    Artillian fork system with plow adapter question

    Looking to pull the trigger soon to buy a Artillian fork set-up for my 1025r and then buy the plow adapter kit and run a plow in this fashion. The issue of not being able to change over from the standard Deere quick-hitch plow set-up and flip over to the FEL without having to take 10-15 mins to take the mount off to clear the stand seems to be a problem Deere needs to solve if they want more sales. Alot easier to just pull 2 lynch pins and 2 hoses to swap from plow to bucket.

    When I get the plow mount I plan to get the hose extensions versus the diverter valve set-up which will cost more money. Anyone want to point out anything I am missing and should go to the diverter valve. If I set the curl at the right approach angle to plow after mounting the plow before changing over to the hydraulic angle hoses I should be good and not miss the curl option.

    Hummmmmm.......

    Not the hydraulics expert here but I don' think it is a good idea to put a load on the curl cylinders without pressure connected to them.

    KennyD or Diesel or one of our many other experts will be along shortly and then we will both know the answer to this question.

    The main issue as I see it is that the cylinder can drift some from the initial setting when you disconnect the hoses, and sometimes it will he hard to disconnect/reconnect then because of the pressure built up in them. If you have any intentions of getting the grapple when it comes out than just get the diverter now, if you have no need for the grapple then try the extension hose for now.

    I'm betting both lift and curl cylinders on the loader will drift fairly quickly. That would be extremely frustrating to stop and reconnect the loader hoses, reposition, then reconnect the plow. I would get the diverter and not look back.

    96PSD,

    Taking a shortcut is seldom a satisfactory resolution to any issue. In fact, I've gone further than simply installing a diverter valve. I've installed a 3rd SCV for the rear of my 1026. If I buy a grapple someday, I'll hook up the hydraulics for it to that 3rd SCV. I've got a fork set on order from Artillian so I'll have a new toy ... I mean implement to use shortly. I also use that 3rd SCV for the hydraulics on my tow-behind aerator.

    I run the same setup. You curl back all the way to the stops when attaching the plow adapter. There is a bracket that keeps the plow at the correct angle. I will get the diverter valve as soon as the wife lets me.

    Short cuts hardly ever work out. I know, I've done it a lot in the past. Usually because of money and then I spend the extra money anyway plus throw away the money I spent doing the short cut. Short cuts are designed to be appealing/attractive and normally always cost more in the end.

    Better?
