925 psi) 
Pilot relief valve  620 kPa (90 psi) 

Note: Pressure values in Table 2 are approximate values. Use a pressure gauge for adjustment.

Note: Normal operations of the engine and pumps are necessary for the pressure adjustments. If the results of the pressure adjustment are not correct, then check the engine and the pump characteristic curve. Slow output flow from the pump is an indication of air in the hydraulic system. Make sure that no air is present in the hydraulic system. Refer to Testing and Adjusting, "Main Hydraulic Pump Air - Purge".
