Single-point hydraulic connection on row-crop tractor (closed)
Single-point hydraulic connection on utility tractor (closed)
The 520M, 540M, H240, H260, and H310 Loaders can be ordered with a single-point hydraulic connection that also incorporates the connection point for any electrical needs. To disconnect the hydraulic connection between the loader and the tractor, it is necessary to relieve the hydraulic system oil pressure on the tractor.
Concealed oil lines through boom arm
Oil lines routed through the boom arm
Oil lines routed through the torque tube
Over time, increased width in tractor hoods have caused issues with available space for running traditional oil lines of a loader along the boom, making them more susceptible to damage.
To improve this situation, the oil lines have been routed through the boom arm and the torque tube, improving line protection and the appearance of the loader.
Hydraulic shut-off valve (open position)
Hydraulic shut-off valve (closed position)
A hydraulic shut-off valve is included with the H-Series Ag Loaders to ensure the loader does not lower suddenly. For example, this allows the boom to be locked out when someone is required to be located under the loader boom for service work on the tractor. It should not be used for extended periods of time unless an appropriate support stand is also utilized.
False rod cylinder
Fast bucket cycle times are important to dump the load from the bucket as quickly as possible, in order to be as productive as possible, while completing loading operations. The bucket cylinder design can have a major impact on this cycle time, especially for the mechanical self-leveling (MSL) loaders.
Therefore, all MSL M- and H-Series Loaders utilize false rod bucket cylinders. A false rod cylinder has a smaller displacement of oil requirement on the head end of the cylinder, which allows this cylinder to dump much faster than a normal cylinder.
