Webtec has released a video to teach the proper installation and setup of hydraulic attachments while using the company’s DHM Series hydraulic tester.

The video, embedded below, shows how to test the operating flow and back pressure from the excavator to such attachments as breakers, hammers and crushers. Improper installation can shorten the life of the attachment and compromise safety and efficiency. The company says its DHM Series will confirm hydraulic flow and return-line pressure to prevent such problems as rebound damage.

The video shows how to connect the tester, operate it and make adjustments, and it shows what technicians could see on the tester’s digital display. It takes viewers through the various checks, where to find valves and how to solve various problems that may be encountered.

The company says the video, which is less than 4 minutes long, can help technicians avoid problems caused by incorrect settings and parameters for hydraulic attachments.
