I just bought my first compact tractor and was wondering if other 3240/3540 owners with the 724 loader found it a little weak? I found out that it will lift and curl simultaneously when there is no load in the bucket but once the pressure builds it will only operate one at a time. It is even on the operational sticker on the loader mount.

I was moving some wet topsoil around this weekend and there were a few times it would not break out of the pile with a full bucket. I thought that the hydraulics would have enough power to lift the back wheels off the ground before the relief valve tripped.

Is the relief valve set for the same PSI for the small loader as the large one? When I looked at the installation manual for the loader there was no mention of resetting it to match the larger loader.

Any thoughts or am I asking too much from my unit. I am used to a Ford 655B TLB but it should have a bit more punch than what it does for the size of bucket.

LA514 maximum pressure 2560 psi
LA724 maximum pressure 2630 psi
L3240 pressure maximum 2560 psi
Relief valve may well be set below maximum. ....

Not familiar with your tractor but all three compacts I have owned (green, blue and currently orange) have had that same issue. My guess is that you are asking too much of it.

That is not really a fair comparison between a compact tractor vs a full industrial machine. I have a customer that we sent out a 5030 tlb to replace his L-48 while making some repairs. You should listen to him with the differences! ....

I agree Art. If I want to move some heavy material quickly I use the Case 580. ....
