Added hydro filter to Ark 600 loader

Recommended Posts

Have been wanting to do this since I got the loader. Finally ordered all the fittings and were delivered today. The position of the filter is snugged up out of the way under the control block mounting plate. I had to drill two 1/4" holes in the plate to mount the filter head. No leaks and good to go.

No affect on operation whatsoever. Same speed of lift and curl, no noise etc. Very happy with how it turned out. This unit was well used or should I say beat to he##! And with who knows what crud collected in the nooks and crannies of the hydro system even after draining and fresh fluid I feel much better about life of the pump, cylinders and controls. Hardest part was learning about and ordering the different hydro / hose fittings. ORB, JIC etc. Catalog from the Surplus Center came in very handy with explanation of the different fittings.
