    Both use a lot of hydraulic power. The pump can only produce so much. Happens with just about anything hydraulic.

    It should do both, make sure it is full of hydro oil and replace the filter.

    I agree on replacing the hydraulic filter. You probably have restricted flow causing the problem.
