Air doesn't drive press

I suspect that you will need a pneumatic pump to replace the hand pump to get this to work as you need a multiplier to get the pressure high enough to make the press work at full pressure.

I have MXM 155 pro. I picked up from service center. They did not add hydraulic oil. I drove it about 5 miles and transmission locked up. No oil was showing on sight glass. What problems am i looking at?

the problems will be expensive as there are shafts bearings and bushes that will all be damaged from the lack of oil. I would be making enquiries at the service centre as to what sort of workshop insurance they have to cover that sort of error as it should have had oil levels checked before it was released to you.

Bottle jack leaks at release

Mabee the hard drive has failed . try entering bios and see if the hard drive is recognised .If not try turning the computer off unplug it then reconnect the drive data cable and power cable
then re- start the computer and see if it is recognised. some models of older hard drives needed a driver installed during set up -- you usually have to put the driver on a floppy disc and hit the f6 button when prompted by windows set up to install third party drivers . I hope this helps

I noticed my press was leaking oil. so I un-screwed the knob {the pressure or release knob} not knowing that it would pop out, well, i lost a small amount of oil. I put it back in and filled the pump up...

The problem that you are having is because there is air in the hydraulic ram. Their could be two ways to get the air out.If the pressure gauge is on top of the ram remove it and pump fluid until it comes out of the hole where the gauge was. Now all of the air should be out of the ram and it should work properly. Another way of fixing the problem if the hose from the pump goes to the top side of the ram unbolt the pump. Hold the pump above the ram , pump the handle repeatedly you should be able to work the air back into the pump just think it is just like bleeding the brakes on your car .

Hello My PC 18ga brad nailer its piston wont retr...

Check the regulator gauge on your air compressor to make sure you have enough air pressure going to your nailer. After replacing my nailer because the driver wouldn't retract, I discovered, when the replacement nailer had the same problem, that I had somehow turned the regulator and decreased the pressure. Now I have two fully operational nailers.

Can't find hydraulic oil filter on my case 680e loader/ backhoe

Should be located, from the seat, on the right hand side just in front of the cab/ ROP frame

Easy to tell due to the 1.5" hoses going to it

Hope this helps
