I purchased an ariens 16h with a loader, 3 pt hitch, rear p.t.o..... Well whenever i try to lift the loder or bucket they wont go, but if i pulse the handles it will go ittle by little. I tried changing the oil but that didnt help at all.. Could this be air in the system. I need this thing to work... I have a a lot of mulch to move. please help. Also the weird thing is that the manual says to use 10w30. Thats what i used but it just seems weird. The loader even does it with no weight in it. Could it be there isnt enough oil?

If you changed the oil, then it should be full. Does this have a dedicated hydraulic pump, or does it share hydro oil & run off the charge pump? I'm guessing separate dedicated hydraulic system. It's possible the regulator bypass valve is stuck open.

it has a sepperate pump on the front right side of the tractor and is engaged by the switch on the dashboard. where would i find that regulator valve? Is it in that valve body?

If I am not mistaken the regulator or pressure relief valve should be either right on the pump or right after it.

It is likely in the control valve. Most times covered with an acorn nut.

Yep, usually, and sometimes it's just a big cap bolt (non adjustable type) with the psi setting stamped into the top of it.

So many times we bypass the obvious. Guess it's human nature to expect the worst. Glad it was an easy/cheap fix!:thumbs:

Hi 00bluegtp,

Do you have any pics of the 3pt on your Ariens?
I have a old New Holland that I'd like to buy/make a 3pt for and i was curious how yours mounted up.

Thanks,

humpty
