First off I am ignorant when it comes to how hydraulics work. I’ve never became knowledgeable because my x728 with the quick hitch had 4 way movement and I assumed the 1025r would be the same. Now I can understand how the curl feature can affect how straight up the plow would stand if the curl cylinders moved towards the ground. The x728 with the quick hitch was not capable of tilting except if the spring loaded plow was overloaded.
I purchased a CTA 66” Loader mounted snowplow and I got what was called a “needle valve” with it. The plow angle hoses hook up to the curl hydraulic connections on the tractor to allow angling right and left of the plow. The needle valve is hooked up to the curl hydraulic hoses of the tractor and is used if the curl part of the tractor cylinders has allowed the plow to lean forward. Then you just open the valve and I guess the fluid would transfer to the opposite side of the cylinder moving the plow straight up again. Why would the cylinder move? Does fluid leak from one side to the other?
I have not used the plow yet and I have no idea how often this might happen. I do know that Artillian makes a front mounted hydraulics kit that I guess would then leave the curl feature hoses along. What does JD do for the hydraulic plows they make do they plug into the curl connections too?
