powermax - can i run loader off tractor hyd. ?

Recommended Posts

hi - a question for the powermax experts - is it possible or wise to tapp into and run a front loader off the tractor hydraulic lines ? - will they have enough flow ? - will it harm the tractors hydraulic pump - i figure it will slow things if i was moving the tractor and loader at the same time - the reason im asking is my loader is run off a pump mounted under the front off the front pto - to use a mower or sickle i must remove the pump and mount to attach the pulley setup for a mower - its a real pain ! - what have others done for this problem ? thanks alot

The system does not have enough capacity or pressuse to run the loader. The best solution to your dilema is to buy more Powermax,s, 1 for loader, 1 for for mower, l for snowblower, & 1 for tiller, & maybe 1 or 2 more for odd jobs & spares. StanD

This is a pic of my rear pump. There is a stub pto shaft welded to a 1/2" keyed shaft with a lovejoy between that and the pump. mike [img]http://www.simpletractors.com/club2/uploaded/yardarm/DSC01044_2.jpg[/img]

      folowing  this from a link at the downloads.  I just rescued an AC 920 with the lambodini diesel. I can' t download  yet .  Where did you find the PDF copy you posted. . I would like to figure out how to adjust the injection pump. 
      I assume it's a bosche, correct

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
