Hydraulic pump on ifor TT85G

Recommended Posts

Guys

Any ideas of a cheaper alternative to a genuine ifor williams pump on a tipping trailer...it lifts up so far and just spins as if now doing anything. 

 

Are they repairable? 

Is there a similar pump from something else that will do the job? 

 

Thanks in advance 👍

Re: replacement...maybe this?

WWW.FLOWFITONLINE.COM

"Flowfit 12 V DC single acting hydraulic tipper power pack, 4.5 / 8 litre reservoir c/w 2 button pendent. 5 l/min @ 160 bar...

much cheaper than the full bore Ifor Part though.

Fill the oil up - sounds just like a low oil issue if it gets everything moving in the first place.

The flowfit pumps are excellent value for money but make sure you get one with a big enough oil reservoir...

Also, unless you pay quite a bit extra you will lose the manual pump facility with the flowfit version.

Which is handy when ever so slightly overloaded.

I discovered once when I forgot my lead, that you can put a piece of wire in the plug outlet from the top left to the bottom and it will make the trailer go up , r

top right to bottom to make it go down.

Made my tipper wireless now which avoids having to have a  lead, and meaning you can tip from the vehicle seat!

Yes now that it can be bypassed as long as you have shutoff key.

Suction pipe in tank or drive dog between motor and pump.
