Norm Kolb’s Ford 861

I’ve attached some pictures in case you are interested.  The picture of the whole tractor was taken some time before I started putting on the power steering, and the others show how I ended up mounting the flow controller.

I came to appreciate the engineering you put into the system, as all the parts fit and the steering action couldn’t be better.  I hope to get a lot of use out of it for the next couple of decades.

Thanks,

Norm Kolb

Andy Detering’s Crop Dusting Loader

Last year, Andy Deterding of Andy Deterding Ag Aviation (http://andydeterdingagaviation.com) contacted me about using one of my JPS hydrostatic steering units to maneuver a truck mounted loading spout so he could safely fill his crop dusting airplanes with dry fertilizer. This would be Andy’s fifth fertilizer loading unit that he has built….the first using the JPS hydrostatic steering control unit to maneuver the truck’s loading spout.
He was building what he called a “Loader” which consisted of a truck mounted with a dry Fertilizer tank, used to quickly and easily load fertilizer into a crop spraying plane. He wanted to make the loading spout maneuverable so he wouldn’t risk damage when backing the nurse truck up to the plane during the filling process.

 

So after he and I discussing the possibilities, he decided to move forward with the project in which he was successful in building.  I am attaching pictures of the loader truck, he and his crew built using the JPS hydrostatic steering control unit.  And also a video of the loading process from nurse truck to crop dusting airplane.

This year, Andy decided to build another loader truck, so he contacted me for a JPS Hydrostatic Steering Control Unit with steering components.
One of the most enjoyable parts of my job is thinking out of the box to build useful products by adapting them with the steering components that I have.  I think you will agree that Andy came up with a novel idea to safely fill his crop dusting airplanes!

Dave Deyo’s 8N

 

I just want to let you know that I have used your power steering for over 8 years on my 48 8n an it has worked flawlessly. Initially I had to beef up the steering rods and mounting brackets but that was expected for what I was using the loader for. Again thank you for a great product that has made using my tractor and loader a dream. Real quality.

Joel Lantz’s Ford 1300

Hello Roland,

Here are a couple shots of my 1300 Ford blowing snow. We are about 4 feet behind normal snowfall at this point-still have had over 3 feet. The power steering unit you made for my tractor works extremely well. It might just save my shoulder from surgery. If you don’t mind, I will give you website to our local tractor place – they could not find any ps units from their sources.

You have made my tractor enjoyable again.

Thank-you,

Joel Lantz

Bill McCroskey’s Ford

This is what Bill McCroskey had to say about the Jackson Power Steering unit that he installed on his newly restored Ford Tractor.  As you can see, he made his tractor new again and power steering was a welcome upgrade. Bill sent me this picture of his Ford tractor helping install a pickup bed for a friend.  Here are some of his comments.

Roland,
Please feel free to post. I am happy to have known you and you helped me get started on my project with your experience and knowledge. I use the loader all the time and don’t know how I moved and loaded stuff before as I keep the forks on most of the time.  I attached a picture of the Ford moving a flatbed that I am integrating a bale mover into for my farmer friend thought you might enjoy.

860 Ford

Recently, I installed Power Steering on an 860 Ford tractor.  This particular tractor came with factory power steering.  However, the steering quit working and the owner took off the steering cylinders and tried to steer it manually…which was almost impossible to do. So, I converted the JPS steering cylinders to accommodate the original drag rod that came out with all of the factory power steering tractors.  And I used an automotive power steering pump to power the steering unit.  I am pleased to report that the steering is effortless now…and this 860 Ford runs like a dream!  Only thing left is a paint job to get it all prettied up!  Owner is a happy camper!
