154 loader

Thu Nov 15, 2012 6:06 pm

I am going to build a small loader for my 154. Has anyone got one and can I run the hydraulics off of the tractor hyd. or off the pto? Didnt know if the tractor hyd would have oil enough or speed enough.

Most will tell you that the tractor hydraulics "will" operate the loader, but they have found that a remotely mounted/dedicated hydraulic pump will work faster and better. The tractor hydraulic pump is fairly small, and has a low volume, so it works rather slow.

I have a loader on my 154, uses the IHC belt drive pump. I have no idea the GPM of the pump but looks similar in size to a standard cub pump. I have also had a loader on an Fcub that had 2 inch cylinders and ran off the engine pump. Both go up and down about the same, not fast, but similar speeds.

i thank you. I have one that has three extra hydraulic connectors would be a shame not to use them.
