Ark 600 loader pump hose routing

Recommended Posts


Anyone have an Ark 600 loader on a Powermax that has original, pump hoses and fittings? And could take a picture of the pump showing hose entry? Mine has hose entry into the front of the pump and is missing the lower plate. I think the original pumps had hose entry on either side.

My 600 has the same hose arrangement and ports. Although I lost the pump last year and had to custom mount a different pump. Hasn't worked the same since. There was no plate under the tractor that protected the sheave. Which has created its on issues when I flip the compost pile :) Just something to think about.

My 600 also has a non original pump. It's still a Cessna but the hoses attach to the front of the unit so previous owner removed the plate to make room for at hand plumbing. It works but no real way to adjust the belt tension so we're gathering the bits to make it right. I was surprised to see pipe thread going into the unit and wondered if that was correct.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
