Hydraulic Hose Hookup
High Pressure Fluid Hazard:
Shut down tractor before making hydraulic connections.
Only trained personnel should work with system hydraulics.
Escaping fluid under pressure can have sufficient pressure to
penetrate the skin causing serious injury. If an accident
occurs, seek immediate medical assistance from a physician
familiar with this type of injury.
Use paper or cardboard, NOT BODY PARTS, to check for
leaks. Wear protective gloves and safety glasses or goggles
when working with hydraulic systems.
Refer to Figure 5
Great Plains hydraulic hoses have color coded handle
grips to help you hookup hoses to your tractor outlets.
Hoses that go to the same remote valve are marked with
the same color.
Current Style Color Coded Hose Handles
To distinguish hoses on the same hydraulic circuit, refer
to the symbol molded into the handle grip. Hoses with an
extended-cylinder symbol feed cylinder base ends.
Hoses with a retracted-cylinder symbol feeds cylinder
For hydraulic fan and drive motors, connect the hose
under the retracted cylinder symbol to the pressure side
of the motor. Connect the hose under the extended
cylinder symbol to the return side of the motor.
The fan motor further requires hookup of a third line,
which returns hydraulic fluid from the fan motor case.
