Mind sharing the sizes used? I am new to hydraulics, and the different threads and connectors are crazy to me.


I had my local hydraulics place make me a 6 1/2 inch hose. It JUST was able to make the turn. The fittings he uses are quite large and I was nervous but it turned with no noticeable kinking. The fittings on the hose ends are 9/16-18 females with a 37degree bevel to mate to the male 90's that fit into the diverter.

Thats what I was afraid of... no hydraulics places near me. Hmm. back to the drawing board. I may just have to scrap the whole diverter valve altogether. seems so silly for just lack of a fitting.

Pretty doesn't make it work. You will be happy with having the diverting valve for sure! I have a snow blower for the front of my loboy and adding the 3 point will allow me to run a back blade with the blower allowing me to back up to my garage doors, drop the rear blade to drag forward, back up and blow out. Right now I have to shovel 15 feet away of both my house garage and pole barn to get access to blow it out. Along with living on a busy road makes it tough to clean the very end of my drive out because of waiting on traffic and crossing my fingers I don't throw a stone through someones window on the pass. First world problems right!! :D

This is my first tractor and I'm seeing a whole new world of capabilities by having this 3 point! Good Luck!

You are correct... as long as it works, doesnt matter what it looks like.

I was disappointed that I would have to cut cross-members to install the dual brakes into my cub with single brakes
