Keep in mind I am a hydraulics novice if you are inclined to answer back. It turned out to be a bit to fast to mix with.

You will need to decide...

I was sold a Prince Hydraulic flow control valve with relief, model RDRSand was told this would easily reduce my speed. My question is, if I connect the Prince valve inline to the auger motor as normal, do I have to use the return port on the new valve and connect to some kind of reservoir? It has three ports. It's a fully adjustable valve by the way, from slow to fast.


The Bobcat has two auxiliary hoses. Flow to motor, and return to reservoir obviously. If the new flow control valve is inserted in the flow to the motor hose, will the auger motor not just use the amount of fluid pressure it wants depending on flow control valve position, slow or fastmove fluid thru the motor and back to reservoir thru existing return line, or will the pressure build up at the flow control valve have to be bypassed by using the port on the valve?

If the valve return port has to be used, is Hydraulic control valve hookup a way to return it to the existing Bobcat fluid reservoir?

If yes, how would I do that?

I would soooo appreciate some help here guys. Help to hook up Prince flow control valve Here is how to connect it. CF - Controlled flow goes to hyd motor.


EF - Excess flow should go to tank. I believe the relief valve is set to psi, at 10 GPM. You will need to put a load on the motor and crank the pressure up to whatever you need Your hyd motor will develop the pressure determined by the load.
