Swenson spreader - auger and spinner wont work together

    I have a new/used swenson tailgate spreader

    I just installed 4 brand new hydraulic hoses

    2 for the spinner (4') 2 for the auger (5')

    The spinner works fine by itself as does the auger

    But when I turn them both on, only the auger works and the spinner just barely barely moves, even on high speed?

    Any ideas?

    It also has a bad hydro oil leak from the auger motor on the inside aside of the auger, but I was told I need a seal kit. It appears it has leaked before I bought it.

    That's gotta be a supply issue from the tk not in your Salter. What happens when you rev the motor?
