I bought some stuff at the auction yesterday and unloaded the trailer today! The loader worked. It was a little light on capacity, but I was able to rotate the bucket to get the bush hog up.
I wonder if there is a problem since I couldn't lift it with the arm. I could hear the high pressure bypass letting fluid through. I had the throttle all the way up. I imagine the bush hog weighs 250 lbs or so.
What do you guys think?

there is a presure relief on the loader valve you may want to adjust to get some add lifting power.

OK, I will look through the operator's manual today.

It will be under the Acorn Nut on the left side of the valve.

do you have a fast hitch brush hog on that tractor? 4' or 5'? I want to get one for mine or make one!
I have a loader on my 1955 100 and love it! I can pick up a 8' tandem disk with my loader just have to be careful and go slow.

OK, I went out and adjusted the pressure relief today after work. It is running really well now. I adjusted it so that it would just pick up the bush hog without bypassing at all. I don't have a 1500 PSI gauge. I also ran both rams against a stop and the hoses held, so the relief is still doing it's job.
Maybe I will be able to rig up a high pressure gauge from work and check the pressure. I'll have to look for one.

I may have a gauge for you!
