  • Hi there,

  • Davis front loader. I had a 9N(?) once upon a time that had one.
    I believe all you have is the fill port. So, given that prospect, I would have to drop the loader flat on the ground and fill to the plug. Reinstall the plug and that plug quite possibly is vented. First time the loader comes down, you might have a great squirt out of the vent hole.
    Ya' might wanna put a rag or three over the vent hole to catch the squirt.
    Is primitive great or what??
    If the loaer quits working, or is jerky, good chance it is low on fluid.
    What kind of fluid?
    303 Hyd fluid or engine oil is the typical fill.

  • I used 20w non-detergent oil in a Wagner loader that I had. Never had a problem.

  • The manual does say. It says use the dipstick in the reservoir and fill if below the "L" mark on the stick. Is there no dipstick on your loader?

    TOH

  • There is no dipstick and just below the fill cap the neck turns 90 degrees. There is a small square headed bolt about half-way down the oil reservoir that I think might be an indicator for how far to fill the tank.
