Connect/disconnect the loader faster with the new Automatic Mast Latch
Only leave the cab once to disconnect the loader
It takes four steps to disconnect the loader: lower the loader, open the parking stand, remove the hydraulics, and unlock the mast pin.
To disconnect the loader, the bucket has to be flat on a stable ground (1). The operator has to leave the cab and lower the self-adjustable parking stands on both sides of the loader (2): the self-adjustable parking stands allow the driver to park the loader on irregular terrain and still keep a good position relative to the mounting frame, to attach the loader correctly later on. The parking stands can be set without tools.
After lowering the parking stands, the hydraulic couplers on the right-hand side of the loader have to be removed (3) and the loader must be unlocked from the tractor mounting frames (4). After these four steps, the operator is ready to move the tractor (5 and 6).
Fast connection of the loader to the tractor
Connecting the loader is fast and convenient thanks to the ramp design on the mounting frames and the automatic mast latch equipped with a floating device. Only drive the tractor to bring the mounting frames inside the mast until the latching indicators are in lock position. Then the driver can lift up the parking stands (1) and connect the couplers (2) for hydraulic and electric loader power to the tractor. Fast, intuitive and maintenance free design, the loader connection and disconnection brings the tractor ready for any tasks.
Fast and easy implement latching/unlatching
Changing the implements is a daily task for many front loader operators. Thanks to the patented automatic implement latch (AIL) the connection of various buckets, forks, or other implements can be done in less than 3 seconds. The dedicated treatment and material choice ensure the rod supports the heaviest applications, which provides a durable and lifetime solution. The AIL is a base feature of the Euro carrier, which is compatible with all Euro implements. It is also available with the Combi Euro MX carrier.
Disconnect the implement
To unlock the implement, the operator has to open the handle manually (1). Optionally, this is possible to do from the cab with the hydraulic implement unlatching (HIU). It requires minimal effort to unlock the implement, without the need of tools. The convenient position of the handle allows easy access for the operator. The operator needs to pull the handle and turn it clockwise. The handle will stay in the required position.
The next step is to remove the implement from the carrier (2): tilt the implement and lower the loader until the bucket touches the ground. The carrier rod is released from the implement hooks. The carrier handle moves to a standby position allowing fast latching later on.
Connect the implement
The Automatic Implement Latch (AIL) locks the implement as soon as the implement lug touches the trigger plate on the carrier (2). To achieve this, the top bar of the carrier has to be connected to the implement’s top hooks and after start rolling back the carrier. But there is no need to completely roll back the attachment. The implement is latched on both sides of the carrier (1, 2). The fast and easy locking performs regardless of loader height.
Automatic Implement Latch (AIL) in details:
Position of the carrier handle during the latching process
Position 1: Latch open – latch tube against carrier green plate
Position 2: Latch tube against AIL plate
Trigger waiting for implement lug
Position 3: Latch closed
More comfort and visibility with the R-Series Loaders
To make repetitive loader tasks easier and more accurate, John Deere now offers return-to- position (RTP) option which automatically returns the front loader to a preset position. The RTP is part of the ESL packages: the ESL standard package includes the non self-leveling (NSL) boom with RTP, whereas the ESL premium Package provides the mechanical self-leveling (MSL) boom equipped with RTP.
Unmatched robustness and power of R-Series Loaders
Due to the design and the loader kinematic, the R-Series Loaders feature outstanding power in regards to lift capacity and lift height. The power of the John Deere tractor is transferred to the loader via the hydraulic system.
The underslung leveling link of the mechanical self-leveling (MSL) loader is connected to the false rod cylinders which results in fast cycle times (dumping and rolling back). The geometry allows more rollback capacity which gives the operator stronger breakout forces to work with. The compact boom has lower pivoting points for easy access to grease points.
The R-Series Loaders show a great level of durability due to the high-quality material. The modular cast-iron components on the loader are the foundation of a durable machine. This results in tested, reliable longevity.
Easy loader removal using automatic mast latch
R-Series Loaders are even easier to attach and detach due to the automatic mast latch system. This feature provides efficiency to operations that require frequent loader parking. The automatic mast latch system is a mechanical lever that allows operators to remove or attach the loader with one trip out of the cab. The ease and convenience provided by the automatic mast latch system provides improvement to operation uptime.
