• Machines auxiliary hydraulic lines must be bi-flow or two way flow. Any improper setting or malfunction in the bi-flow auxiliary lines may result in high pressure situation inside the motor that could potentially cause the motor seals to fail. In this case, the motor is not covered under warranty. If in doubt, have the machine’s auxiliary hydraulic system checked by a professional and verified as properly functioning and within the hydraulic requirements of the Black Splitter motor type.
