New Section - FAQ's

Post by admin » Sun Mar 30, 2008 11:12 am

Just to advise that we've started a new section called FAQ's (in the "Main Menu" Section on the left hand side).

The intention is that this can be used as a more convenient repository for the answers to various questions that crop up on a regular basis.

Pride of place as FAQ No 1 goes to Powerrabbit's recent summary on DB loaders.

If anyone has any suggestions for other suitable FAQ's, pleas PM "admin".

This is a good feature team.

Scooby some of Errki's responses to hydraulic questions surely belong too.

Mitch,

Hey it's not only Scooby who does the Admin work you know, the FAQ is my baby.

PS BUT... as it happens Scooby suggested to me not 10 minutes ago that Errki's responses should be added to the FAQ's. Something about "great minds thinking alike" on opposite continents!!!

Sorry Alan :oops: Probably spelt your name wrong too. Also Ivan of Canada fame has some good ones.

Keep up the good work. By the way where is Chris Durrant?

Brilliant idea to create this as a seperate section and no doubt will in time be an invaluable reference piont for members to access, wheather it would further inhance this point would possably to sub-section it into catagories say for implements, tractors by model, engine q's and a's for easier finding, I think you know where I'm coming from. Further to the loaders, the later ones, QD, GD and HD, these letters represented Quick Detach, General Duty and lastly Heavy Duty. The early ones retained the single crowd ram for the fork and bucket and other front attachments and twin rams were introduced on the QD and HD loaders. The Quick Detach loaders were quite a bit different than the others in as much as the oil pipe couplings were re-positioned and connected by means of a bank of quick release unions to a block of pipes that formed part of the loader bracket frame and operation of the loader by cables running from the base of this unit operating the spool valves, through the front of the cab to the quadrant mounted on the side of the instrument binicle. Most of the other loaders used the same system as previous, oil pipes plumbed into the hydraulic system of the tractor and actuated through the hydraulic lever locked in the 'select' position by means of a latch and the oil feed diverted to the loader via the 3 way valve to the spool bank mounted beside the insrument panel. The system of external couplings was adopted as under HSE legislation it became illegal to have oil pipes exposed and running inside the cab. David Brown did supply a 'quick release' system for the attachment of bucket/fork etc, prior to this, a unit was made for these loaders by Slewtic.

Like the idea of subsections - it could all get confusing otherwise.

I think hydraulics is an oessential there - and Erkki does a very good job of explaning them.

I suspect another obvious one is oil types and capacities (a section in itself!!)

Well done on yet another good idea!

I think Duncan that it has been general experience in using the majority of these loaders over the years. I remember in the mid 80's that we made a dramatic step up from an 880 Implematic 4 cylinder with an AL2 trip loader to an 885Q with an LF7 double acting ram power loader, what a difference! Then came the advent of the big round-bale silage which the 885 would lift with no trouble but would groan a little under the weight and strain so bought a 1394 fitted with a QD90. Now, that was a loader.

Tim,

Hi. Thanks for the comments. Separate sub section will be used as the FAQ's develop. Re the ladditional loader info, I've PM'd you with an update - very much appreciate your once over before I update the online version.

Look in the 'alternative and replacement parts' post heading as this will cover such things over a period of time as they are added.
