    Default Toolcat 5610 specs

    Finally got a copy of the official 5610 specs. Similar specs as the 5600 as expected. The 3 pt lift capacity is 1775 lbs 24" behind the lift. It surprisingly got a little heavier with an operating weight of 5640 lbs vs the 5490 lbs.of the 5600 model. 25 pto hp.

    Default Re: Toolcat 5610 specs

    Isn't 25 hp for the PTO kind of low? I've got a flail mower that needs at least 30 hp. You would think with all that Bobcat hydraulic flow that it would be higher. The lift capacity seems kind of skimpy too, my kubota with the same net engine horsepower lifts 2980 lbs. How satisfies are you with these numbers?

    Is the suspension and general layout the same as the 'D'? I'm still concerned about the suspension being as good as the 'D' because of my bumpy field issue.

    Any chance you could scan the specs and post them here?

    You have considered the same limitations I have noticed. The 25 pto hp is probably marginal IMHO, but in reality for 95% of my tasks it should be OK. My ideal would be about 30 pto hp. Hydraulic motor ptos operate differently than true direct drive pto. I have a pto adapter for my skid steer that I use ocassionally with 6' bushhog. SS has about 20 gpm vs the 27.9 of the 5610. Hydraulic ptos just seem to lose their power and can go gradually to a complete stop with little effect on the SS. Also with tractors, as the rpm decreases from pto speed, the engine actually delvelops higher hp and torque for the first 300-400 rpm drop . Hydraulic motors get their peak hp at max flow and psi, then it is all downhill. The higher flow of the 5610 should give me more power to the pto than the SS. The SS does ok but can't run the mower well in thick grass or brush like a pto driven unit.
    With the 5610, I will probably tweak the hydraulics to 3300 psi from normal setting of 3000. With the higher pressure, I should get around 27.5 pto hp.

    From what I have seen and been told, the suspension is exactly the same.

    The lift capacity also could be a little better. Closer to 2000 lbs would be better. My guess, is they kept it lower because the weight in the dump box was carried over the tires, and the weight now is carried farther behind the tires. From my observations of the 3 pt lift arms, I will probably drill another set of holes a few inches further back in the arms. Some of my ag tractors have 2 holes in the arm to get max lift. I don't think the change in the holes will have any other sigificant effect on the geometry.
