Hi
Does anyone have a procedure for bleeding air from the hydraulics on a 40 scraper?
 
I changed the hoses on the front and not working as well now.

This ought to help! 

You might need to place the scraper across a small ditch to allow the full stroke of the bowl cylinder.  That way the bowl can be lowered to the max travel.

Mike aka CJ; I received your PM late last night; looks like D4Jim answered your question...
Hope all is well, long time no see. Still have a photo of you on the D5 and Atlas plow if you want a copy.
Always room for more scrapers here by the way. Hint hint!!! JM

Thank you!
Yes D4Jim helped me. It’s working well now.
I’ll keep you posted if I decide to sell. It’s the newer serial number with flotation tires; the rims look original or maybe dealer mod.
Yes I would like a copy of your picture; really had fun. My email address is This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
