The good news. My girlfriend bought me the best 40th b'day/Xmas present ever. A Woodmaxx 62" flail mower with hydraulic side shift that should make short work of the lawn at our house.
The better news. It will be arriving in a couple days.
The bad news. I have no idea what type of hydraulic lines and fittings I need to to connect my tractor's hydraulics to the mower for the side shift operation.
I have next to no experience with hydraulic fittings aside from connecting and disconnecting them off my loader and backhoe so please bear with any of my incompetence. I have a 3025e that I purchased this year. I got the quick park option that allows for removal of the loader and adds coupling for removal of the hydraulic lines. I plan on running the the mower hydraulics off the loader joystick.
The mower has 1/2-14 NPTF threads, I assume they're male ends. The couplings for the hydraulic fittings for the loader on my tractor appear to be the same as was on my 1023e, but I don't know with certainty. The fittings on the loader end of the line are marked NV14-38 saef 14-E0. I'm including some pics of them below as well.
It would be greatly appreciated if somebody can tell me what size/type of female fittings would be needed to hook up the hydraulic lines to my loader joystick control. I also need some recommendations on where to purchase the lines from. I would need 2 lines about 6' long with the corresponding 1/2-14 NPTF threads to hook up on the mower side.
