I'm using a direction control valve to switch between two cylinders. When I switch cylinders the extend line is a returns to the tank should I use the needle vale in the return line or the extend line or both?
A: If both are single-acting cylinders attached to the same moving piece and extend on one creates retract force on the other so that they function as one double-acting cylinder; one valve can be put in one of the lines and it will restrict both fluid pathways. If this is not the case, please contact our Product Support department to further describe your application.

I am trying to slow both directions on a two way cylinder. Do I need one of these needle valves on both lines or will it work just on one??
A: One of these valves will slow a cylinder in both directions when placed in one of the work lines to that cylinder.

When installing this item inline to slow down a front end loader should it be placed in the return line to the pump? It is a front mounted crankshaft unit.
A: It is not recommended to place this in the main pressure line to the valve, or the return line to the pump. This is meant to go between a work port and an actuator. Restricting the return line can lead to excessive pressure in the low pressure passages in the valve, excessive pressure in the pump, cavitation of the pump, among other problems.
