Maximize Hydraulic Efficiency with Low RPMs
20 Nov 232 min 48 sec

If you are going to run hydraulics on your tractor, then you need to crank those RPMs, right? Maybe not so much. Full hydraulic Flow at low RPMS.  Matt says it is good for engine-wear and good for your wallet.

00:00 Hey, coming at you from Miles Farms with my man Matt Miles, and we're standing in front of this F 9 36 verio where you've been trialing it 00:07 for the last 30 days. One cool feature you're kind of excited to tell me about is full hydraulic flow at lower RPMs. I want you to tell me how that all works, and I want you also, 00:16 then I'm gonna ask you later why it matters. Talk about it. Well, you know, on, on most tractors through my lifetime, 00:21 if you wanted the hydraulics to run a full flow, you had to increase RPMs on the engine. Uh, the these tractors are specifically designed to run full oil flow at 00:31 lower idle speeds, you know, all all the way down to probably idle speed. So, you know, it, it, it, it's a pretty important factor. And hydraulics is, 00:38 hydraulics is the main thing that these tractors are used for. There's always something hydraulic hooked to the tractor, 00:44 Right? Jason from fence, step on in here, and you're the more technical expert. I know that growing up, if you wanted your hydraulics to work, you had to, 00:51 you know, shove the throttle all the way forward. And guys like Matt and I were old nuts. Remember, your old man didn't like it when you were out there 'cause it's like you're 00:57 beating on the tractor to do that. But you know what? I gotta get the hydraulics to lift. It does matter. How does it work? And then talk me through the real life farming applications. 01:06 Yeah, and that's not the case anymore with, with the fin tractor. With, with fin ID technology because we run the engine a lot slower, RPM, uh, 01:14 and, and get the maximum torque at that lower RPM. We also can get our full hydraulic flow with, uh, a minimum of 1300 RPM with this particular tractor with dual pumps. 01:24 That's 112 gallon a minute at 1300 RPM. You can't do that with any other machines. So your engine's running slower, you're saving fuel, you're saving wear and tear on that engine, 01:35 and you still get maximum flow outta your hydraulics. As a farmer, this matters to you. We just talked about reduction of fuel usage at $4 diesel, let's say that's, 01:42 that matters. Uh, if you're gonna keep a tractor for 10 or 15 years, is it reasonable to say you're actually putting, uh, a fourth less hours on 'em? 01:49 Because there's different kinds of hours. There's, there's hours where it's, where it's, uh, going full throttle, uh, running the manure pump. 01:55 There's hours where it's, uh, you know, cruising along at a nice little idling speed. It does matter, doesn't It? Yes, it definitely matters. Uh, if you, 02:02 if you got a tractor you're purchasing or, or, or keeping longer or whatever. Uh, a lot of times when we purchase a used tractor, 02:08 we find out what the hours have been doing. Yeah. You know, if they've been on a planter here on this flat ground, 02:13 really haven't had any work done, you know, they're, they're really not working themselves. So the least amount you can work this engine, you know, 02:19 just adds to the stability of the tractor later on. All right. So it saves you fuel it, see you're wear and turn your tractor. And it's all still comes from the same objective with the hydraulic. 02:27 Sounds like a win-win to me. Yeah, It does to me too. That's Matt Miles. That's our friend Jason at fent. I'm Dave Mason talking about this here. Tractor, 02:34 the FENT 9 36 verio that these guys have been putting through the PACER for the last 30 days. 02:38 Stay tuned for more information about products for trial and to bring it to you for your farming operation.
