I want to run a no 28 in a ditch and would like to power it off a stanley power pack 2000 psi 4 gpm. I have flow control but no psi adjustment to bring the psi down to 800. I was thinking I could lower the rpm to idle with a gauge and see what psi is made. I also have a enerpac 10k psi electric unit and I think the relief valve can be adjusted. I doubt I am the first person to try this and am curious what others may have done in the past. The hydraulics only operate the cylinders the facer on ours is electric.

The 2k psi unit shouldn't be a problem unless the flow rate causes the carriage speed to be an issue. From the factory, the components of the carriage are rated to 2000 psi.

The 10k psi will be VERY dangerous unless there is a pressure control that can drop it to 2k psi or so. Our equipment is not designed to be run with that kind of pressure.

Thanks! Josh
My stanley power packs are all 2000 psi and I have a choice of 5 GPM or 8 GPM depending on rpm's. Do you know what the factory 26 GPM is?

Sorry I meant the GPM on the no 28 machine, the 26 is a manual and I have been looking at buying one of those.

Check this post. http://forums.mcelroy.com/fusion/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=814 The attachment lists the hydraulic info for most of our machines. The rolling 28 chassis provides 5 gpm and the TracStar 28 provides 8 gpm to the same carriage.
