C25 hydraulics

Post by Ajax123 » Sat Mar 03, 2018 5:26 pm

Hi all. I've all but given up on finding a front loader for by db d25. I am now investigating rear end loader instead. Unfortunately jndont know much about trafyirs yet having never had one beford this obe. Have seen a few rear loaders on eBay but need to know if there is a hydraulic take off anywhere on the back end. Can't find anything that looks like a lug to screw a hydraulic pipe into. Anyone know where I should be looking of if I'm wasting my time...

A two way valve has to be connected to the front of the three point linkage hydraulic cylinder. The valve location is on the front left side of the rear axle, behind the driver’s left leg.
This valve was an optional extra for the operation of auxiliary equipment.

Ok. Next question then. If it isn't there as in the valve, which does not seem to be installed, is a retro fit fairly straight forward....

The valve assembly can easily be fitted by someone with average mechanical skills.
Breakers or eBay is probably the best option.

My 25d is fitted with the valve, I will get a pic or 2 for you so you have half a idea what your looking for. Hopefully you find one.

While this is being discussed is there a easy/ correct place to plumb in a free flow return on a 25 for running a log splitter etc? I know it would be slow. I’m being curious and pondering rather than In need :lol:

The oil can be returned through the gearbox filler plug but prolonged use is not recommended because the gearbox bearings will be deprived of oil.
An independent PTO driven pump is a much better option.

Pro driven might well be a better option as it will only be for a loader unless her I doors will let me buy more things... Any suggestions on make of pto driven pump...

One option is to find a knackered hedge cutter, that gives you pump, oil tank, and spool block.

Those pics might be helpful. Only thing in the front if the rear axle is a round plate with 3 bolts in it. Theres One either side actually.

Behind the round plate on the left side there is a banjo bolt. The banjo bolt has to be removed and replaced with the valve assembly. The plate on the right hand side does not have anything behind it.

Aha... light begins to shine. Now... where can i get the valve assembly... is it a special assembly or can I get a modern off the shelf unit.

Sorry for all the seemingly dumb questions... I guess we all had to learn once though eh.

It is a special DB valve unit and I have never seen a substitute. They do occasionally appear on eBay. Try tractor breakers.
Do not become confused with the more modern DB three way valve unit that is not a suitable alternative.

Don't suppose you are able to point me towards any pics of what I'm looking for. I've got a guy local to me who has a load of db hydraulics valves available so need to have some clue what I'm looking for. Can't find a parts manual with anything useful in it.
