Ford 6000 Hydraulic lift

I have a Ford 6000 tractor that needs dry nitrogen to make the lift perform properly. In the manual, it says there is kit that you can get to install the nitrogen. I have contacted the Ford dealer about the kit and it is a no longer stocked item. I was wondering if someone knows what to use and where you can obtain this nitrogen.

Be careful. I have a 61 ford 6000 and from experience I can tell you that system is very dangerous.That said you can find the nitrogen at most any welding shop and the "charging kit" can easily be made with a gauge and a few fittings. I do like these old 6000 tractors and when serviced and used properly I think they are hard to beat.

You might check with a [shudder] John Deere dealer and see if he will recharge your accumulator. The later Deeres use a variety of accumulators in their tractors. The dealer I recently worked for had all the equip for recharging. All dealers should have this. Whether they will do your job is another thing. It might be better to remove the accumulator and take it to them. Careful, they are charged at about 1800 psi if I remember right, and can hurt you. Another thing, a lot of industrial equipment uses acc's also, and if you are in an area of some heavier industry, it might be possible to get some help there. Hope this helps

Today's Featured Article - Box Plow Blues - by Tom Schwarz. One of the first implements most tractor owners obtain is the box plow. For very little money, this piece of equipment promises to plow and flatten any hill or vale on your ranch road or farm. At least that's what I thought! As simple as a box plow appears, it can be rather challenging to make work correctly. In our sandy soils of Florida, traction is king. You can never have wide enough tires or heavy enough weights to get all the traction you want unless you own a monster tractor. U ... [Read Article]
