Better talk with your dealer about your attachments and how they will work on your new loader. The new S220 and up have increased the high flow GPM. What was high flow hyd. is now closer to standard flow. Check your attachments before you buy, or maybe talk your dealer into footing the labor to convert. Just a thought. **Attachments and Large Frame 40-gpm high-flow Loaders Due to the increased hydraulic flow, not all past and current attachments will work on new large frame 40-gpm high flow loaders. The following attachments will work without modifications. Part Number Attachment Description 6711876 Auger, model 30 6711877 Auger, model 30H 6809445 Auger, model 30C 6705615 Wheel saw, WS12 6705616 Wheel saw, WS18 (prior to current WS18) 6729537 Wheel saw, WS18 (current) 6729566 Wheel saw, WS24 6709103 Planer, 16” manual 6709102 Planer, 16” hydraulic 6905808 Planer, 18” 6905809 Planer, 24” 6726632 Planer, 40” 6906946 Planer, 15” curb 6905792 Planer, 16” surface 7104371 Tiller, 62” 7102125 Tiller, 76” 6707051 Trencher, LT405 6906100 Trencher, LT405 Operating any of the following attachments on the new 40-gpm high flow loaders could cause damage to the attachment and or machine. New models of these attachments will include new valves and hydraulic motors to accommodate the 40-gpm hydraulic flows and should be completed by mid-summer. Part number Attachment description6717395 Chipper, WC8A 6808034 Stump grinder, SG60 7101894 Flail Cutter Snowblower models: 1812, 2118, 2418, SB200 and SB240 The following current and obsolete attachments will not work with the 40-gpm hydraulic system. Part number Attachment description 6714670 Brushcat, 60” 6726544 Brushcat, 90” 6905806 Angle broom, 84” 6906513 Soil conditioner, 72” manual 6905824 Soil conditioner, 72” hydraulic 6958213 Soil conditioner, 84” 6906014 Concrete pump 6707021 Stump grinder, SG50 6662801 Tiller, 52” 6710547 Tiller, 68”

I heard about this from my dealer contact as well. As a question for you, stuz, do you know a) whether tractive performance is changed at all; b) whether flow pressure increased as well? It should be interesting to see how these new machines stack up against the Gehl, Case, and Cat HF machines.

This is stickly for the aux. contolled attachments. The pressure is however rated at 3300 psi. As most of you know, a hyd. hose made 5 years ago was probably only rated at 2500 psi !! Most of your hoses will have a rating on the hose. As always on any Bobcat or attachment, use no less than 2 wire hose if made from a bulk source. If you have a friend on your local Fire Dept., you might ask them for an old piece of a 2" water hose. Then use it as a sleeve over the hoses coming off your couplers on your attachment.

That is a good idea, but personally for the price, i would get new hoses rated at 3,500psi or higher. That is the one thing you never want to burst and be cut by the high pressure oil. I heard a story about a guy that got hit with high pressure diesel which cut his arm, the parametic said it will be ok and he dressed it up, then he spoke to another parametic and he said you MUST go to the hospital straight away. He almost lost his arm because he was told it wasn't serious. Better to be safe than sorry, its hard to think that oil under pressure could be so dangerous.

Injector pressure varies, but can be as high as 4500 PSI. AND can cut and infect you in a heartbeat. By all means use the correct rated hyd. hose. The fire hose is used as a sleeve to keep the hyd. hose from rubbing a hole in , or getting caught on a bolt etc. The fire hose is something most Fire Dept. replace on a regular basis, and most times just throw away.

If a paramedic here told someone they don't need to go to the hospital after an injury from high pressure cut from hydraulics they would be fired immediately! At the very least it can cause blood poisoning. Those cuts are deeper than they appear and they need thorough cleaning. I've seen it done a few times as I drove ambulances at one time in my past.
