    That's why they are extra cost items...mo' money for the company.

    The MF 16xx's series come with one set of rear remotes standard. Other CUT in the same size range do not

    seems like I saw them installed on a CUT to work the chute rotation and elevation on a 3 PH snowblower....just another reason to have them, I guess.

    These auxiliary ports are used to operate implements that require hydraulic power (e.g. hydraulic motors on post hole diggers, hydraulic cylinders (rams) on a variety of equipment). For example, my wheel disc has a large hydraulic ram to raise and lower the transport wheels

    Dealer installed remotes generally cost $500-800 per unit (including the hydraulic control valve, hoses, hydraulic quick disconnects). I was lucky. When I bought my new 5525 in 2008, the dealer installed the triple remotes for $750--couldn't pass up that deal.

    Hope this info helps.

    But that's the problem with places to put stuff, they always get filled up..

    Kioti's come (mine did anyway..) without the valves, but with the location for them. I think it cost me about 550 to have the dual remotes installed.

    Here, the local kubota dealer wants $2,000 for the set-up and no implements. I think that it is a little steep so I'm looking to buy and install myself with sons help. Just need to know where to locate source. Any suggestions?
