Add-On Hydraulic System For Older Model Versatiles
"The only type of power older Versatile tractors were short on was hydraulic power for running high capacity machines such as air seeders. That's a problem we've corrected," says Corny Chomenchuk about a new add-on dedicated hydraulic system his company makes for 1976-'84 Versatile 4-WD's.
Atom-Jet Industries' system is totally in-dependent of the tractor's existing hydraulics, Chomenchuk notes. It's specifically designed for a 15 gpm pump, he says.
Controlled by a toggle switch from the cab, the system can reduce tractor engine rpm's by adjusting engine speed to implement load and speed, thus helping to reduce operating costs and noise levels, he says.
Two kits, both backed by a two-year parts and labor warranty, are available.
Series II, for 1976-'79 Versatiles, uses a direct drive gear pump, 15 gpm, 2100 rpm, direct-mounted to an accessory drive on the tractor's engine. It connects to the original reservoir with a special outlet or to an optional Atom-Jet reservoir.
Series III, for 1980-'84 Versatiles, mounts on tractor frame and runs off the engine crankshaft. It uses a double-V belt set to drive the new pump which comes with a 34-gal. Atom-Jet reservoir.
The kits sell for $2,195 and $3,450 (Canadian), respectively. Purchase price will be fully refunded for up to one year if not completely satisfied, says the manufacturer..
