    I will exclude this. The slewing is done full smoth. Independent of the position there is no mechanical grinding or vibration. The cabin rotates like "welle greased". Even if the noise at the end of the slew occurs, there is no mechanical impact to sense.

    I will make a service in the comming weeks and change the hydraulic oi. While this action I will make a trial to find the origin of the noise.

    So long

    Great, one fault eliminated.

    I changed the hydraulic oil in the summer. Even though it says 33 litres, the actual volume you will be able to fill in is around 18...20 litres. I have an extra can of oil because bought too much.

    Waiting for your report...
