Disconnect H130 loader - Lower the bucket until it rests on the ground. Once it's disconnected you want to be sure that there is no space between the ground and the bucket to avoid excess movement. Move slightly forward. This will put forward pressure onto the arms and bucket of attachment while relieving pressure off of the front axle. Lift the knuckles into place on both sides. Lifting the knuckles into the upright position will engage the lock and latches them to the frame of attachment. Begin to pull away from the end loader. Using the loader joystick, pull back slowly and allow the front arm to drop into place.

Once the H130 loader is fully disconnected, it will fall back into place and rest on the ground. Engage the parking brake, turn off and step off the machine. Use the loader joystick to release hydraulic pressure and carefully disconnect hydraulic lines. There may still be excess pressure remaining in the hydraulic lines, be very careful during the removal process even after wiggling the joystick. Place dust caps on hydraulic lines. Depending on the length of time between connections; dirt, water, dust, and other debris can build up in the lines and cause damage or disruption when connecting. To assure a quick and easy connection process, be sure to place the caps on when storing the front loader.

John Deere H130 Loader Troubleshooting

Slow or jerky operation: Cold hydraulic oil - Run engine and cycle loader. Use low viscosity hydraulic oil in cold weather. Low hydraulic oil - See tractor Operator's Manual. Poor oil circulation - Check transmission/hydraulic oil filter. Engine speed too slow - Increase engine speed. Internal cylinder leakage - Test cylinders for internal leaks. Install cylinder repair kit. Faulty JD 2320 tractor hydraulic system - Check and service. Faulty quick-connect coupler - Adjust or repair. Overfilling bucket or attachment - Reduce load.

Oil leaks: Defective fitting or hoses - Replace worn parts. Loose connections. Tighten fittings. Worn or damaged O-ring or wiper seal in cylinder rod end - Install cylinder repair kit.
Only one mast engages mounting frame: Loader on uneven ground - Park loader on even ground when detaching.
Difficult to connect hydraulic coupler: Hydraulic system pressurized - Relieve pressure.
Insufficient lift capacity: Load is greater than loader lift capacity - See Specifications. Internal lift cylinder leakage - Install cylinder repair kit.
Loader functions do not correspond to multi-function control lever movement: Improperly connected hydraulic hoses - Connect hydraulic hoses correctly.
Cylinders inoperative: Hose improperly connected - Connect hoses correctly. Defective quick-connect coupler - Adjust or repair.
Bucket tines bend or break: Only a few tines were under load - Be sure three or more tines are under load.
Excessive wear on bucket cutting edge and wear pads: Not using float position - Use float position.
Excessive wear on bucket cutting edge: Bucket is riding on cutting edge instead of wear pads - Use bucket level indicator to ensure bucket rides on wear pads.

Bucket or loader drifts down from raised position: Leak in hydraulic circuit - Tighten fittings. Worn or Damaged O-rings in Tractor Selective Control Valve (SCV) - Repair SCV. Internal leakage in loader cylinders - Install cylinder repair kit.
