    Schaeffer STH-C fitting release

    Hello
    I have a H260 loader that blew a STH-c hydraulic fitting. I need the release tool to open the fitting. Does anyone know where I can buy one? I have tried the two screwdriver trick, but no go. I can make a release tool, I think if necessary, but the real thing would be better. Is it just the o-ring that goes in these fittings?

    Thanks

    You can just use two wrenches to unscrew the fitting a bit to release the pressure.

    What is a "Schaeffer STH-C" fitting? As familiar as I am with Hydraulics and the fitting/QD's used on the JD tractors, I've never heard of this and a Google search is not helping either.

    That looks like the release tool for push-to-connect fittings shown just to the right of it, those are not used on a H260 loader

    I found it on the Schafer site along with info on what they are calling STH-C couplers.

    Schäfer - STH-C

    Perhaps the OP can describe exactly which loader fitting blew out.

    I saw that too JG, but those are not used on a H260. JD uses (as I know you know) ISO 5675 "AG" style couplers.

    Agree... hopefully the OP will confirm exactly what he has, why he thinks it is a STH-C, and which couplers on his H260 seem to be having trouble.

    Yes that is the tool. The STH-C fittings are used on the H260 loader. They are behind the plastic cover, right side, used at the cross tube. Tractor is a 2015 5085M

    Thanks, I had no idea they where used there. We obviously assumed you where asking about the QD's to connect the loader to the tractor. I'm still not sure I see them on the drawing either.
