    Default John Deere 850 utility tractor manual to power steering conversion

    Would like to convert to power steering with a torque generator but not sure which one is sized for the 4WD with a front loader. Can anyone give me some information on this? Thanks

    The Eaton web site has a downloadable Excel spread sheet calculator that may help you in that department.
    It's way over my head.

    Thanks Oldtink

    I have looked at that and it is confusing. I thought maybe someone has done this very conversion and could help me with Eaton part numbers. Darrel

    Could not agree more. Does your 950 have it?

    Yea Barry,

    I priced a kit from JPS but would rather do it myself if I knew what generator to buy. Thanks

    Rock,

    Could you tell me what the power steering consist of? Is it a hydraulic torque generator and/or what is the brand and model? I am not familiar with JD's set-up.

    There is a used kit on ebay for $1400.
    If you go to HoyeTractor.com and search "Power Steering" they have a kit that is very similar to the one that John Deere used to have for these tractors.
