I was just looking at the hyd. top link at http://www.ccmachinery.com/TNT.htm
Is this the one you have?
I plan on getting one for myself. I assumed that you controled it by a seperat valve. Or is there a built in valve?
No I dont have that setup , but I have a sererate valve that I use for plow swing. Id just T into that one. Of cource not use them both at once.LOL
Thanks for the pic. It really helps, wish the companys would have a section where the customers could post a few pics of their products.
Is your link the one I was asking about from http://www.ccmachinery.com/TNT.htm
Or is it another company? I like the gauge on it.
Thanks to all. Sorry for taking so long to get back on here, had a busy day at church yesterday.
Thanks for the pic, that is what I need to do.
My machine has built in hydraulic hook ups and remotes. Can't help you on the aftermarket hook ups.
I didn't get the CCM top link, I think mine is made by Tysco. It doesn't have the valve or position indicator like 3RRL 's fancy one. After looking around, I don't think there is a significant price difference between the two,( I found this out after I bought mine). I'm not pushing or bashing any particular brand, but even though my Tysco cylinder works fine I would go with the CCM cylinder if I had to do it over again. Seems like you get more for the money.
Dancce(TBN name) from Creek County Equipment Company in Depew, Oklahoma showed me a device that made one remote valve into two. It hooked up electrically and you could put a switch on the lever to switch remotes. Looked to be a good idea. I can't remember the price, I think it was something like $250, but don't hold me to it. It was alot cheaper than adding another hyd. line. I got a quote for around $1400 to have that done.

Allan and Gavman,
That picture is not from the CCM link or any other company, but of my own tractor with their top link (CCM hyd cylinder) mounted on it. The level indicator gauge is one I made myself, copying theirs and others I've seen. I posted a thread on making it a while back. Just CLICK HERE to see how I made it. It was fun.
Also, I don't know enough about hydraulics to advise you whether or not you can "T" off another line. I think Mad is right by having to keep the valves in series. I do know that the guys at CCM can and will advise you on what you have to do. They will be advising me when I buy the side link tilting hydraulics from them. They also will be selling me the controls for that so they'll have to tell me how to do it anyway. But they are really good people and will help you.
