13. Install loader frame on tractor using the 1/2 x 1-1/4”
capscrews, lockwashers and nuts provided. See Figure 9. During installation of
loader, install V-Belt around engine pulley, making sure the hydraulic pump
pulley and engine pulley are running true to each other for good belt alignment.
See Figure 10.
14. On the Landlord Tractor the clutch pedal must be cut off at the second
notch. This is necessary to eliminate interference between the R.H. loader frame
and the pedal. See Figure 11.

15. Fill reservoir
to proper level with specified oil. Start engine and operate loader to
remove air from cylinder. Check and refill hydraulic reservoir.
16. Check daily maintenance before operating loader.
Oil used should be non-foaming and have high oxidation resistance. The oil
should have a high viscosity index. Detergent type oils are satisfactory if they
Oil should meet API classification MM-MS.
For highest temperatures of 0° F. use SAE 5. For highest temperatures 0° F. to
70° F. use SAE 10. For temperatures above 70° F. use SAE 20. SAE 1OW30 may be
used for all temperature
NOTE: Use only clean oil and clean containers,
Dirt can destroy hydraulic system components.
1. Check hydraulic system for proper oil level.
2. Lubricate all pivot points with chassis lubricant (general purpose,
Before starting unit be sure that all maintenance procedures as listed in the
manual and in this loader manual have been followed.
Start tractor engine and allow hydraulic system to warm up before operating
heavy loads. Cold operation under heavy loads may seriously damage hydraulic
Always operate loader with proper amount of counterweight in
weight box (100 to 300 lbs.) When moving with a loaded bucket always carry
bucket low and operate tractor slowly. A loaded bucket, carried high, reduces
tractor stability. Good operators always carry loads low for added stability.
When lowering lift arms with a loaded bucket, do not stop the lowering abruptly.
This causes unnecessary high surge pressures in the hydraulic system and undue
strain on the tractor itself.
When lifting loads heavier than rated loader capacity, a relief valve in the
hydraulic pump will open protecting the hydraulic system. Excessive “By Passing”
of this relief valve will cause excessive
hydraulic system heat and damage to relief valve. Do not overload.
The loader is easily removed from the tractor to make unit available for other
To remove loader, remove the two capscrews (each side) that fasten the loader
main frame to sub-frame and slide forward. (Sec Step 13 for mounting).
