Oil lines routed through the boom armOil lines routed through the boom arm
Oil lines routed through the torque tubeOil 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.

Parking standsParking stands
#

John Deere loaders are easily removed and reinstalled on tractors without tools. The parking system allows removing or attaching the loader to the tractor in minutes without the need for tools.

 

To remove or park the loader, apply slight down pressure to the loader boom with the bucket dumped at approximately a 30-degree angle. With the tractor in park, lower the parking stands and place the mast pins in the open position.

Utilizing the boom circuit with the tractor in neutral, rotate the mast forward until the mast has rotated past the pin location on the mounting frame by extending the lift cylinder. Now using the bucket circuit, roll back the bucket until the mast is removed from the pocket and will clear the tires.

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 cylinderFalse 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.

An enhancement to the loader is the suspension system. A great level of loader productivity is achieved with the LSS.

  • An accumulator charged with nitrogen and connected to the head-end lift cylinder hose through a T-fitting provides shock absorption
  • The cylinders move in and out to allow the boom to float 

Performance

  • Bales can be transported more efficiently from one end of the field to the other over frozen, hard-packed, or rutted terrain.

NOTE: Check bale-handling capability of tractor before use.

  • Pallets can be moved easily without sustaining cargo damage
  • Pallets of seed or fertilizer can be carried across a yard without a bag spilling and creating a costly mess
  • A properly-ballasted tractor with LSS has increased stability, creating a smoother ride for the operator

Cost of ownership

  • Extended life of loader pins and bushings
  • Less stress on tractor axle

Reasons for turning LSS off include:

  • Digging applications - with LSS on, the cylinders retract slightly, losing lifting power
  • Holding a grade when blading - with LSS on, it is difficult to hold a constant grade
  • Precise pallet and bale handling - with LSS on, the load moves up and down slightly while being positioned
  • Parking a loader - with LSS on, when down pressure is applied, the lift cylinders retract slightly, making it more difficult to park

The switch is conveniently located in the operator station to avoid having to exit the tractor seat to manually move the handle on the LSS.

LSS can also be ordered with a manual shutoff. Depending on the tractor/loader model, the accumulator is located in different places. On the 440R, the accumulator is mounted outside the bottom of the mounting frame. On the 5 Series Tractors, the accumulator is mounted near the inside of the rear right wheel. On 6 Series tractors and larger, it is mounted in between the hydraulic connection and the mounting frame.

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
  • 2750-mm (108-in.) width replaceable cutting edge

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.

Loader stationary fenders are highly recommended for those operating in conditions where the front axle will be in full oscillation and turn frequently or where tight turns are made while maneuvering through gates or obstacles that will catch tractor axle-mounted fenders.

 

The loader stationary fenders still provide coverage for debris from the tire, but they do not protrude to become damaged in operation. The fenders can be removed to enable better access for servicing as well.

Grapples

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

All compatible John Deere 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.

Hoses will be installed in the boom arm and just the couplers will need to be assembled along with the third-function bracket and oil line. To disconnect the hydraulic connection between the loader and the tractor, it is necessary to relieve the hydraulic system oil pressure on the tractor.

Hood Guards

The hood guard's basic function is to:

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

 

Compatibility:

  • Can be used with or without the tractor front weight bracket but not with the actual front weights while using the loader (this would over load 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 bracket. This is so that the front weight bracket is the first point of contact against lower stationary objects.

The basic function of a hood guard 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)
  • For the 5M Series Tractors, the bottom bar must be removed for usage with front hitch for storage position of the center link.

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 bracket. This is so the front weight bracket is the first point of contact against lower stationary objects.

If a front weight bracket 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

Hood guard on 6R TractorHood guard on 6R Tractor
Hood guard for 6R folded downHood guard for 6R folded down

 The hood guard's 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


Compatibility:

  • 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 bracket. This is so the front weight bracket is the first point of contact against lower stationary objects. The height of the hood guard allows better protection for the top of the hood and allows operators to see the top of the hood guard.

Hood guard for 5M Series TractorsHood guard for 5M Series Tractors
Hood guard for 6D Series TractorsHood guard for 6D Series Tractors

The heavy-duty hood guard is compatible with 5M (5065M, 5075M, 5085M, 5095M, 5100M, 5105M, and 5115M), 6D – model year 2012 and prior (6100D, 6115D, 6130D, and 6140D), 6D – Interim Tier 4 (IT4) model years 2013 -2015 (6105D, 6115D, 6130D, and 6140D), and 6E Final Tier 4 (FT4) model year 2016 (6105E, 6120E, and 6135E) Tractors.



The basic function of a hood guard 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)
  • For the 5M Series Tractors, the bottom bar must be removed for usage with front hitch for storage position of the center link.

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 bracket. This is so the front weight bracket is the first point of contact against lower stationary objects.

If a front weight bracket 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

The loader hoses are connected to the mid-tractor selective control valves (SCVs).
