I know this is an old thread but I remember several threads where people talked about how difficult it is to push together the quick disconnects. As mentioned earlier, i made my auxiliary PTO be one male and one female connector. So I always cycle the lever then disconnect and finally connect the two implement hoses together. I would still usually have to bungee the lever open to connect. Well, one big plus with adding the additional hydraulic outlets is that they are all controlled by the joy stick (one pair with the button pushed in). Now, i just turn the key part way on to energize the controls and use one hand on the joystick and the other on the connector and they easily slide together. If I do not use the joystick, I can not usually get them together even with two hands. It is actually one of the nicer benefits of the additional circuits.
