THEORY OF OPERATION - CONTINUED
HYDRAULIC SYSTEM - CONTINUED
Loader Hydraulic System.
Work tool height (lift) and tilt movements are controlled using a single-lever joystick loader control. A rotary
thumb wheel on top of the joystick controls auxiliary hydraulic flow to the work tool (forklift pallet forks or rotary
A single tilt cylinder centered over the loader arm controls tilt functions.
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 over 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 loader arm with hydraulically activated quick coupler allows for easy and quick connection and disconnection of
work tools without the need for operator to leave the cab.
The 966H Type I machine uses a Rock bucket with 4.5 yd3 (3.5 m3) capacity. The 966H Type II machine uses a GP
bucket with 5.0 yd3 (3.8 m3) capacity.
Buckets can be interchanged with forklift pallet forks and a rotary sweeper.
