    Default Top and tilt hookups complete, thanks mountainview ranch!

    I ordered a top and tilt setup from Brian (mountainview), who I believe is the owner of fitritehydraulics. It was delivered last week, just as he said it would. I opened the packages and installed it yesterday.
    First the packaging. The cylinders and hoses were encased in rigid foam insulation, very nice way to prevent damage. The 90* fittings and nipples were in plastic bags with plastic collars protecting the threads. 2 of the hoses had tags on them directing me to install in the cylinder end. 2 of the quick connects looked like they had an additional nipple between the hose end that I'm not sure why. But, I'm sure Brian will know. Everything went together as it should with no leaks!! Now I just need a box blade to justify it, lol.
    I had a very positive Experiance when I bought my Kioti from the turf team in Morris il. I then purchased a grapple and forks from Titan ind., and had another positive Experiance. It has continued on from Brian at fitritehydraulics. Their are a few people on this great site that seem to be never happy with dealers. Venders. Etc.
    I must be lucky because these 3 company's have have been great.

    Those extra fittings are your flow restrictors.

    Remember when you get that box blade, as heavy as you can afford. 800+ lbs would be a good place to start.

    Good luck and I'm glade that your experience has been a positive one.

    It is good hear of a positive experience. You will love the TNT. I was going to recommend a QH to go with the TNT but I see you have one. They work great together.

    Brian, thanks for the info about the flow restrictors. I keep looking for a box blade on CL and eBay. Havnt found anything yet. And I'm really holding out for a rollover, based on your info (usually heavier too?
    Roger, yes I do have a cheap harbor freight qh I bought 6-7 years ago for my kubota b7100. So far it's holding up, but with a heavier tractor and larger implements its life may be limited, lol. Tim

    Congratulations on your Top and Tilt, you are going to love it, I use mine with a Land Pride HR3584 box blade and agree having used a lighter one a heavier one works much better.

    Tim either a 60" or 65" will fit your tractor about PERFECT. I run a 66" Gannon with my Mahindra 3215 HST and it is a perfect match IMO.

    No not at this time. I have a place that makes them up for me at a reasonable cost.
