I'm wondering if there is a general consensus on the best brand of hydraulic couplers to use on our tractors. Most of those that came on mine are Faster 2NV series with a few others (Holmbery?) mixed in for the 3rd function on the bucket. The bucket connections are particularly stubborn if there is even the slightest bit of residual pressure in the lines. I typically turn the engine off, exercise the loader joystick and activate the third function toggle several times before attempting the connection. Still, unless the machine has been sitting for several hours, it is a real bear to get them on or off.
Are there any couplers I could replace them with that are easier to work with? The lines are 1/4" out to the bucket if it makes a difference.
