    I moved my mini ex at the shop and it is traveling slower than normal. Also, I can hear a hiss. It is the same sound I hear when one of the cylinders has reached the end of its stroke. Also, I can't travel and operate the hyd thumb at the same time now. I think it could be a diverter valve but am not sure how to trouble shoot it. Take's website doesn't offer any tech manuals. Thanks.

    Hinge the cab up and look for linkage binding, that's usually the #1 problem with dirt and crap under the pedals.

    Thats a possibility. I will try that.

    Sometimes a linkage or cable is still pulling/pushing enough to divert some of the flow away from another function, and travel functions can divert a lot more.
