Cat 906

Just thought I would share some pics of a plow frame I built for my Cat 906. I ended up with a free 9'HD Fisher blade that needed to be bent back into place about 12in. bent back on the rh side just shy of the middle of the blade. It was bent hard enough that the trip edge was tripped and also bent. We set up some blocking and used a Cat 315C excavator and pushed down at the bend and it came back into shape. I am setting it up so I can put a small wing on as well, similar to a Cox wing or like HP Fairfield puts on 550 and 5500. Its fun to fabricate and engineer as I go. Always looking for thoughts and ideas.

Nice!
I toooo love to fabricate.
I have a fisher just like it for the bobcats. The only problem with my newer ones is to much flow and no way to regulate it. when it turns it turns
what do you do to regulate yours? I noticed that box where the hydralic hoses join together.
From what I see the molboard still looks excellant for haveing to straighten it. Looks really good.

that is a cushion relief valve so that if I hit anything it wont blow a hose, but bypass to the other side. I was very lucky when we bent it back into shape, the bottom of the excavator bucket matched the curve of the blade almost perfectly.

Ah Yes !
That explains why I keep blowing hoses.
Your obviosly a man who has had this experiance.
I'm guessing I could pick one up at the local Farm/Fleet Store?
I dont know why but I was thinking of a (?) double acting cylinder being the fix, vers. the single thats onit right now.
Does this make any sence at all ?

You need a simple flow restrictor.

They are a few bucks each.

The flow restrictors and the crossover relief are available thru any hydraulic shop and Graingers as well. The crossover relief shouldnt be more than $125

" Thanks cretebaby ! "
I'll have to ask them this week when I go to replace the 10 hoses that I have broken laying on the shop floor.
All these years I was just blaming it on abuse!

FYI, don't put the flow restrictor between the crossover relief valve and the blade cylinders. You don't want to restrict the flow to the crossover. Our restrictors are up by the quick couplers where we connect it to the tractor, and the crossover is down on the plow right between the cylinders. Makes a huge difference, we actually have had the same cylinder bolts and hoses on the plow since we added the crossover

Ditto what he said.

I have started back on my wing project for the 906. I was fortunate enough to to get a 7 1/2 ft fisher blade from a fellow member of Lets Talk Snow (Thanks Ray). We cut the top of the blade to get the taper and have tack welded some channel along the top for re-enforcement. Next I am going to cut some ribs so that I can mount the front hitch and the pusharms on the back of the blade.

I just keep it simple & mount a blade to a quick coupler frame in a rigid fashion, then you can control some down pressure or float it. I don't worry about angle function because we set them up with box like sides, or just get a nice 10' or 12' box for the 906. Better for stacking & less to break. I leave the angle work to the trucks. Plus the added power & weight of the compact loaders can tear up regular blades in the blink of an eye. NICE MACHINE! They are the cadillac of loaders, tons of power & quick plus alot more oporater friendly than the skid steers. Nice choice!
