Routing of the hydraulic lines in the loader

Routing of the hydraulic lines in the loader

The hydraulic systems of 5M iT4, 5R6MC/RC6M and 6R Tractors provide the power to activate the loader movements. The loader hydraulic lines are integrated within the boom arm which reduces the risk of damage and increases the loader visibility and maneuverability. 

 

John Deere provides a wide range of loader functions, starting with a minimum of two functions to lift and crowd the loader simultaneously. The third function configuration allows the operation of three independent functions simultaneously. With the diverter, the fourth function can be added for the operator’s utilization

On both the two-function and three-function loaders, the operator can find the control needed for the operation. A simple and economic solution is to connect the hydraulic hoses to the rear of the tractor, via the rear SCVs which are installed in base equipment. There is no need to install extra valves on the tractor. The operation of the rear SCVs is controlled either with the mechanical SCV (M-SCV) levers on the right-hand console, or via the electrohydraulic SCV (E-SCV) controls located on the right-hand console or on the CommandARMTM console on premium tractors.

Buttons on the mechanical joystick

Buttons on the mechanical joystick

The mechanical joystick is a more convenient way to operate the loader. The lever shape has been tested and approved to ensure easy control and access to all buttons, providing the highest ergonomic level. With a mechanical joystick, two or three independent functions can be operated at the same time. With a two-independent-functions control valve, for example, the driver can crowd the bucket while lifting the boom. When in combination with a diverter, the mechanical joystick provides the option for the operator to periodically divert control from the second function and operate a third function instead. The additional third independent function enables opening/closing the grapple which is often used for moving manure or loading silage. A lock position is possible due to a specific ring under the handle. This allows the operator to disable the valve control. The M-LCV is located below the tractor cab and enables additional control for front loader work, while maintaining the use of rear SCVs.

The sophisticated electronic joystick offers the operator an even more comfortable and accurate loader handling. The hydraulic flow as well as the speed of the loader functions can be set with the electronic joystick. The joystick is mounted on the armrest or on the CommandARM controls and manages up to five independent functions as well as diverter valve, return-to-position (RTP) and the GSS. The electronic joystick is not compatible with the GSS if the buttons on the joystick are already being used for the diverter valve application.
 
An additional button can be placed in the cab to activate the loader suspension. A safety flap allows the operator to disable the valve activation, preventing accidental activation.
