    Default Fit Rite Hydraulic Top Link Kit- Installed Today

    Took me about 5-10 minutes to install. One hose had a note to install at the rod end. Did that but not sure if it really matters the order in which you plug in to back of tractor. Anyhow, heres a quick video of operation. HAd to use the 2 ton roller so i included some video of hooking up. Ill ad more videos as i use different implements. Really LOVE this product right off the bat

    The placement of the hoses is to allow the restrictor fitting to control the larger volume of fluid at the closed end of the cylinder, has nothing to do with directional control. Thanks for posting the video. I hope that it continues to make your life easier.

    Nice top-link and tractor! ....but it looks like it bent the hitch on your roller.

    I want one of those. It's on my radar.

    You gotta mine allot of dirt to find a diamond.

    If you are to put a box blade on and have it rased up in the air. If you are to extend the cylender half way out and then drop the box blade, does the cylender stay at the same length or does it move? I have the Fit-Rite top link too and it will move and not stay at the same length all the time. It kinda acts like it has air in it, but I can't imagine there is still air in it after a year. I don't think that it is a problem with the cylender though, because I can get it to stay perfectly rock solid if I do certain things with a flow restrictor.

    I was just wanting to know if that was normal for non checked top links, or I have have a problem with my setup (again not the cylenders fault as far as I know).

    so far from things i tried to today, it stays the length you set it at even if it is weighted. Is your relief valve closed all the way on the tractor? I have a relief valve on the back where the rear remotes are and i had it open at first and noticed the same thing. didnt know it was open. I closed it and all is good

    At the risk of sounding really stupid, what bypass valve? I have a JD4300. Maybe I really missed something here and have been living with this when it could be much better.

    Thanks for you help.
