Manitou MXT 1840:
Telehandler Boom Jerking / Vibrating Problem

Hi Guys!

This is regarding our MTX1840 2016 model.
We have never had problems with this little red, until now.
During the descent of the boom, you can see how aggressively it vibrates - shaking the entire machine.

We checked the valve mechanics by using it on another equipment - it worked absolutely fine.

We were also being advised to change the seals by some experts - Main Telescopic boom cylinder seal, well we have ordered for the new ones now.

I just wanted to understand do you guys think the seal is the real problem. Cause if it was also the seal then the boom would have gradually descended on its own when not operational.

I would really appreciate everyone's expert advice on this...

Cheers!
Ali
