Ford 4000 Hydraulics

Just bought a Ford 4000 tractor. But the lifting rams are slow. Any way of making them more responsive?

Howdy stevcolx,

Welcome aboard the tractor forum.

Your loader is probably hooked up to the tractor's internal hydraulics, which produces 5 gpm. Slow. To speed it up, you can install a front engine mounted pump, or a PTO driven pump, about 15 gpm.
