E-60 - This was a totally new design in 1991. It is the "Quik Lift". It was the first time since the T Series Pumps that the motor was mounted horizontally. It was the fastest unit Meyer had made to date. The pump itself had a higher GPM flow than previous units, and the standard E-60 pump put out 2500PSI. It was set at 2500 PSI due to the small diameter of the lift piston on the end of the lift ram. The small surface area required 2500 PSI to lift the larger blades. The pump itself is capable of over 5000 PSI but the top cap of the unit will crack into pieces at approximately 3000 PSI. This is why it is VERY important to have the pump pressure set properly, with a pressure gauge. Also available as an E-60H model. The H stands for High Lift, it has a 2" longer stroke versus a standard model E-60. The E-60H utilized the same larger diameter lift piston as the E-47, so pressure was only set at 2000 PSI, which was capable of lifting the larger blades. It also meant less amp draw on the vehicle electrical system with the lower pressure setting. It also featured an adjustable drop speed for the first time. It was discontinued by Meyer Products a couple of years ago. Meyer will offer parts for about 10 years, I am sure the aftermarket will offer them for many more than that. The E-60 is a favorite with many Meyer owners because of its speed. The new E-58H that replaced it in the Meyer line up, and is just as fast, or even faster, and it too has adjustable drop speed.
To adjust the drop speed of the Meyer E-60, you remove the pipe plug on the front of the unit. You will need an 11/16" wrench or socket. Once removed, there is a set screw inside. You will need a 3/16" allen key or hex bit. Turn the screw in to slow down the drop speed, and loosen the set screw to increased the drop speed. Turn the adjusting screw 1/8th of a turn at a time. Be sure to screw the pipe plug back in each time you make an adjustment. IF you do NOT put the pipe plug back in, fluid will squirt out of the port when you drop the plow. To the right of the Drop Speed Adjusting Screw port, is a filter port. There is another filter port on the back of the unit.
