    Comparison Re: Mahindra Max25 or Max 26

    Re: 20 series with third function FEL

    Two different systems, no head start. If you do not yet have the tractor, have the dealer install the hydraulics. It's a piece of cake for them, but may challenge someone that has never messed with...

    Re: 20 series with third function FEL

    For the 20 series, the front 3rd function is part number BZ00452. The dual remote for the rear for the 20 series is part number RMK2-20. Hopefully Branson will not figure out that they are about...

    Re: 20 series with third function FEL

    I do not have any pictures handy at the moment, but I'll try to remember to snap a couple next time I see one so equipped. We sell a lot of grapples and 4-n-1 buckets, hence the need to stock all...

    Re: 20 series with third function FEL

    I think the factory diverter lists for about $700 complete. The rear remotes are priced about the same for the double spool remote kit. I'm being a little vague since it depends on your dealer and...

    Re: 20 series with third function FEL

    Re: Tier 4 strategy for the 5220R?

    I agree, but your idea has merit, since most folks will run an HST at higher rpms and shuttles at lower rpms. People with shuttles just need to drop a gear or two and run the engines up a bit in the...
  98. Backhoe Re: BH76 Backhoe Removal from 20 Series (4520)

    I used high pressure fittings and a 5000 psi needle valve...then thought of the real application, it could probably be made of schedule 40 plastic and a ball valve!
  99. Backhoe Re: BH76 Backhoe Removal from 20 Series (4520)

    Exactly. I have a skid-steer and change implements a lot and it is hot here in CA. I made a device to couple the ends of the disconnected implement together that has a bleed off valve between two...

    Re: PTO / 3 point Isue

    2 different issues I think. There is a piston, basically under the seat, that drives the rockshaft to raise/lower the implement. There is also a control that tells the hydraulics to keep the three...
