Hy Lo Pump Hydraulic Pump Question

• CATEGORIES: Features

Dan Moreton asked a question that I can’t answer. Anyone have thoughts? You can contact him directly here ttlmidcounty @ gmail.com (remove spaces around the @)

“I have a 1967 Power King Tractor that utilizes the large Square Model Jeep Hy-Lo Hydraulic pump to lift/lower the plow. It has a 1/4″ intake and output that connects to a dual action hydraulic cylinder. The unit is well suited for this operation.

I have a manual hitch and wanted to make it hydraulic. I saw a Jeep Hi-Lo self contained unit UHT 37046. When it arrived I noted it was smaller,( almost square) had almost identical hardware and fitting on top except it only has one 1/4″ street elbow.

How do I connect this unit to operate a dual action hydraulic cylinder? This tractor is my first experience with hydraulics so keep that in mind when you answer.”

Gran Manufacturing’s Hydraulic Loader

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

UPDATE II: Todd’s got a near complete version fo the loader/fork lift. You can review all the photos along with a brochure that accompanied it on this page: http://www.willys-overland.com/forklift/

1955-gran-hydraulic-loader-todd-1

Todd Paisley’s Gran Hydraulic Forklift / Loader

UPDATE: Barry shared a link to the video, likely from late 1954 or early 1955, below that demonstrates the Gran Loader in action between minutes 9:24 to 9:50.

In October of 1954, Willys Motors announced the introduction of the Gran Manufacturing Hydraulic Loader. The Loader was unique in that it was essentially a rear facing forklift attached to a jeep. It was available in two sizes, one with 108″ lift capability and a smaller one with 69.5″ lift capability, and in two styles, adjustable or non-adustable forks. One feature noted was that it ONLY took 8 hours to install, which made it pretty much a permanent jeep feature it would seem to me.

Gran Manufacturing was based in Perrysburg, Ohio, but I couldn’t uncover any more information about that company. Below are some brochures that depict the loader.

Note that the 1954 brochure is from a series of photos on eBay that were taken at angles. I straightened them out to make them more readable, but the quality is still pretty poor.

This first image is out of the 1955 Specialize Equipment Booklet.

The October 29, 1954 Willys Motors announcement of the Gran Manufacturing rear facing fork lift:
