hydraulic help -off brand front loader

Recommended Posts

i have this big'ol bolens loader tractor ive been fixing up for awhile. it works pretty good but there is no down pressure option installed , so the loader just free falls when i push the lever in. i have to feather the handle when lowering otherwise it will come down super fast. is there a way i can adjust the valve body so it will fall slower ?. also there is no filter system in the hydraulics. should there be a filter ? what should i get ?, and where would i install one ?. the previouse owner put the loader on so ive been going thru and trying to fix up all the cobbled up welds and poor installation. the handle on the right is the up & down.

Proably need to get an adjustable flow control valve that will allow full flow for the loader to raise but restrict the fluid as the loader goes back down.Tractor supply might have them,sure the Surplus Center carries them as would a good Industrial Supply house.The valve is inline on the hydraulic line

ok cool, i didn't relize there was a inline control valve you could get. i thought there might have been a adjustment in the valve body. there is only one line going into the ram's. im guessing with the blank plug in the valve body i could add dual acting rams in the future ?.

Adding the extra line would give you down pressure,Take the plug out thats next to the other line and run a hose to the cylinders and you'll have down pressure.You'll need 3 lines and a "T" to go to both cylinders regular pipe T will work get the hydraulic lines at TSC also get a couple of the swivel fittings to make it easier to hook up
