    Default Kubota M59 front hydraulics for snowplow?

    Can I use the front auxiliary hookups to power angle my western plow? Or do I need a diverted or flow control valve(s)....

    Got the answer! The front auxiliary hooks work the power angle on the plow with no flow control needed. The angle works faster than a normal set up, but still works great. Only modification needed was adapting the fittings

    A flow restrictor of some sort is helpful. I use automotive brake hoses. The small line size does the job perfectly.

    Did you use steel braided brake hoses or or regular rubber brake hose?

    Stainless braided would not have a black rubber coating. I'm not sure about after market hoses but OE rubber brake hoses are not compatible with mineral oil based fluids. It will destroy the rubber. I work in brake development and have seen the results of people who put motor oil, trans fluid, power steering fluid, etc in the master cylinder reservoir, several thousands $ . It would be best to have napa or other company make you a set small diameter hydraulic hoses or run just run it through some brake pipe

    Here's a pic. I got them made at our local tractor dealer and explained what they were for. I'm going to look at them tonight again. Thanks for the advice though!!

    If you had them made at your dealer they are hydraulic house rated for the right fluid their is probably a steel braid in the rubber. Which you can not see
