quick disconnects- NOT

Well, I can disconnect them easy enough, it's the re-connecting thats the hard part. My hydraulics for my loader are always difficult to re-connect after it sits a while. I put the deck all the way down, put the loader in the "float" position but I still have a tough time getting the thing to release enough pressure to re-connect the fittings. Any tips?

Life changes, so roll with it, not against it.

Just curious what model tractor and loader is it?

Are you taking off all the pressure before you disconnect the hoses?

I know some of the older loaders needed pressure to keep them parked but I believe allot of the new ones you can back out and dump all the pressure before you disconnect the hoses.

I hope this helps

One thing I have learned is that temperature and sunlight can affect the pressure in a system.

I have found if I unhook something on a 40 degree cloudy day and try to hook up to it on a sunny 90 degree day sometimes the system will build enough pressure to make it impossible to hook up.

The oil only needs to expand slightly to build up pressure.

I have seen hoes caps that unseat the tip with a hole drilled in them which helps prevent this.

Also some tractors just dont like pressure on the hose ends.

Also try shutting the tractor down, release pressure, then disconnect.

The cover and plug help keep the trash out of the connection and with lanyards will plug to gather so that is is a little easier to keep the parts clean.

Shutting down and exercising the control levers to bleed all pressure when disconnecting helps.

The set that I used still needed help sometimes - my solution was a rag around the plug ans bump the end a couple times to bleed pressure from the line. Sometimes the control levers need bumped to drop the pressure on the sockets.

I have allso found sockets so plugged that it took a pressure washer to clean all the dirt out.

One fellow made a lever to help plug up the connectors.

If things are that dirty, you shouldn't try to hook it up anyhow. Heat, dirt and water are the 3 main things to destroy a hyd. system.
