    Default Hydraulic Motor sources?

    I need a hydraulic motor to convert a mechanical PTO drive tiller I have to use with the EarthForce EF-5 I have on order. It would seem to me like this is something someone has done before. Does anyone have any suggestions for a source for such a beast? It would need to be able to handle 3500 psi and 10-20 gpm.

    What I'd really like to do is mount the motor directly to the tiller gearbox. Normally, it would be easier to just get a new tiller, but it's a very heavy duty tiller and I went to the trouble of mounting a scarifier bar to it, so I hate to part with it. (http://www.tractorbynet.com/cgi-bin/...m&Number=56678 has a picture of the tiller...)

    I recall someone mentioning that they wanted to convert a gasoline powered leaf blower to hydro for a Power Trac unit. Power Trac told them they can convert anything to hydro. Just a thought. They seem to know their hydraulics. I recall they were on your possible purchases list[img]/w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif[/img]?

    I don't have any help for ya on the hydraulic question, but I gotta find out what the earthforce EF-5 is? Any web sites? I also loved the scarifier on your tiller, could come in real handy as I think rocks grow fresh every year here in old Kentucky[img]/w3tcompact/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

    zenmek - Check out my "What a long, strange trip it's been..." in the "Other Brands" forum, which I should've named "Goodbye, kubota & PowerTrac - Hello EarthForce". That'll probably give you all the info and links you need. Also, the "EarthForce EF-5 enhancements" topic under "Tractor Customization" contains some more, but it's mostly about what the EF-5 hasn't got, as opposed to what it has.

    zenmek - Oops, I forgot: The scarifier is great for turning up rocks before they have a chance to tear the tiller to pieces. Also if you run into something where the wheels suddenly start spinning, you know you've got hold of a big 'un and you need to roll it up out of the ground (or dig it out, of course, if it's that big...). Plus, in the red clay I till up for my father's garden, if the moisture content isn't just right, it's like brick. The scarifier teeth break right through it, crunch it in to smaller pieces and hold the tiller down in the stuff so it'll chew it up just the way you want it. It's so useful, I don't understand why they aren't at least optional on all tillers. I rarely put them up - even in soft ground they don't hurt a thing - and they can even be lowered quite a bit further than the till depth for subsoiling. Plus, they make a very handy stand to hold the tiller up while you're backing the Freedom Hitch under it. [img]/w3tcompact/icons/laugh.gif[/img]
