5 Family Tractors

 

Single-point hydraulic connection saves time

The H240, H260, and H310 Loaders can be ordered with a single-point hydraulic connection that also incorporates the connection point for any electrical needs. To disconnect the hydraulic connection between the loader and the tractor, it is necessary to relieve the hydraulic system oil pressure on the tractor.

Loader suspension system (LSS) to enhance the ride 

An enhancement to the loader is the suspension system. A great level of loader productivity is achieved with the LSS.

  • An accumulator charged with nitrogen and connected to the head-end lift cylinder hose through a T-fitting provides shock absorption
  • The cylinders move in and out to allow the boom to float 

Boom lockout for easy service 

A hydraulic shut-off valve is included with the H-Series Ag Loaders to ensure the loader does not lower suddenly. For example, this allows the boom to be locked out when someone is required to be located under the loader boom for service work on the tractor. It should not be used for extended periods of time unless an appropriate support stand is also utilized. 

False rod bucket cylinders improve productivity 

Fast bucket cycle times are important to dump the load from the bucket as quickly as possible, (quite often) in order to be as productive as possible, while completing loading operations. The bucket cylinder design can have a major impact on this cycle time, especially for the mechanical self-leveling loaders. 

Therefore, all MSL H-Series Loaders utilize false rod bucket cylinders. A false rod cylinder has a smaller displacement of oil requirement on the head end of the cylinder, which allows this cylinder to dump much faster than a normal cylinder.

Loader removal (parking) made easy

John Deere loaders are easily removed and reinstalled on tractors without tools. The parking system allows removing or attaching the loader to the tractor in minutes without the need for tools. 

To remove or park the loader, apply slight down pressure to the loader boom with the bucket dumped at approximately a 30-degree angle. With the tractor in park, lower the parking stands and place the mast pins in the open position.

Loader boom built for durability

The main structure of the loader, the boom is designed to maximize visibility for the operator to be able to complete their task easily and to provide sufficient strength to withstand years of rugged use. The boom is manufactured utilizing formed C-sections that are seam welded to create structurally sound tapered boom sections.

H-Series Loaders have easy access to loader service points

The H-Series Loaders feature end-of-pin greasing in all appropriate pin locations

Bucket-level indicator 

A bucket-level indicator is included in base equipment:

  • Located on the right-hand bucket cylinder
  • Aids the operator, along with the flat top of the bucket, in determining the bucket-level position
  • Does not require adjustment to indicate the level for various attachments

The bucket-level indicator has been redesigned to incorporate two tightly curled positions to signify the bucket and pallet fork level points. Now the rod can be seen at all positions and marked for any attachment-level position. This design eliminates freezing from occurring that causes failure of the indicator.

When the level indicator rod is even with the top of the lower coil cluster, the bucket is level. Attachments such as pallet forks are level when the top of the rod is aligned with the upper coil cluster.

Loader mast connection 

The mast of the loader provides the connection between the mounting frame on the tractor and the loader boom. The connecting points are located in the mast, allowing the loader to be removed or parked from the tractor. The lower fixed pin of the mast rests in the hook of the mounting frame, and the upper pin is secured in place through the mast and mounting frame.

Mechanical self-leveling (MSL) linkage keeps the load level

The H-Series Ag Loaders have a MSL loader that provides added lift capability as compared to a non-self-leveling (NSL) loader. This is due to the mechanical advantage the linkage provides. It also ensures the load remains at the same angle to the ground through the arc of travel from the ground to full lift height. The low-profile self-leveling linkage is sized to ensure long life and maximize operator visibility.

Loader configuration

The H240 Loader is available in both non-self-leveling (NSL) and mechanical self-leveling (MSL) to meet various needs. It is available with either two-function or three-function hydraulics.

500-style carrier

This carrier is built with cast nodular iron which provides strength and durability for loader operations. 

This carrier is designed for operations that have existing 500-style attachments and do not want to convert to the global carrier. 

This is only recommended for operations that have customer attachments that cannot be easily converted to the global style.

The John Deere 500 Carrier is not compatible with 6-Series Tractors.

Global carrier for quick attachment changes

The carrier features an attaching system for fast connection of attachments.

Skid steer-style carrier

The skid steer attachment carrier allows the use of skid steer-type attachments. One person can quickly change attachments without the use of tools by simply rolling the attachment back, lifting the levers, and then rolling the attachment forward and lowering to the ground.

Loader stationary fenders block debris thrown from tires 

Loader stationary fenders are highly recommended for those operating in conditions where the front axle will be in full oscillation and turn frequently or where tight turns are made while maneuvering through gates or obstacles that will catch tractor axle-mounted fenders. 

The loader stationary fenders still provide coverage for debris from the tire, but they do not protrude to become damaged in operation. The fenders can be removed to enable better access for servicing as well.

Mounting frames

Mounting frames are designed to evenly distribute forces during loader operation. Hardware is accessible to torque to the correct specifications.

Single-point hydraulic connection to save time

The H240, H260, H310, H340, and H360 Loaders feature a single-point hydraulic connection that also incorporates the connection point for any electrical needs as well. To disconnect the hydraulic connection between the loader and the tractor, it is necessary to relieve the hydraulic system oil pressure on the tractor.

Quick-couplers 

The H240, H260, H310, H340, and H360 Loaders feature two-function quick-couplers in base machine. To disconnect the hydraulic connection between the loader and the tractor, it is necessary to relieve the hydraulic system oil pressure on the tractor.

Hood guard for older 5 Series Tractors

The hood guard's basic function is to:

  • Help protect the tractor grille and hood from falling debris or stationary objects, such as a wagon or mixer, while loading
  • Allow for lighting at night
  • Can be used with or without the tractor front weight bracket but not with the actual front weights while using the loader
  • Cannot be used with a front hitch

It is highly recommended to purchase a front weight bracket when using a loader. The hood guard is designed to be slightly rearward of the front weight. This is so that the front weight is the first point of contact against lower stationary objects.

Hood guard for 5083E (Limited), 5093E (Limited), 5101E (Limited), 5603, 5225, 5325, 5425, 5525, 5625 2WD and MFWD Tractors; Non- Interim Tier 4 (IT4)

Grapple for material retention and improved efficiency 

All of the H-Series Loaders use the same five-tine pin-on grapple. The advantages of this grapple are:

  • The pin-on method puts the least amount of stress possible on the bucket.
  • The grapple has a wide stance, making it more difficult to twist.

Materials bucket

Materials buckets may be used for loading dirt, gravel, feed, and light materials as well as scraping, digging, and other general-purpose tasks

500-style bucket

This general-purpose bucket can be used in numerous applications.

High-volume buckets

The high-volume bucket is intended for use with lighter-density high-volume materials. The bucket capacity makes this an effective tool for handling snow, wood shavings, and other loose materials.
