    Finally put together a this to check pressures

    I used a Tee between two quick couplers. I can either just connect to a remote, or "tee" into something. The only reason for the 90 bend in the hose at the tee is Surplus Center had this hose for 1/3 the price of a std hose the same length. It took one more adapter to make it work. I just can...

    Hydrualic Toplink Holder

    I bought my toplink from Fite Right Hydraulics. At 25 lbs a bungie cord would not cut it for a holder. So I made my own. More bought it than made it. The handle/holder is the same as used on my original toplink. I bought it from the dealer along with the two spring pins that hold it in place...

    After adding the third function to my JD 640 SL loader it had SIX quick couplers to deal with when removing/attaching the loader. I decided to "bite the bullet" and change to a MultiCoupler. The hardest part was paying $500 for the MultiCoupler, then $50 for adapters. My 640 hoses were JIC...

    Semi mounted vs 3pt for 8' rotary mower

    There will be one at auction next week. 8' wide was on a JD 4020 Ag tractor. Anyone have any experience with these? I know I would have to adapt it to my JD 6415 MFWD. Tractor size and power should not be a problem if a JD 4020 could handle it.
