The second generation of industry-exclusive RTP Gen 2 with ESL provides a practical solution for operators with daily, repetitive, material handling needs. RTP allows the operator to set different position points for the loader with the flick of the wrist, activating the detent in electronic joysticks. With the second generation of RTP, operators can set application profiles rather than entering position points each time an application is in use. RTP Gen 2 with ESL removes repetition and fatigue from loader applications.

Accessories and Attachments

Buckets

The high-volume bucket is intended for use with lighter-density high-volume materials. The bucket capacity makes this an effective tool for handling snow, wood shavings, and other loose materials.

Materials bucketMaterials bucket
#

Materials buckets may be used for loading dirt, gravel, feed, and light materials as well as scraping, digging, and other general-purpose task

 

NOTE: Materials buckets are not compatible with replaceable cutting edges or digging teeth.

Cutting Edges

Digging teeth can be added to the heavy-duty bucket for easier digging in hard ground or for breaking loose hard-packed materials such as manure or silage. Digging teeth are not compatible with replaceable cutting edges.

Grapples

Five-tine round bale/silage grapple with grilleFive-tine round bale/silage grapple with grille
#

All of the H-Series Loaders use the same five-tine pin-on grapple. The advantages of this grapple are:

  • The pin-on method puts the least amount of stress possible on the bucket.
  • The grapple has a wide stance, making it more difficult to twist.

High-performance operators will choose the five-tine grapple for its increased durability and load-carrying capacity. Advantages include:

  • The ability to handle two large round bales instead of one (where loader capacity allows).
  • Strong grapple arms allow the bucket capacity to be increased by almost twice the amount of normal bucket capacity in materials such as silage.

The grapple is equipped with twin cylinders to provide excellent clamping force. 

NOTE: The center tine of the five-tine grapple is slightly off center to avoid contact with the placement of optional digging teeth.

NOTE: The grapple is not compatible with materials or high-volume buckets.

Loader Suspension System

#
#

All R-Series Loaders have to option for loader suspension systems. Activated from the operator station, the suspension system reduces the shock experienced when traversing rough terrain. By reducing this shock, the operator is more comfortable in seat and there is a less likely chance of material loss from the bucket. When carrying gravel to a waterway, an operator may experience spillage from bumpy ground. With the suspension system, the shock of these bumps is lessened and the material is kept safely in the bucket.

Miscellaneous

For those who frequently scrape on concrete, a replaceable cutting edge will greatly extend the life of the bucket:

  • 1850-mm (73-in.) width replaceable cutting edge
  • 2150-mm (85-in.) width replaceable cutting edge
  • 2450-mm (96-in.) width replaceable cutting edge

The heavy-duty hood guard is compatible with 7030, 7030 Premium, 6615, 6715, 7220, 7320, 7420, and 7520 Tractors.

 

The basic function is to:

  • Help protect the tractor grille and hood from falling debris or stationary objects such as a wagon or mixer
  • Allow for lighting at night

 

The hood guard:

  • Can be used with or without the tractor front weight bracket but not with the actual front weights while using the loader (this would overload the front axle)
  • Cannot be used with a front hitch

 

It is highly recommended to purchase a front weight bracket when using a loader. The hood guard is designed to be slightly rearward of the front weight. This is so the front weight is the first point of contact against lower stationary objects.

 

If a front weight is not used, the lower bar can be moved downward to improve the protection of the grille below the lights.

 

The features of the hood guard include:

  • Folds down to allow the hood to open and provide access to the battery and filter
  • Extra steel behind the mainframe to increase strength
  • High height to better protect the top of the hood

If swapping implements quickly is required, look to the hydraulic remote implement latch. Switching from a bucket to a bale spear can now be accomplished quickly, with limited movements of the loader, and without leaving the operator’s seat.

 

The hydraulic remote implement latch is powered by a hydraulic accumulator, which collects and stores excess oil generated through the normal operation of the boom (curl, dump, lift, lower). To activate the device, the two switches installed in the right-hand side of the operator’s station are pressed simultaneously by the operator. This action releases the oil, and unlocks the implement.

 

This feature does not require a third-function hydraulic system.

This kit includes the common tractor and loader wiring harness and hardware needed to install loader lights, hydraulic remote implement latch, and loader suspension system. When installing multiple options, only one wiring harness prep package is required.

Return-to-position (Rtp)

#
#

Repetition. Fatigue. No more.

 

The second generation of industry-exclusive Return-to-Position (RTP) with ESL will provide a practical solution for customers with daily, repetitive, material handling needs. Think about the commercial hay producer must constantly work the joystick to position the loader to stab the bale, carry the bale, and load the bale. RTP allows the operator to set different points for the loader to move to with the flick of the wrist, activating the detent in electronic joysticks. The loader can be taught that one movement means position for bale spear to stab the bale; another can be set to carry the bale.

 

With the second generation of RTP, operators can set application profiles. If the loader is used for bale and pallet work the operator can name one set of motions bale spear and the other pallet forks. The different applications have different set points associated with them. With the old system, the set points had to be entered each time for each application.

 

RTP Gen2 includes ESL. ESL utilizes the sensors placed in the boom for RTP control and allows the operator to turn self-leveling on or off. If the operator likes a mechanical self-leveling loader (MSL) for hay and pallet work, but would rather have the angles of a non self-leveling loader (NSL) when handling earth or barn cleaning, both are possible. Simply activate ESL through the RTP menu when self-leveling is required and then turn it back off when it is not.
