Action pics with loader!

Recommended Posts

Some new pics with my father doing some work for me with the D-180.

Must say that it’s a true work horse and it did a great job! It moved a lot of heavy road material this afternoon and actually even ripped up the asphalt with the new tires at some places! =)

27 x 8.5 -15†Skid Steer tires at rear on 7x15†rims and 4.00 x 10†at front on 3.5x10†rims and homefabbed hubs. I have now also connected the hydraulic pump under the tractor to the pto with a driveshaft. Works really well and I can still also use the pto at the front!

Next project on this tractor is to fix a foot-hydro control. That would be a great thing together with the loader!

Interesting bucket design...

 

Seems to me you would really need to run high hydraulic pressures or you wouldn't be able to dump a fully loaded bucket. I would think there wouldn't be enough leverage

How much do you mean with high hydraulic pressure?I understand your reflection hodge71, but that has not been any problem at all and it handles a full bucket very well. 

Dont know what pressure i have but the loader needs 120 bar (1740 psi) to fully work and handle 500kg / 1100 Lb.

      Geez, it seems like it's been forever since I've been on here. Hope you guys didn't miss me too much. Based on the fact that I had no notifications waiting, I'm guessing not. Lol!
       
      Anyway, I'm thinking of putting an electric clutch on my D-180. Some of you might remember that I replaced the original Kohler K series 18 hp twin with a 25 HP Kohler Command when I broke a rod in the original engine and could not find any replacements. With the modifications I had to make on the clutch linkage, and the fact that I've also outfitted this machine with a 60" deck, the existing manual clutch just can't generate the pressure against the plate that I'd like. The clutch surfaces are fine. Does anyone have any experience with an electric clutch on your D series? I want to maintain the 2 pulley system to drive the rear PTO. What do I need to know? How the heck to those things enen attach to the engine? They all seem like they're earmarked for a specific machine, but are they somewhat universal in design? Some photos would help. I've got a 1 1/8" shaft to work with. Plenty of length to make any forward/aft adjustments.

      Fast question ...
       
      Per the IPL for the 6-1141 and 6-1131 54" & 56" blades - how is everyone pinning the rear blade lock arms so they can't unlock the blade ? I've ran into problems with this thing before wanting to unlock itself and drop the blade half off the tractor. It seems when back dragging rough pavement, especially if I back into a snow bank the thing is moving those locks out of position and allowing the frame to drop off. The only reason it stays at least somewhat under the D is the lift arm , but getting it back into position is no fun due to the weight of this thing and especially out in the snow/cold weather. Last time I had to drag the thing back to a clear area so I could wrestle it back into position, lift the frame and lock it again. I did wire them shut for now, but don't trust it and I use it to back drag quite a bit on rough areas I don't want to ram the cutting edge against and risk damaging the rear axle differential or anything else. Mine has been rebuilt with a new cutting edge of 1055HC and the frame is highly beefed up - most of it is now boxed in and the thing has gained nearly 50lbs of steel. It cuts great, almost too good but that random dropping it off is starting to irritate me - need some ideas here...
       
      The smaller 42" and other frames lock from the other direction - so to speak. The brackets are also drilled to accept large hair pin cotters to keep those locks in place - I see no way the bigger blade frame is designed for that, unless I'm missing something ?

      Hello
       
      I have a D 200 and my sons have been cutting the lawn this summer and nerver check th oil and the seized the motor. I freed the motor up and it runs fine until there is a load. I checked the Compression  and I have one dead hole. ;-(   it broke my heart. I have a Mower, tiller, and snow thrower.
       
      Any Advise? Should I buy a motor? Or rebuild or scrap?? I liked the machine. But I dont want to dump a ton of money into it if it is questionable. I am not sure if it is a Kohler or Onan??  Any thoughts
       
      Thank you

      A long long time ago there was a thread here about which wheel horse would be on your "wanted hit list".
      One of them was a GT-14 which thanks to Neil, one came my way.. A great machine which has now moved to pastures new..
      The other I'm sure you can guess from the title was a D-200
       
      Nigel bought this machine from Harry with the thought of changing the engine (which had a knock according to the bloke Harry bought it from), to something a bit different..
      Then Nigel made the mistake of saying something along the lines of "I expect you will end up owning the D eventually".    Which got me thinking
       
      A bit of a play with the wiring  (The PTO switch had been badly by-passed) and the engine had a spark, and a temporary gravity fed fuel tank sorted out the fuel side of things..
      Much to Nigel and my surprise the engine fired right up and sounded good with sign of any knocking sounds!
      The trans is a bit noisy but that may sort it's self out with a bit of use as the Big D hadn't been used in a very long time..
       
      A few photo's for you..
       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       
       
      And of course a video.... I hope to get an engine running and driving vid edited today, but for now here's an intro vid..
       
       
       
      The D gets better each time she is driven. The engine always starts first time every time
      Speaking of the engine, a new vacum fuel pump was fitted so I could get rid of the "tank on a plank" that was clamped on the front and use the D's original tank..
      The engine was also missing a cover, so I quickly folded one up from a bit of sheet steel.. Not pretty but does the job.
       

       
       
      The D's first official duty, carting some steel panels up from the scrap pile
