THEORY OF OPERATION - CONTINUED
HYDRAULIC SYSTEM - CONTINUED
Loader Hydraulic System.
a. Work tool height and tilt as well as auxiliary hydraulic operation are hydraulically powered and controlled by a loader
control joystick and an auxiliary hydraulic control lever in the cab.
b. A single tilt cylinder centered over the loader arm controls tilt functions.
c. Two lift cylinders, mounted between the front frame section and the loader arm, raise and lower the loader arm.
RIDE CONTROL SYSTEM
The ride control system provides the means for absorbing forces from the lift cylinders while the machine is traveling.
This system minimizes machine pitching when traveling rough terrain.
The main components of the ride control system are accumulator, ride control valve, lift cylinders, and ride control
switch on the operator console inside the cab.
The operator can choose three modes of ride control: OFF, MANUAL, or AUTOMATIC.
A Versalink loader arm with hydraulically activated quick coupler allows for easy and quick connection and disconnec-
tion of work tools without the need for operator to leave cab.
The loader uses an MP bucket with 2.5 yd3 (1.9 m3) capacity. Hydraulically actuated clamshell jaws increase the versa-
tility of the bucket.
Forklift pallet forks may also be used, instead of the MP bucket.
