Features

Loader Technology package prep

Time and cost savings with Loader Technology package preparation

The loader technology package prep provides the installed harness and controller to further install a hardware bundle that has four key features to make material handling easier and more efficient. The package is only for mid-model year 2022 and newer 6R 110 to 6R 250 Tractors when equipped with the electric joystick and mid- valves.

Technology package hardware unlocks the following loader features when DWS option code is ordered with Loader Technology package prep.

Optional Loader Technology hardware if equipped (code 9661)

  • Dynamic Weighing System (DWS)
  • Level to Horizon (LTH)
  • Return to Position (RTP)
  • Electronic self-leveling (ESL)

Return to Position (RTP), if equipped (code 9661)

This feature moves the loader boom and bucket automatically to easily preset positions. The operator can save boom upper height, lower height  and 2 different bucket angles for both settings A and B. With a push, pull, left or right motion of the joystick just past a built in joystick detent to activate, then the loader automatically returns the boom and bucket to the preset position. This feature works great for an upper height to clear wagon and a lower bucket angle set for dumping then  returning bucket back to zero, then lower loader back to a transport position. Re-zeroing implements is easy with a zero soft button on the RTP run page.

RTP can easily be switched off if manual operation is preferred.

Level to Horizon (LTH), if equipped (code 9661)
#

This feature levels the attachment parallel to the horizon, while conventional loader leveling systems maintain the same angle as the tractor. This means that when operating in hilly conditions, waterways, or in and out of buildings on the farm, the pallet fork, bucket, or other attachment is actively moved into a horizontal position. If this behavior is not desired by the operator, it can be turned off in the tractor display. The attachment is then leveled to the tractor if equipped with a leveling feature such as mechanical self-leveling (MSL). LTH is compatible with both self-leveling and non-self-leveling loaders

Dynamic Weighing System (DWS), if equipped (code 9661)

The DWS feature displays the current weight loaded on the attachment, such as a bucket, spear, or forks. The tractor does not need to stop for weighing, it’s constantly providing a weight reading allowing the operator to fill bucket to the required target weight without interrupting for a separate weighing cycle. Record weight with count as needed with a push of the joystick button.

It also allows the operator to create and save single material groups such as bales, feed, or fertilizer. Also, create and save a material group of up to 6 different materials. Display tracks single material group with section from material dropdown with record of count, minimum, maximum and average weight. The weighing system even registers multiple units. For example, in single material group you can count bales by 1, 2, or 3 with every loading cycle.

Operating the material group from the DWS run page by the selection of different stored material groups. Selecting the material is as easy as selecting one of listed materials and record the weight as you are loading. Weight will be recorded and count down to zero then a green checkmark will appear next to the material signifying that it has been completed, repeat until all materials have been added. A bar diagram and displayed values clearly show how much weight of the current component is still needed to achieve its target weight.

Loader camera option when ordered with Loader Technology package (code 9662)

The loader camera provides visibility to the loader carrier and surroundings. The hooks of the carrier are visible to facilitate connecting attachments. When working with pallet forks, the fork tips are visible to assist picking up pallets with ease. The video image is shown in the built-in display of the 6R Tractor.

DWS is a must for windy feed yards because you can weigh your lightweight commodities in the shed without blowing feed across your yard when feathering over feed wagon getting to a target weight.

Electronic self-leveling (ESL), if equipped (code 9661)

ESL maintains bucket positioning in any range of the boom. It can be easily activated and deactivated from the run pages. Toggling between ESL and LTH is as simple as selecting which leveling operation is needed through the run page on display. ESL is compatible with both self-leveling and non-self-leveling loaders. ESL is compatible with both self-leveling and non-self-leveling loaders.

Benefits
  • Faster and easier loading of goods with RTP
  • No manual controlling of heights and angles to avoid trailers, sheds, etc.
  • Weighing on the go without the time-consuming needing to stop and perform a weighing cycle
  • No time lost returning excessive load from mixer wagons
  • No effort to rewrite the target weight of all individual components when changing silage pits with a different nutrition value or varying herd size
  • No need to purchase a feeder wagon scale
  • Fast filling of target weight in the bucket without interrupting to verify the current weight
  • Less risk of loss of expensive commodities caused by the wind blowing over wagon
    Automatic bale counter versus paper notes in the cab
  • Can weigh liquids and even partial loads on pallets or in containers and buckets
  • Avoid spilling goods or transport multiple bales without dropping them with the LTH feature

The camera is factory-installed in the loader factory; the wiring harness is protected inside the boom. The camera angle can be adjusted if needed. It is possible that a different position of the camera is desired, such as showing the contents of a bucket or the side of a snow blade. For such unique desires, spare cable length is available to enable customized camera positions.

 

Benefits

  • Fast connection of attachments
  • No damage to pallets and goods loaded on forks and spears
  • Possibility for customized camera position

Single-point hydraulic connection to save time

The R-Series Loaders feature a single-point hydraulic connection that saves the operator time when attaching or detaching the loader. This feature also incorporates the connection point for any electrical needs as well as the hydraulic lockout valve. With all hydraulic and electrical connections in one location, installation is quickly completed with the pull of a handle.

 

NOTE: Before disconnecting the hydraulic connection between the loader and the tractor, it is necessary to release the hydraulic pressure.

The R-Series Loaders are designed to route the oil lines and hydraulic lines through the boom arm and the torque tube. This internal routing ensures better protection of the lines from external damage and improves the overall appearance of the loader.

Easy loader removal and installation using Mast Latching System

New Mast Latch System for the 5R and 6R series loaders makes it easy to attach and detach the loader from the tractor. The system provides easy visual references from both the inside and outside of tractor cab. This feature provides a large pin that is inserted through the mast just above the latching mechanism, providing a quick visual reference from the operator station and during walk around inspections. This pin is attached to the loader with a cable with a convenient storage bracket when the loader is removed. When the loader is attached, the pin provides a sliding handle to assist with alignment and keeping the loader securely attached.

The inside of the loader mast has a new sticker that is easy to see from cab. This offers an indicator for when latched, to rest over the checkmark and provides a lock symbol just above the pin protrusion. The Mast Latch System is a pin and mechanical lever that allows operators to remove or attach the loader with one trip out of the cab.

Easy service with boom lockout

Hydraulic shut-off valve on R-Series Loader Hydraulic shut-off valve on R-Series Loader

The R-Series Loaders come equipped with a hydraulic shut-off valve to improve serviceability. When conducting brief service to the loader, close the hydraulic shut-off valve to ensure the loader does not move while operating under the equipment. This feature promotes a safe way to conduct brief maintenance without having to use support stands or removing the loader completely.

Faster cycle time for mechanical self-leveling (MSL) loaders using false rod cylinders -

The MSL R-Series Loaders utilize a false rod cylinder to improve bucket performance. This bucket cylinder is designed with a smaller displacement of oil required on the head end of the cylinder, which allows the cylinder to function more quickly, decreasing operation cycle time. With the false rod cylinder design, loader applications can work more quickly and efficiently.
