I got the ehydro and was curious what RPM shoudl i run it at for best fuel efficiency and performance when doing loader work? I was running it at 2600 rpm, is this good? Thanks for the help, prolly with have more ? forth coming.

Howdy Jay,

I'm looking to pick up my 3120 in about two weeks maybe. How do you like yours so far?

Will

Unless I am using the pto or just need a quick boost in power or speed; I run my 4410 between 1,800 to 2,000 rpm which is near its torque peak.

If using the loader, you may want to keep the RPM's up around 2600. The loader is run off the hydraulics which is run from a hydraulic pump. The hydraulic pump gives max pressure at a certain RPM and is run off the tractor's engine. So by running the engine at a lower RPM (say to get max torque out of the engine) your hydraulic pump is not running at it's optimal speed. As a result, your loader may not work as well as it should/could.

Same applies to the hydrostat. If you are dinking around, you can run at lower RPM. But if you are doing any work, say with loader or an implement, you should run the RPMs up higher to keep the hydraulic pumps running at optimal speed. If you don't, you are pushing your pumps harder than they should be because you are asking them to do hard work but are not giving them the input (engine speed) they need to meet the requirement. It could shorten their life.
