Adding Hydraulics to a Raider 14. Or PTO driven tiller on a 953/1054

Recommended Posts

Jim Turner

Has anyone added hydraulics to a Raider 14? I am liking the Raider 12 or 14 to use in the garden pulling a tiller or other implements but would really appreciate if I could add Hydraulics to it. but I don't really want to use the PTO to run a hydraulic pump. I could use a 953 i guess but I does not have not seen anyone mount a tiller on the back that does not require its own engine. I bet someome on here has figured out how to mount a rear tiller on their 953/1054 or hydraulics on their gear shift wheel horse.

I added a Hien Werner pump to my Raider 12. Unlike the pumps that they made for the :wh: tractors, my pump turns clock wise and had to be driven from the flywheel side.

@953 nut?  Is there a tiller setup for 953 / 1054’s?

I am looking for a tiller and linkage that can allow it to be run off the tractor PTO and not a separate motor.

I love it. that looks great.. I had a feeling the best way to add hydraulics would of been off that side of the engine. great job. and thanks for the responce.

 @Achto, I see you've connected the pump to a "standard" WH cylinder/rockshaft. How did you calculate the capacity/limits of that system to choose the pump?

I've often wondered if the Eaton 1100 charge pump could handle a second cylinder mounted somewhere else on the tractor (with separate controls, of course). Is there a way to determine this?

Also, do you (or does anyone) know what are the actual lift capacities of the WH systems? I know the later 520-H's system could lift the 60" deck and I understand that is 300+ lbs.

@Handy Don my guess is Dan whipped out his eyecrometer and said “yep, that aughtta work!” And tossed it on.

:text-yeahthat::ROTF:

Yep! It was more of a "fly by the seat of your pants".

 

The add on :wh: HY pumps ran the lift cylinder in about the same place as I have mine mounted. I figured if it work as a factory add on, that it should work the way I have it also. It lifts my moldboard plow, and so far every other implement that I have attached to it.

 

As far as lift limits - I have calculated that when I find something that the hydraulics won't pick up, then that item is too heavy.:thumbs2:

 

Truthfully, I think that the small cable running to the slot hitch would be more of a limitation than the Hien Werner setup.

You and @pullstart oughta form an act together :lol:

FWIW, my rough calc on the travel geometry of the cylinder throw (~4") and the lower lift arm at the lift pin (~6") and a 325 lbs. deck means the cylinder force must be at least 450 lbs. I read somewhere that the charge pump should put out 700 psi so this makes sense if the piston has a bit less than 1 sq inch of surface.

Our act gets better, when Uncle Jim’s in the wheelchair!

The sunstrand hydros can handle two lift cylinders as on a D series with 3pt.  Have operated both at once but with out any load on the midmount.  Just a bit slower.

I have done a similar conversion of adding dual hydraulics to a B80-8 now with a K321 from @richmondred. There is a build thread that I created last winter on this.

To my knowledge there wasn't a tiller for the 953/1054 but there is no reason a tiller from a later model couldn't be used with some slight modifications. Tillers are best mounted to a six speed/eight speed tractor and I'm not too sure a 953 in first gear would be slow enough for good tilling.

I know a guy with a low range in a 953 :handgestures-thumbupright:

Doesn't take a great deal of talent to do that swap,  :P    even an old cave man like me can do it..

I owned a 953 for less than one day.  How many speed trans?

They are all 3 speeds, unless a 6 or 8 speed gets swapped in.  I bought “Hot Wheels“ from Richard so I figured I could joke about that with him.:handgestures-thumbupright:

How odd!  First that I didn't know (or forgot...)

Second that the biggest bestest only had a 3 spd.

OK, I have a couple older WH rollers that I've never used but all my runners have Hi/Lo or hydro.

When did WH come out with the Hi/Lo?

The 953 / 1054 has a special transmission too.  Because of the hydraulics inside the frame, the bolt pattern is not your standard square 4 bolt.  It’s an odd shaped 4 bolt.  The differential is also beveled spider gears like an automotive diff and is known to be not quite as durable as the round pinion diff.  I THINK ‘64 started offering hi/low range.  Some 854’s were optioned with low range if I recall.
