    Artillian Diverter Kit Installation Video (Deere 1-Series)

    I've put together a video of our 1025R Diverter Installation (for our new Artillian Grapple). (Special Thanks to Artillian/Curtis!)

    This is a long video, as the installation took awhile.

    There are two major sections:

    1 - Hydraulic Installation

    2 - Electrical Controller Installation

    We ended up doing the electrical installation two different ways. The first approach became necessary because of an immediate need to use the grapple...then, later in the video, we finished the installation wiring the diverter directly to the fuse box.

    We would like to thank GTT user DanaMorgan for this post: http://www.greentractortalk.com/foru...tml#post130906 (Their very first post to the GTT forum, BTW).

    We used that NAPA part to make the fuse box connection. It was not a perfect fit, as it did not lock cleanly into the fuse block, but I was able to make it work.

    Sit back and enjoy, and don't make too much fun of me for saying the bolt head was "10 centimeters". ...instead of 10mm! Oh well...hard to keep everything clear inside my head :-)

    Very nice video. When I installed mine I took The loader off. Made it easier running the hoses and mounting the Diverter

    Your video went a long ways toward explaining what a diverter does. Since I bought the 1025R I've learned much but there is a ton more I need to know.

    Reading here has shortened the learning curve.

    Thanks.

    Yes, GTT is a tremendous resource for all things John Deere, especially compact tractors.

    Very good video Tim but there is no way I could do it. I wish Deere offered a third function valve from the factory as Kubota and possibly others do. I have serious doubts about turning a “tech” loose to do the install, not to mention the cost of having the dealer do it.

    I guess I failed. It really wasn't that hard. If you use the 12v plug version, the electric would be simple.

    Just step by step. You heard Katriel reading the instructions to me.

    I'm sure you could do it!

    You most certainly did not fail it was an excellent video as all of yours are! I appreciate your vote of confidence.

    After watching Tim's video, and reading the directions, I finally dove in on installing my diverter today. I took some pictures to show the differences with the 120R loader and thought I would add them to this thread. It was pretty easy to follow and do. Once I was done with the hydraulics, I short cut the electric in order to get to work, so I need to circle back and do that properly another time.

    I also learned a lesson about carrying the tools needed to tighten fittings in the field. Although everything was fine in the garage, when I started to put load on the grapple it revealed that I didn't tighten one of the grapple connections very well. No problem, easy fix. I need to get around to putting together my toolkit for the field.

    Anyway, here's some pictures.



    First, the grapple modules installed. The jury is still out on the modular system. I might end up just wanting separate implements when it comes to forks and grapple. However, after using the grapple, it's awesome and I may just live with having to move these piece around. Time will tell.





    First difference is the hard line connections. They're now these fixed right angle connections. I want to say they were 13/16".




    And they are o-ring type fittings.







    Then I was worried about the manifold interfering with the heavy hitch, but it didn't since it had to be offset from center so that the hoses reached the diverter.





    For routing up the boom, and my first flaw, I should have moved the manifold closer to the boom and put the hoses behind the factory hose. I will eventually do that. When curling and dumping, the factory hose causes the grapple hoses to deflect about 1/2inch. Probably not a big deal, but I ended up removing that zip tie in order to give them more room to move until I reroute.




    Fits nicely through factory guide.




    Then up and over the factory hoses. I removed the protective sleaving in order to make the hoses easier to work with and properly route. I reinstalled it later. I first stacked the curl and dump hoses on top of each other (the hoses on the left of the 4 hose gang), and connected them, then ran the other hose next to them.




    Then I made up all of my connections.




    The new dump and curl hoses used 7/8" fittings.





    Then I bastardized the electric so I could get to work. Everything worked great!

    Question.

    Ever since I installed the diverter, I have found that when removing the loader that the two hoses that go from the tractor to the diverter pull very tight to where not only are they difficult to get off, bit impossible to get back on without first seating the loader with the raise and lower.

    I emailed Artillian and they suggested that I'm lifting the loader too high when taking it off, but here's a picture ofe lifting it just until the latch latches, per the manual.

    Any ideas? Do I have something installed wrong?

    Thanks!
