I am contemplating on building a loader for my garden tractor, and I am looking for some plans to follow? Are these ones decent? Thanks in advance.
never should a filter go on the pressure side of a hyd pump. well unless you bought lots of floor dry and cant use it fast enough. the filter goes in the return side always. ALWAYS.By the looks of it you have the filter on the intake side of the pump. Preferably it should be on the pressure side of the pump.
Yes, I stated that quite poorly. I meant to say that it should be on the return side to the reservoir.never should a filter go on the pressure side of a hyd pump. well unless you bought lots of floor dry and cant use it fast enough. the filter goes in the return side always. ALWAYS.
Sweet loader....!:eck21: raying: If you don't mind me asking how much were your material costs?I just recently finished my loader project. The plans are great and are full of very useful information. However, the plans are drawn to a Cub Cadet 149. In my case the uprights and arms were exactly as I needed them. The bucket I changed for personal preference. The main (2) things I found that needed to be modified were the frame (part that uprights bolts to) and how the hydraulic pump would be mounted. I redrew his prints using CAD and mocked it up on a drawing of my tractor (only major features). I used this information to design my own frame (much more robust than his design in my opinion). My main goal with the "redesign" was to have the ability to remove the entire loader assembly (minus frame) with very little effort. I think I have achieved my goals in that respect. Any other questions feel free to ask.
