    The hydraulic system on my PW press started to operate slow, then it stated to operate very slow and now it is just barely working. I tried strong language and that did not help. Fluid level is fine. Have I blown a gasket or something?

    I called Dick at the PW factory and he gave me some things to look for and do. Great service.

    Bill- I don't know at this time what is going on. Dick, at the PW factory told me to first check the relief valve on the side of the tank. Make sure the screw is turned in. Then, the next thing is to replace the gaskets in the ram attached to the machine. PW offers kits to do this.
