I would like to put check valves on the 320R loader so it doesn't settle at all when I have my 4' x 8' scaffolding on the pallet forks. Kits from JD run $750 for all 4 cylinders so I was wondering if I could put ball valves inline and close them.

If so where would they be available from?

Maybe just me - but I would never rely on hydraulics for something like that. Even with ball valves a valve can fail - or a cylinder seal - or hydraulic line.....


Physically blocking the loader up somehow would be my only option.

Even with four valves, you can still get some drift since the cylinders are plumbed in parallel. The system pressure is ~2,500psi, but in use will see spikes much higher.

Two places that sell them ( I think anyway) are:

Home | Trausch Dynamics

Surplus Center


But, I'm with Stan on this, it's not a manlift device with safety features. I'm lucky in that my 300cx loader has zero drift, but I'd still hesitate to work from it especially by myself.
