Stucchi offers hydraulic coupler solutions
You should upgrade or use an alternative browser. Thread starter merrimacmill Start date Dec 31, Location MA. Hey everyone, I'm writing in because I am having a lot of trouble hooking the AUX hydraulics up on my Case 85xt skid steer to operate a snow plow on it. The plow came with the skid steer, and when I first got it I hooked it up to try it out and it worked alright, and it was hard to get the connectors on, but I forced it and I went.
On the plow side I can get the female to go into the male on the skid steer, and then I cannot get the male on the plow side to go into the skid steer. It will go part way, like almost all the way, but then just won't go in. I moved the pedal back and forth and the H pattern controls around to relieve pressure, but it still doesn't work.
I took a screw driver and pushed in both sides to let a little bit of fluid out incase the pressure was stopping it, but that didn't help either. Again, right before I brought this machine to sit onsite I hooked it up and needed to really push it to get it on but it worked fine. Now the snows flying and I put the pusher from the skid on my new tractor so I need this plow on there. Any ideas? Thanks in advance. DeVries PlowSite Veteran.
Location Ontario. The couplers were probably disconnected under pressure. Then move the auxilary hydraulics lever left and right to release the pressure. At this point you should be able to connect the hoses. Hope this works. Location S. I don't know how the Case aux. Even then, I've had the same problem as you on my Bobcat, to the point that I will not unhook the plow unless I don't need to hook it back up for a few hours.
It seems that after a few hours of sitting it they will hook up no problem.
It also helps to pull the outermost collar by hand towards you on the female coupler of the machine once you have the male plow side coupler in place. I hope that makes sense! Location Caledon, Ontario Canada. I'm not familiar with skids and I know you said you relieved the pressure with a screw driver but I'd slowly unscrew the the couplers off the blade and then try hooking them up. If that doesn't work unscrew them off your skid. If your blade has a cross over relief valve I'd connect the 2 hoses togethter for transport and when leaving it off the machine.
If you don't couple them together it creates pressure on the fitting if the angle cylinder are moved at all which gernerally happens when loading and unloading. Location Northern BC. I've had the same problem with 2 different Cat skidsteers.

I think it was because the temp changed between unhooking and rehooking and the fluid expanded. Both times I cracked one of the fittings to let some fluid out be sure and catch the fluid so the customer doesn't complain and it went right together. The fittings may also have some ice in them; I carry a small propane torch, use with caution and don't rush and burn something.
Location milwaukee WI. I was going to say pretty much what JD dave said.
That's basically how we do it if there is a problem with pressure while hooking up an implement. Other than that, you might have a bad coupler. Mark Oomkes PlowSite Fanatic. Location Grand Rapids, MI. JD Dave; said:. Click to expand In2toys Senior Member.
Skid steer attachments
Location Elbert, Co. I have had to crack the lines once or twice. DeereMan85 Junior Member. Location Iowa. To echo what someone else said, always hook the couplers on the attachment together. Changes in temp create pressure otherwise. This also ensures that your couplers stay clean.
You probably need to crack open the coupler on the attachment to relieve pressure. I've had this happen a lot when I've rented attachments to people and they don't hook the couplers together when they're done like I politely ask them to do. DaySpring Services PlowSite. Location Hamburg, New York. My bobcat has a button I hold down to relieve pressure, then I push the coupler in and hold for a couple seconds and it will come right off. Location alberta canada. Location Southern WI. On our Bobcats the dealer said turn the key all the way left for 5 sec.
I think that's what I remember anyway. Not sure on Case just trying to give another option.
Is your john deere hydraulic coupler leaking?

Along with what all was said I spray mine all down with WD to keep grime from corroding the couplers that also keeps them working better. On my Cat before I unhook couplers, I shut off machine and relieve pressure on each side. Then I disconnect couplers. When I reconnect, I do it again to make sure machine side is relieved and I already know other end is relieved and this helps me alot. Only time I have problems is when it is really cold. I either torch little or put my hand around for a few minutes, and they go right in. Thanks for all the input guys. I ended up calling a buddy of mine who was the owner and he said the ice freezes them up and to take a torch to it for like seconds and then it will slip on.
So I did this and sure enough, it slipped right on.
He said it would happen all the time unless I was constantly using the aux hydros during the weather or cold, so he would carry a mini torch in his truck. What can I do to prevent this? Change to new couplers? Or is it just common?
