Viking Forklift Troubleshooting

Post by Alf » Mon Oct 29, 2018 10:30 pm

Hi all, I'm working on a Viking DL25 forklift and am having some issues. The entire hydraulic system is severely overheating, to the point where you can't touch it and the pressure buildup is damaging the control valve/ causing leaks. Any ideas on how to fix this? Any input greatly appreciated, thanks!

Also wasn't sure where to post this, if there's a better option please lmk

Hi, we will move the topic to a misc, but as for your question, we had the similar issue on a jungheinrich, turns out it was the wrong oil type straight from the factory,
