Rockwheel installation, like any hydraulic attachment installation should include a flow test and adjustment on the excavator, backhoe or skid steer loader. This assures that the attachment is receiving the correct amount of flow and that the relief pressure is set accordingly. These numbers will be different for each and every Rockwheel model and will ideally differ according to the application. Alpine always recommends flow and pressure settings for each RockWheel that goes out the door. 

This video takes you step-by-step through the flow test and installation process, which is pretty easy with the right tools. Check it out here:
