    :-) , thanks, but I would not go that far...I just love building things...and they say I have some extra "wire" for it. This backhoe project is the most complex project so far.

    RScotty, thanks for the link, I've read the whole topic, and in my opinion you had some little object, piece of metal or similar in your system, thats why your swing did not work properly. By the way, I would like to see some videos of your kubota M59 at work..do you have any?

    Yes, I think you are right. Possibly a piece of crud was caught in the control valve or bypass valve and dislodged by the backflow of fluid when gravity acting on the heavy assembly forcibly moved the cylinder.

    No, no video and we are still under a foot or so of snow. Here's some pictures from a warmer time.

    Pride of place goes to our 2 cylinder John Deer 530. She's as modern & useful today as 50 years ago.
    A Kubota M59 & a JD310SG for TLB work....giving us options on doing the same job.
    By the barn sleeps a pair of 33 & 16 hp 4wd US Yanmars getting along in years: Mr. Big & Ms Little.
    And a yard full of well-beaten implements which work far better than they look.

    Thanks. Yes, I enjoy building stuff. This project is challenging but that makes me try even harder.
