HYDRAULIC SYSTEM DESCRIPTION
High pressure mast hydraulic system consists of:
Side shift cylinder
Side tilt cylinder
Container lock cylinders
Oil flows from hydraulic tank (1) to hydratdic pump (2) then to con-
trol valve (3). The control levers are moved to let oil go through the
control valve to lift cylinder (4), tilt cylinders (5), side shift cylinder
(6), side tilt cylinder (7) or container lock cylinders (8). Oil returns
from the cylinders through the control valve and back to the tank.
