    3-Point Hitch Length(s) of stock top link cylinder on my Ford 1910??

    Look at the following link. Get the asked for dimension and use that length as the mid point of your adjustment. Does not matter manual or hydraulic. https://www.fitritehydraulics.com/toplink.html

    3 Point Land Leveler

    Unless he has a skid steer, I would not recommend using one of these with a loader mount on any utility tractor under 120hp and even then would prefer using the 3pt. JMO. :)

    Rear Remotes for Kubota with Backhoe and 3rd Function

    Lots of people say that there is no need for the float feature on rear remotes. You will find that most of those people have either electric valves (no float feature available) or have cylinders with check valves, because of the electric valves or just poor quality valves in general. You will...

    YT359c top link!

    You would be better off with 2 1/2" dia cylinders and 1 1/2" dia rods IMO. That is what I recommend for your model, similar to those pictured. If you are not using Pat's quick hitch, then you want something with a working length close to 20"-29" for a top link. Side link should be built to...

    Rear Remotes + 3rd Function Option

    So add a double diverter. This takes care of the additional sets of couplers that you need. A triple diverter is pictured on the tractor. Controls for the diverters would be on the factory rear remote lever. You would be able to control 3 separate functions without ever taking your hand from the...

    Rear Remotes + 3rd Function Option

    Maybe get both of the factory rear remotes and then go with some diverters if you decide that you need more sets of couplers. I have one tractor with one factory rear remote with a triple diverter and my larger tractor has 3 factory rear remotes with a double diverter.

    Rear Remotes + 3rd Function Option

    When you disconnect a hydraulic cylinder at the quick couplers, that cylinder is locked in place. You just need to be sure that the hoses are tied up and out of the way. Not only do the electric valves typically need some flow control, but these electric valves are known to have internal...

    Bending my box blade hitch, please help!

    I agree with Piston. Adjust the sway links so that the Pat's QH ends are centered on the pins. This will then allow for some side-side movement.

    What Length Of Hydraulic Top-Link For MT357

    You guys realize that Pat's quick hitch adds 3 3/4" to the length of the draft arms, right? So anything that you might be using for your std length draft arms-std 3pt hitch will not work very well if at all for the OP's circumstances. He should be looking for something a few inches longer than...

    3650P HST with 3h and broken HST?

    Adding euro three point hooks

    Yes, 2.2 for the cat 1-2 & cat 2 hooks While the top link takes a 2" ball, they only offer a full 2" width either in a 1" or 3/4" pin size. So if you have a narrow (under 2") cat 1 top link mount on an implement, the ball needs to be machined down for width. This is my supplier. Top Link...

    This is what the 3 most common sizes start out like. Then you cut off the existing ball swivel on either the fixed draft arm or on an extendable end.

    eHydrostatic Transmission

    According to JD literature, the 4066R loses about 14HP to the PTO. But then even the shuttle loses about 13hp to the PTO.

    Skid Steer or CUT for Road Maintenance?

    I guess what I'm thinking is that if you were to get a rear blade that can reach over 4 feet from the edge of the tractor, would it not be waaaay faster to just drive along pulling the ditch clean and then scooping up all of that material and disposing of it as you prefer? :unsure: Just a thought.

    Yes, the power beyond port at the loader valve feeds the rear remote valves.

    L3800 adding a remote?

    I'm fairly sure that Kubota no longer offers any rear remotes for your model. None of the 3rd party suppliers have the valves all nice and tucked away like the factory sets usually are.

    Size of hydraulic side link for Kubota B2601?

    That is the same as what I recommend. So at least your top link will have the optimum working range. (y) You will still need to grind down the tractor end ball swivel width. Std cat 1 ends are 1 3/4" wide. The B series tractors take a 1 9/16" wide ball swivel. Not that big of a deal, but it...

    Size of hydraulic side link for Kubota B2601?

    A 4" stroke is perfect if the unit is built right and provides an equal amount of tilt angle to both sides and has the correct angles for the clevises on each end.

    Should limited hyd. top link range be biased to longer or shorter?

    Your 3pt hitch will always float up unless in the fully raised position. Having the position control lever in the fully lowered position allows the hitch to go as low as it can is all. All the slot does is allow the mower to rock forward or backwards. How much depends on how you have the top...

    Should limited hyd. top link range be biased to longer or shorter?

    The issue with basing your operating range on the OEM manual top link is that about 50% of the top links provided by the OEM are WRONG.

    New Kioti CK2620SE

    Std cat 1 ball swivels are 1 3/4" wide. The ball swivels that Kioti uses on that model are only like 1 1/2" wide. A 1 3/4" wide ball swivel does not fit into the top link mount on the tractor.
  62. MtnViewRanch

    New Kioti CK2620SE

    Look at this link. Get the asked for pin-pin dimension. That dimension should be very close to what the top link is when halfway extended. That 11" stroke is going to be waaaaay long for your application. Keep in mind that you also will need to grind down the base-tractor end for width.

    What size hydraulic hose for 7320 rear remote?

    implement on rear remote dropping

    SCUT tilt hydraulic link?

    It's a little more difficult when the proper cylinder to be used is an odd stroke such as a 3",5", 7", 9", or 11" stroke. Yes it can be done with the even stroke lengths readily available, but that does not always get the optimum working length desired. It's not that big of a deal when the...

    SCUT tilt hydraulic link?

    I am guessing that Fit Rite will be the only place to get one? And even then I do not have the dimensions for it, you would need to get the required dimensions so that I can build it to fit right. If you would like to proceed, please fill out the contact page on the Fit Rite Hydraulics website.

    Valve Stems on my New Tractor

    I don't think that for what Eddie does it will make much difference. I know that I have operated my tractor with the same amount of air at 100* & at 8*. Just a little softer at 8*. But then I'm not doing the same tasks at those extremes either. YMMV.

    Tilt cylinder on Top and Tilt leaking down with use

    In the 12 years that I have been selling Bucher valves, not a single leak down issue that I have been made aware of. Bucher valves can be purchased from me, or directly from my supplier. You would need 17 GPM valves for your application.

    Back dragging: how aggressive?

    Tilt cylinder on Top and Tilt leaking down with use

    It's only "slick" if you do not have or use the float feature with your T&T cylinders. Most people that make use of the float feature with their T&T cylinders would not be without it, so there are other work arounds. For those people that do not have or make use of the float feature, it is...
