Question about H hydraulics to run loader

Sun Dec 23, 2007 12:51 am

I have found an old trip-bucket loader for the H, thanks Pony Master :D . There are long cylinders on each side, each with its own hose. Pony said that a single line with a Tee came off the hydraulic outlet on the right side of the H it was on previously. My question is, can I run the right cylinder off the outlet on the right side, and the left cylider off the front outlet on the left side? (The rear one is delay, right?) That will make hooking it up very simple if that's the case.

Yes you can.

Depending on what model you have, you may need return lines to shod extra oil in the top of cylinder and allow it to be pushed into top of reservoir when they extend. do the cylinders have 2 hoses each, or just one? The retunr system is a T that goes into the top of the Liftall reservoir.

There is just one hose for each cylinder. Pony Master didn't say anything about a return to the top of reservior.

On some of the smaller loaders they are not needed, but on the model 30 and 31 which fit both H and M, the resorvoir does not hold enough fluid to fully extend the cylinders.

The cylinders on the #30 and the #31 have a built in reservoir in the top of the cylinder. This reservoir holds the extra hydraulic oil needed to fully extend the cylinders. The port in the top of the cylinder needs to have a hydraulic hose attached to it, and then that needs to be "teed" to the hose from the top of the opposite cylinder, and then both hoses need to be attached with a union to the belly pump fill pipe. This is the recommended installation procedure directly from the #31 operators manual.
