  • Patent number: 6584710
    Abstract: A skid steer vehicle with sprung suspensions is configured to lock the suspensions whenever the operator manipulates a manual control that generates a signal to move the loader arms or the bucket of the vehicle. The operator control, such as a joystick, sends a signal to an electronic controller indicating that the operator has moved the control and is thereby requesting the loader arms or bucket to move. The electronic controller responds to this signal by moving the loader arms or bucket and simultaneously locking the suspensions.

  • Patent number: 6434864
    Abstract: A front loader using smaller capacity engine, due to energy recuperation, while utilizing the same capacity and decreasing fuel consumption and toxic exhaust bulk. The front loader uses energy recuperation both when excavating material and upon movement with simultaneous lift of a loaded bucket. The front loader uses energy recuperation irrespective of the type of transmission to the loader wheels. The front loader uses a single crank control, without throttle control, hydraulic distributor of bucket turn, hydraulic distributor of boom lift, and displacement volume of variable pump-motor working equipment.

  • Patent number: 6173513
    Abstract: A wheel loader, having a higher acceleration and an energy-saving performance, as well as a higher traveling and working efficiency, includes: a traveling system, having an engine (1) as a driving power source; and a hydraulic working system, operated by receiving pressurized oil from a hydraulic pump (81, 82) having the engine (1) as a driving power source. The hydraulic pump can be a variable displacement hydraulic pump (81) or the combination of a fixed displacement pump (82) and an unloader valve (821). The displacement volume (V) of the variable displacement hydraulic pump (81) can be changed from a maximum (Vmax) to a minimum (Vmin) when the hydraulic working system is changed to be in a neutral (non-operating) condition (Wo). The useful output of the hydraulic pump (81,82) can be changed from a maximum (Vmax) to a minimum (Vmin) when a vehicle speed is greater than a specified vehicle speed, or the speed gear is changed from a low side speed gear to a high side speed gear.
