    Default Adding additional Hydraulic hookups?

    Im new to farming and tractor use so, this might be a dumb question. Can I add additional hydraulic hook ups to our International 444 to run implements that require hydraulic use? I would like to upgrade from our very old sickle bar to a newer disk mower that requires the hydraulics to raise and lower it from the horizontal position. Is this possible? I know some of the 444 had FEL so is there a way to utilize this ability for other implements or is it a different system for non FEL like our tractor? Thanks for the replys!

    Hi again i assume from your question you have no auxiliary hydraulic valves on the tractor at present??

    To simply tip a trailer you can use the FEL tapping to provide a single acting service using the levers and control valves already on the tractor.

    For extra service you can add 2 extra valves, single or double acting to the manifold on the l/hand side of the hydraulic housing under seat , behind your left knee.

    I will find a parts layout with part no's and post later.!!!

    Thanks for the information and reply! So, would a front end loader use the same controls as the 3 pt hitch lift?

    Yes, in its simplest form it could, but this will only give you 1 service, single acting to lift the loader, if you have gravity tip for bucket./fork o/k, if you have hydraulic tip/crowd on bucket then you need extra valves.

    You can c still fit a loader valve bank and supply them from hitch valve, without fitting extra auxiliary valves on tractor.

    Whats the serial no of your tractor ???

    Thanks for the information! So, the FEL tapping could be used to flip a hay disk mower from horizontal to vertical position?

    Yes providing it only needs a single acting service, ie: hydraulic one way, gravity or springs the other way.

    Revisiting an old thread. Im looking at getting a vermeer 504 roll baler to use with our international 444 just for a while until we get a bigger tractor. What hydraulic hook ups are needed to get this to work? I have not yet pursued adding additional hookups as I was asking about at the start of this thread but, with the purchase of the baler I will need to. Thanks for any info on this.

    What services does your baler need??? As the tractor was only designed to support 2 services!!also when built the systems were not really meant to be used as a continuous flow/return system ??
