I'll just make sure it's clamped in a way that's easy to remove when I need to remove the loader.

    Next question: Do I need to bleed the air out of the lines and cylinder after I get everything connected?

    Thanks again
    I don't remove my loader very often either, but it sure is nice have mid-mount quick connects when I do. I got my quick connects from TSC (~$25 for a set needed 2 sets=$50) and part store charged $5 to cut and add ends. So your talking around $70.00 and you don't have to re-run yours hoses.

    Steel lines kit for the loader with the mid disconnects run back to the 3rd function kit on the rear. Done right factory kits and looks factory. The only way to fly!

    Or, save the $70+ bucks plus cost of hard lines and just run a single pair of lines secured with zip ties from back to front. Removal takes two minutes longer than with split system and reinstallation takes ten minutes and new zip ties.

    Works just as well. Might look more country but who are we trying to impress?

    ya that works too but I guess the best setup is the electric switch on the joystick. They all work!

    This is my hard line kit I did, only cost was about $150 since I had steel lines already, if you want more pics I can get some I would keep the flat face cause all skidsteer attachments are flat, I use all attachments though out all of the skidsteers and my tractor, I borrow a lot of attachments from my dad

    That's the first albino grapple I've seen. Rare!

    Got some more photos of the aux front lines, yes the grapple is homemade to clean and finish land clearing jobs and prep for seeding, I use it alot with the tractor for new snowmobile trails, got a plow for it I'll get pictures of that tomorrow, and it's nice to have all the coupling the same.

    I ordered the adapters and hose assemblies from DiscountHydraulicHose.com and finally got the hydraulics hooked up. After cycling it a few times supposedly to work the air of the lines (really I was just playing), I noticed that both of the hoses were dripping at the crimp on the straight fitting. After playing a little more, keeping an eye on those fittings, I heard a pop at the rear remotes that I though was quick connect coming loose. Nope, the 90 degree fitting blew right off the hose! Now I have to unclamp, disconnect and ship them back to DHH so they can "test" them and make new ones if "necessary".

    It's still killing me

    Sounds like a poorly trained employee made your hoses. No excuse. The connection systems used today by hydraulic shops really should be virtually leakproof if a competent individual uses the correct components and press. Sorry for your frustration. I can imagine how you feel.
