    Well, I'll be a monkey's uncle My 445C is running strong and out of the mud. Time for a nap... Thanks everyone! What a great group! OK, simple problems are easy to overlook. I was stuck in the mud, really stuck and the loader failed. After a couple weeks of moaning and groaning, TractorTect...

    loader float

    Ted, you are a genius you nailed it, I'm so blind. I could not see the uncoupled hose without a flashlight. Any way it is the high-pressure hose from the divider behind the seat on the right. One end is connected to the divider and the male end is clean and loose. It is nighttime, so at first...

    loader float

    Basically, it all boils down to your suggestion. Most everyone said the same thing, only a little differently. I had the loader on float and used the chain to lift loader. My mistake, I gotta disconnect and plug dome hoses and catch the fluid.

    loader float

    Y'all seem to be adamant about something I don't quite follow you I have a simple loader system on my 445C industrial model here is the layout. I think I just lift the loader bucket, which is on float, then tow it all out. If it is necessary to disconnect some lines, I will plug everything exposed.

    loader float

    Thanks Mike, but my brain is in a tangle of sorts. If I plug the hyd hose, I don't think the piston will move one way or the other. However, since the loader is in float mode, it should be free to move. Am I right?

    Everyone has made good suggestions. I will disconnect the curl and try to drag it, if it doesn't rain for at least a week. The road in is either hard clay or mud.

    loader float

    My problem may be severe. The loader doesn't work at all. The transmission bumps into fwd or reverse but the clutch won't engage the wheels. I didn't do it! A mechanic helped. At my age it wouldn't be worth a confrontation. Do you know if I can adjust the clutch? I have the electronic clutch pedal.

    eKretz, please let me know how to set the float on my NH 445C loader. I can't get the bucket out of the mud. Would it damage anything if I just forced it with my 20-ton bottle jack? Should the control linkage be in a certain location? Fred

    eKretz and I both settled at 85%. Dead slow when I remove my foot from the pedal. A soft clunk in a couple seconds. give it rpms and off you go. Again, foot on clutch pedal, dead slow, shift, take foot off pedal, couple of seconds, soft clunk, then rpms. I hope I made some sense.

    eKretz and TractorTech, now that you both have me working, my anxiety is lubrication. Do you know if anyone has a ready list for a unit like my 445C? I'm worried I'll miss something in the manuals, and I wonder if there are alternatives to the fluids specified.

    ekretz on #1. I set the bottom at 65% which is 9.4 volts (I think) anyway the battery I was told tops out at 14.5v and the solenoid should not exceed 10v, therefore 14.5v is to 10% as 100v is to x, 1000 divided by 14.5 = 69%. So I set it at 65% = 9.4v. I thought the top slot was slow start, 3...

    eKretz, TractorTech, On #1. I have 3.0 seconds above and 65% below. I had a hard jerk. Today I reduced it to 45% and it was a much gentler Jerk. I will go back to 9v and be gentle shifting. My guy agrees with you about about lowering the voltage. It was my brilliant idea.

I've put it low gears and slowed it down before shifting. 1. is set at 9.4 v, I will set it at 7 volts and see if that will lessen the jerk. maybe the solenoid...
