Serco 7000
« on: March 19, 2016, 10:45:35 PM »
I just bought a picker truck today with a real tight Serco 7000 for a loader. Anyone have any experience with a Serco 7000? Are they a good loader?

  My guess is that of all the trucks hauling wood in MN, probably around 80% have a center mount loader on the trailer. Of those, 90% are Serco 7000's. A very popular and reliable loader. The outfir I work for has around 20 trucks, each one of them towing a Sta-lite trailer with a Serco 7000 mounted on it.  Keep it greased up, they do not recommend moly grease because some of the remote grease lines have plugged up with it in the past. The lines rupture, you think your greasing, but it's not making it where it's supposed to go. I think this is for the center swing bearing. I haven't been around them as far as operating for a few years, I never had any trouble other than knocking a hose off once in a while ::)

Good loader  we've had a few of them.  A little on the weak side with main boom all the way down but once u learn how to get around that, no problem.  Only issues we had were broken swing stops (careless operators)  and broken slew ring bolts.  Be vigilant on these and you should be good
