Connect/disconnect the loader faster with the new Automatic Mast Latch
It takes four steps to disconnect the loader: lower the loader, open the parking stand, remove the hydraulics, and unlock the mast pin.
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.
More comfort and visibility with the R-Series Loaders
The design of the R-Series Loaders increases the visibility of the implement at no matter what lift height the loader is placed. Due to the compact design of the boom and the cylinders, the raised distance of the cylinders to fenders guarantees sufficient clearance. This allows an appropriate steering angle to maneouver the loader in tight spaces. The low position of the torque tube also allows good visibility and clearance for the tractor’s front lights, which provides an ideal lighting solution for night time use.
Increased visibility allows the operator to drive in a more comfortable and confident way. With 850 luminous flux per light , the light provides a powerful illumination to support working in dark conditions.
The loader suspension option further improves comfort when using the R-Series Loaders on uneven terrain. The gas accumulator is integrated and protected in the torque tube. The suspension is activated from the driver seat due to a button on the mechanical joystick (1) or a switch on the console with the electronic joystick. The loader suspension results in a smoother ride and less potential material loss.
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.
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.
