    H120 Loader Question

    Don't know if this has been asked before. If so, my apologies as I couldn't find an answer. I have a 1023e with the H120 loader. If the bucket is all the way rolled back, should I be able to lower the loader and have the down force lift the front wheels? My old 2305 would lift them quite a bit in this fashion but I have to unroll (open) the bucket on the 1023 to lift it. Even then, the front wheels barely come up. Thanks in advance.

    I believe this is the "floppy bucket syndrome". I have the same issue with my 1025R that they said they fixed, but did not replace the valve. I will be visiting my new dealer at some time in the future when I can spare the tractor, possibly this fall.

    With the bucket fully curled back, lowering the boom will not bring the front tires off the ground. Uncurling the bucket I can lift the front wheels well over a foot off the ground.

    Really? Interesting. Like I said, my 2305 would lift up easy with bucket curled back. Wonder why JD changed that. I get nowhere near a foot up uncurling but I'm assuming this is the same problem as others are having with bucket holding down while trying to back-drag????

    Floppy bucket makes is so that you have to wait a few seconds for the cylinder to refill with oil. It does not affect range of motion or power.

    You should be able to get pretty far up. My bucket can rotate so that the front edge is pointing straight down - even a bit more than that. I don't see why any other H120 would be different.

    So, I start my tractor and let it run a bit with bucket curled back, then uncurl and it should go up like you say?

    If your bucket starts out flat on the ground, yeah, it should raise the wheels. Mine does, easily.

    I just checked, I can get my front wheels about 18" off the ground. Having the tooth bar installed gains a couple inches. You should be able to get over a foot easily.

    To be clear, uncurling (dumping) is holding the lever to the right. Is that what you are doing?
