How to reset or remove the hydraulic ram hose-burst valve on the Simpro Dumpmaster bin lifter.
Some models of Dumpmaster are fitted with a hose-burst valve, which automatically closes if the flow out of the ram exceeds ~10 litres/min. This very high flow rate would normally only occur if there was a failure in the hydraulic system.
If the hose-burst valve does close, the hydraulic system must be repaired, then the ram extended slightly before it will reset.
On occasions the hose burst valve may become faulty and it may be desirable to remove the burst valve so that the machine can continue to function.
The hose burst valve is mounted to the ram port and is underneath the ram cover.
The hose burst valve cartridge may be unscrewed from the port as per the video below.
