Features

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, install the parking stands and place the mast pins in the open position.

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.

Concealed oil lines improve appearance and reduce damage

Over time, increased width in tractor hoods have caused issues with available space for running traditional oil lines of a loader along the boom, making them more susceptible to damage. 

To improve this situation, the oil lines have been routed through the boom arm and the torque tube, improving line protection and the appearance of the loader.

Single-point hydraulic connection saves time

The H340 and H360 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.

False rod bucket cylinders improve productivity mechanical self-leveling (MSL) only

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 MSL 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.

Return-to-position (RTP) option for 6R Tractors and H340, H360, and H380 Loaders offers increased productivity and repeatability

The RTP option for 6R Tractors and H340, H360, and H380 Loaders provides superior productivity and repeatability during material handling operations. An industry exclusive, RTP allows the operator to store two boom positions and two bucket positions through the use of sensors, the tractor’s CommandCenter™, and controller. To watch a video of a loader using RTP click here. 

With a simple activation of the momentary detents on the electronic joystick, the loader will return to the preset positions. A complete loading cycle now can be accomplished with four movements of the joystick thus significantly improving productivity. Operator stress is also significantly reduced as there is no need to constantly check the loader height and attachment angle during the operation.

Hood guard for 6605, 7200, 7210, 7400, 7410, 7405, and 7510 Tractors

The hood guard is highly recommended for all tractors. The basic function is to:

  • Help protect the tractor grille and hood from falling debris or stationary objects such as a wagon or mixer
  • 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 (this would overload the front axle)
  • 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 to allow the front weight bracket to be the first point of contact against lower stationary objects.

Hood guard for 7600, 7610, 7700, 7710, 7800, and 7810 Tractors

The basic function is to:

  • Help protect the tractor grille and hood from falling debris or stationary objects such as a wagon
    or mixer
  • 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 (this would overload the front axle)
  • Cannot be used with a front hitch

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

Hood guard for 7030, 7030 Premium, 6615, 6715, 7220, 7320, 7420, and 7520 Tractors

The heavy-duty hood guard is compatible with 7030, 7030 Premium, 6615, 6715, 7220, 7320, 7420, and 7520 Tractors. 

The basic function is to:

  • Help protect the tractor grille and hood from falling debris or stationary objects such as a wagon or mixer
  • Allow for lighting at night

Hood guard for 6M and 6R 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
  • Allow for lighting at night

Replaceable bucket cutting edge for added bucket durability 

For those who frequently scrape on concrete, a replaceable cutting edge will greatly extend the life of the bucket:

  • 1850-mm (73-in.) width replaceable cutting edge
  • 2150-mm (85-in.) width replaceable cutting edge
  • 2450-mm (96-in.) width replaceable cutting edge
  • 2750-mm (108-in.) width replaceable cutting edge

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.

High-performance operators will choose the five-tine grapple for its increased durability and load-carrying capacity. Advantages include:

  • The ability to handle two large round bales instead of one (where loader capacity allows).
  • Strong grapple arms allow the bucket capacity to be increased by almost twice the amount of normal bucket capacity in materials such as silage.

Digging teeth to enhance loader productivity 

Digging teeth can be added to the heavy-duty bucket for easier digging in hard ground or for breaking loose hard-packed materials such as manure or silage. Digging teeth are not compatible with replaceable cutting edges. 

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.

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.

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 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. The front and rear boom sections are then joined at the knee with the rear section overlapping the front section to create a stronger joint versus just butting them together and using an overlapping plate to connect the two sections. At the torque tube, the boom sections are connected.

Industrial-quality Hydro-Max™ 120 Series cylinders

  • Best in the industry - John Deere cylinders are known for being reliable and durable. Manufactured by John Deere Harvester Works Cylinder Division, ensuring the John Deere loaders have the most advanced cylinders available.
  • Precision robot welding - the cylinder end caps are tough enough to stand up to the lifting ability and high system pressures of the tractor-loader combination.
  • Hardened rod - the rod features chrome-over-nickel plating. This gives superior rust resistance and extends the rod's seal life. It also reduces the chance of nicks and dents in the rod itself.
  • 100 percent factory tested - all cylinders are tested and conform to rigid cleanliness standards.
  • Friction-welded rod assembly - This assembly provides superior weld strength, resulting in longer cylinder life.
  • Two-stage rod sealing system - this sealing system features a first-stage buffer seal that acts as a primary sealant.
  • Nonmetallic bearing rings - these rings preserve the surface finish of the barrel and rod, which reduces seal leakage.
  • Steel cap and rod ends - steel is used instead of cast; this avoids porosity leaks and maintains excellent size control for consistent installation.
  • Tight sealing - a four-piece piston seal provides positive sealing action. The backup ring limits seal extrusion and provides longer life to the seals.
  • Tightening of the piston retaining nut controlled by computer - piston joints are consistently tightened to the optimum level for increased durability.
  • Grapple cylinders - improved nut retention properties prevent the nut loosening from the end of the threaded rod.
  • Easy servicing - the cylinders are designed for convenient servicing to save time when repairs are required.

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 H260, H310, H340, and H360 Loaders are available in both non-self-leveling (NSL) and mechanical self-leveling (MSL) to meet various needs. They are available with either two-function or three-function hydraulics.

Global carrier for quick attachment changes

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

Electric remote carrier latching system saves time and energy 

The electric remote carrier latching system provides enhanced productivity and improved operator comfort when changing loader attachments. This time-saving feature allows an operator to unlatch and latch attachments for Global or Global Category 2 Carriers without leaving the operator's station. 

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.

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.

Hoses and parts

The loader hoses are connected to the mid-tractor selective control valves (SCVs)

Ballasting tractors

Proper ballast is very important. It significantly improves a tractor's stability, performance, and economy in most applications. The use of a tractor without proper ballast, especially for front loader work, is not recommended and should be avoided in order to save an operator time and money.
