    Joe: Sorry, dont have picture capability. The owner's manual shows the setup in it. The kubota hydraulic setup includes everything- hoses, quick releases, hydraulic levers, o-rings, holder for couplers ect. They even give you 4 male couplers for the attachment hoses. No special tools except need metric wrenches and socket set. Jack-up the rear of the tractor, remove right rear tire and fender, then follow enclosed instructions. I did use the wrong set of o-rings first and realized mistake when started attaching the female couplers. Instructions give no clue to determine which 0-rings to use where. Had to remove valve and rearrange o-rings. Tire is easy to remove if doesn't contain fluid. I would estimate 3-4 hrs time from tire off to tire back on. Since I did it once, I would probably take 2-3 hrs if tried again.

    Radman et al, I paid about $1500 for top-n-tilt plus aux (three valve/controllers) Installed by the kubota dealer. This was 3 months ago on a new L4610HSTC. Everything works fine, fits like it came that way from factory (same stuff installed by dealer) So far I haven't seen a need for another remote, but I sure get a lot of use out of the one I have. Initially there was a glitch in the install as the hydraulic line/fitting out the back of the remote connection farthest outboard from centerline was extremely difficult to use. The back side of it was too close to the tractor and did not give enough flex/motion to accomodate the quick connect action. They changed it to a different one under waranty and now it works perfectly.

    Are my prices out of line with others's experiences? If I got a "hot deal" I'll have to thank the owner and his tech assistant (they were thte sales team).
