To me, your photo looks like you are using the PTO circuit. Is that what you meant by "AUX"?

Just curious...great job either way. Congratulations!

It looks like you have a gorgeous place right on a slough or Yaquina river.

All the best,

Peter
You are correct in calling it the PTO circuit.

Nice! :cool:(y)

I didn't know there was anything special about the PT425 hydraulic quick connectors....were they an odd size or something?
Yes, they are an odd connector; Stucchi connectors, for ag use. There aren't many connectors available at the pressure and flow that the PTs use, at least at a reasonable price. Some folks have converted all of their connectors to more standard flat face connectors, but not all flat face are rated for the pressures of some of the Power-Tracs.

I believe that the part numbers are in the sticky, if you need them, and you can get them from Power-Trac, Bailey Hydraulics, and others. The 3/4" ones are Stucchi 820001022, and 820001023, "IR 34V FA NPT", make sure that you get the FA series, not the standard ones. The half inch male is 800501005. I don't have the Q/A numbers handy. My recollection is that they are 3/8ths.

All the best,

Peter
