Anyone run one of these on their farm? The boss has one and it always starts wpitting hoses out on me. The only thing I can think is it has to do with the constant down pressure not being right.

Clueless

I'll confess that I've never even heard of that one.

We have had one for 5 years and haven't had any issues with hoses blowing. We run it on several different 8000 series Deere. We always run the wings and star wheels with constants hydraulics with the the flow set at 2.5-3.0.

Where are you blowing the hoses at? We always rubber strap the hoses to the 3 Point to make sure they don't drag or get pinched when turning.

If most of you are like me, you have no idea what a Krause Excelerator is. This is what it looks like.

This type of implement falls into what is called "Vertical Tillage" tools. it has wavy blades spaced like a disc harrow however the angle of the blades can be changed from 0 to 5 degrees. They are designed to slice residue and leave a very smooth soil profile. They are also meant to operate at high speeds between 8-12 mph. To keep them in the ground and running level, active hydraulic flow is used to keep pressure against the hydraulic cylinders to keep the ground engaging components in the ground.

It pops them out of the remote on the tractor. Usually both for the wings and star wheels. Then when you shut the flow down to put them in and then turn the flow back in it pops them out plus the hoses for lifting the tool. At that point I'm in park not moving. He has the hoses tied up to the three point but I almost half wonder if they're catching the tongue on the tool and pulling out.

I thought is was the part in the car on “Back To The Future” that made time travel possible?

In my experience hoses popping out has to do with one of two things.
1. Cheap tips. Not all hydraulic tips are made to the same specification. When we have issues like what you are talking about that is the first thing we replace and the issue usually goes away.
2. Worn SCVs. On our older 50 or 55 series Deere we would have this happen we would rebuild the SCVs and that would seem to fix it.

It looks similar to a TurboTill or DMI which are popular in this area.

This would make sense, the bosses kid was trying to tell everyone that I was turning too sharp, not when I'm in the middle of a field I'm not.

I'll 2nd this.

Also, I believe that there is a pressure adjustment and a guage on the tool itself, I cant remember what it is supposed to be set to though.
But from what you are saying, I'd look at the hose ends and scvs.

I don't know if this will help you or not, but i snapped a picture of the tag thats by the adjustment valve on the tool itself.
Sorry it took so long, just dont go to the building this is stored in very often.
The one I was running does not have that sticker so that's good to know. The new/bigger one does. I found out after the fact that after my boss rebuilt the remotes on that tractor the draw bar came out going across the field with that tool. That would explain loose connections right there.
