dump cylinder question

Recommended Posts

Ok it just hit me a few minutes ago. I think most of you have seen my 3012 project I got going on. Well I was going to use a single acting cylinder to dump the bucket. It is power dump and spring return. Well as I thought about it, with a full load of dirt or what ever, what is going to keep the bucket from dumping, the springs right? If I'm thinking right, this isn't going to work, right?

I belive it would just push agaist the closed valve.

a great action is to be able to control the curl of the bucket, a powered curl is very, very helpful..so i agree a double acting cylinder is what you need. edit: what i mean is..it is hard to get a full bucket of dirt with any machine..esp the smaller ones...so as you hit the pile a combination of lift and curl gets you a nice full bucket

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
