Features

Boom lockout for easy service

Hydraulic shut-off valve (closed position)Hydraulic shut-off valve (closed position)

A hydraulic shut-off valve is included with the R-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.

The R-Series Loaders come with a number of options to enhance an operator’s experience and to allow more productivity in the field. These options include lighting, hydraulic remote implement latch, loader suspension system, and industry-exclusive return-to-position (RTP) Gen2 technology with electronic self-leveling.

All of these options are powered using a common electrical harness. Features can be added or subtracted to get the job done right.

The 620R, 640R, 660R, and 680R 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.

Through 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.

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. 

 

All MSL R-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.


Automatic mast latch systemAutomatic mast latch system
#

R-Series Loaders are now even easier to remove and reinstall due to an automatic mast latch system. Simply exit the tractor once for removal and once for reinstall to reduce the amount of downtime associated with loader parking.

 

For a more detailed look at the steps, please refer to the operator’s manual.


To remove the loader, follow these simple steps:

  • Set the bucket flat on ground, release the hydraulic pressure, and exit the tractor.
  • Set the adjustable parking stands on the ground. 
  • Flip the lock handles located on either mast to unlock the loader from the frames.

  • Disengage the hydraulic couplers and return to the tractor seat.
  • Back away from the loader.

To reinstall the loader follow these simple steps:

  • Drive the tractor into the loader, resulting in mechanical connection (no more maneuvering the loader to fit into the frames).
  • Exit the tractor.
  • Fold up the parking stands.
  • Attach the hydraulic connection.
  • Enter the tractor and have full control of the loader.

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.

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.

The R-Series Loaders come equipped with a hydraulic shut-off valve to improve servicabiity. 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.

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.

The R-Series Loaders provide several options to enhance operator experience and productivity in the field. Individual options can be ordered to fit an operation’s unique set of needs. Some of the available loader options include:

  • Loader lights for enhanced visibility
  • Hydraulic remote implement latch improves uptime
  • Return-to-Position (RTP) Gen 2 with electronic self-leveling (ESL)
  • Loader suspension system for a smoother ride
Loader lights for enhanced visibility

To further enhance visibility, the 600R Loader has the option to include LED lights. With LED lights mounted onto each side of the loader boom, performing loader applications in variable operating conditions is made easier. Pairing the loader LED light option with an LED light package on the 6110M or 6120M Tractor will provide unmatched visibility to enhance operator experience during any task.

The hydraulic remote implement latch allows implements to be changed quickly and efficiently.  An operator can activate the device from the cab by simultaneously pressing the two buttons installed on the right-hand side of the operator’s station. Switching from one attachment to the next can now be accomplished quickly with limited movements of the loader and without leaving the operator’s seat.

The second generation of industry-exclusive RTP Gen 2 with ESL provides a practical solution for operators with daily, repetitive, material handling needs. RTP allows the operator to set different position points for the loader with the flick of the wrist, activating the detent in electronic joysticks. With the second generation of RTP, operators can set application profiles rather than entering position points each time an application is in use. RTP Gen 2 with ESL removes repetition and fatigue from loader applications.

Loader suspension system for a smoother ride

The loader suspension system improves operator comfort and loader efficiency during loader operation. This system is easily activated by the operator from the cab. When activated, the loader suspension system absorbs the shock providing a smoother ride in the cab as well as reducing material loss from the bucket.

Mounting frames are designed to evenly distribute forces during loader operation. Hardware is accessible to torque to the correct specifications during installation. The redesigned mounting frames ensure the automatic mast latch system can slide onto the frames to allow for mechanical connection between the loader and tractor.


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.

The hydraulic remote implement latch allows implements to be changed quickly and efficiently.  An operator can activate the device from the cab by simultaneously pressing the two buttons installed on the right-hand side of the operator’s station. Switching from one attachment to the next can now be accomplished quickly with limited movements of the loader and without leaving the operator’s seat.

 

The hydraulic remote implement latch is powered by a hydraulic accumulator, which collects and stores excess oil generated through the normal operation of the boom (curl, dump, lift, lower). To activate the device, the two switches installed in the right-hand side of the operator’s station are pressed simultaneously by the operator. This action releases the oil, and unlocks the implement.

 

This feature does not require a third-function hydraulic system.
