Front Loader

Post by starider » Tue Nov 05, 2019 11:42 pm

Hi, I am trying to identify the front loader fitted to my 1412. Before I attempt to add pictures perhaps a description would help. It looks very similar to an LQ9 but has a fixed support tower on each side with a link bar joining them across the bonnet.The loader arms have a smaller "tower" each side which slots into the fixed "tower" and is held in place each side with a large spring loaded pin. I assume it is a form of quicky loader, but there must be some sort of support brackets to allow easy removal i.e. to support the loader,dis-connect the rams and pipes,take out the pins,prise out the spring loaded locking pins and reverse the tractor away[my best guess]. I have removed the loader using my mini digger and sling as support, but wasn't particularly safe or rigid enough.I have re-painted the loader and at present can only try to re-fit using the digger.
Any advice will be greatly appreciated,plus identifying the loader.many thanks...........starider :?:

A modern loader is not a quick attachable one if you have to disconnect cylinders and pipes. The hydraulics are connected between the loader and the loader operating valve by means of quick couplers, if the loader is a quick attachable loader. Some old loaders used to be called quick attachable and this involved disconnecting the boom cylinders at the front. Some old David Brown loaders had a system where the boom cylinders was turned up vertical and secured with pins in this position. These loaders had mechanical bucket control. Some loaders have stand legs that can be dropped down when the loader is detached. Others have a separate stand that has to be placed under the loader boons. One type of legs can be seen in the following video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oAggKGoBAeQ These explanations shows that it is completely impossible, based on the information given, to know what loader is in question. Even pictures can make it difficult to answer the questions, as loaders have been manufactured by numerous manufacturers and in hundreds of models. In addition loaders have been altered in many ways by the owners.

Hi, I have used modern tractors with the latest front loaders.The one fitted to my 1412 is probably 40 years old as is the tractor and probably at the time it was supplied, it was considered fairly easily detatchable. As you say there were lots of different loaders available, so it may be difficult to find which model I shave. If the weather is suitable in the next few days I'll re-fit and take photographs........................starider
