We use the both the 425 and 475 solo sprayers most days at work and when they start to lose pressure ( after 6 months of daily professional use) we purchase a complete seal kit and put it through them. The only part I can't work out how to remove is the inside cylinder, other than that everything else is easily removed and replaced.

After having the same problem,( no mention of this in manual),i sort help via internet. Someone had posted that a hammer and block of wood could be used, the 2x3 about a foot long is put through top of tank and on top of pressure cylinder.It does work, if you use a club hammer and the 3x2 oak, or similar! And the conviction to whack hard. Also helps if you block between underside of tank and the steel stand frame, reduces the bounce.Take care not to put block so small tube on underside of cylinder gets stopped.Good luck.

I have a Yellow Stone APW-150a pressure washer bought in 2005. The hose is cracked at the fitting that attaches to the washer. Can it be replaced or repaired?


Though I have never heard of Yellowstone appliances, I am pretty sure there is a way to get replacement parts from the company spare parts department or from other sources who sell these pressure washers. If not, try the Internet, or try the Speed shops where they sell these to people who pressure wash their cars/trucks. I am also sure there are other hoses not necessarily for the Yellowstone brand but fit perfectly well on them. Find out where they sell other brands and take your washer to them, ask them if they can sell you a hose with the right connectors to fit your washer. No salesperson can refuse to sell you a good bargain.

My s579 bobcat skid steer loader is showing the code M0414(engine oil pressure extremely low) but I checked the oil level and its ok.any idea what could be happening


Connect mechanical oil pressure gauge to check real oil pressure. If OK, replace old pressure sender unit. If actually low, are there leaks? Engine may need bearings replaced, or could be incorrect oil or oil diluted by excessive fuel/leaky injectors.

I have a newholland tm 130 that loses power and I think it is fuel related I have checked the electronic pump and that seems to have a good output any ideas


If you have good fuel pressure, Next I would remove an O2 sensor between the engine and catalytic converter. Take it for a drive. If you don't loose power, replace the catalytic converter/s. After that have a diagnoses done on the engine and transmission.

Why is my 1533 massey running sluggish no power


If this is a diesel engine, you may need to have the injectors reset with an overhead or rack job. It could also be the injector pump.

I have a cat 416b and the front bucket won't curl or raise when something is in it I checked the resolvers behind the wheel on the frame and the seals are busted but a little ball fell out of one of them...


Sounds like that little ball that fell out is a pressure check-ball. Without the ball in place and the seals repaired the hydraulic pressure will just bleed by and not lift when weight is added. You may want to get a qualified mechanic to check it for you. Sometimes that's the most economical thing to do. Watch what they do and you will know how to repair it yourself the next time.

I have cocoons that look similar to pine cones on a cedar tree ( which is now dead) and 2 rose bushes & lilac bush. Does any one know what they are?


Those are Bag Worm cocoons, they turn in a moth of some sort, you need to spray with something like this.
