    What is everyone's second favorite Top hydraulic link option?

    I've been doing several hours worth of research looking for a hydraulic top link for my 2032r (possibly top n tilt if price is right) and everything keeps pointing me back to the Fit Rite hydraulics options. I can't seem to actually find anything else. I'd love a fit rite kit, and would equally love to support a forum vendor, but the lead time of 20 weeks to get the kit is a pretty much a deal breaker for me. I'd order a fit rite kit right now if the lead time was within the month, but no such luck.


    Any other options?

    I received my hydraulic top link cylinder from my dealer. I think I paid 190$ and another 40$ for custom hose's from a local hydraulic supply. Agri Supply has a cat 1 cylinder for 100$. Don't know how much variation in quality a hydraulic cylinder can have. Maybe I would be more likely to shop premium if it was a loader cylinder or something I would work hard, but a top link doesn't get worked much in comparison to a loader cylinder. At least in my case.

    The one my dealer got for me was not through JD. He bought mine from the same place he got one for his 790. Don't know where he got it. The Agri Supply cat 1 cylinder- just Google Agri Supply hydraulic top link and its really easy to find from there.

    I found the agri supply one. I don't have an agri supply in my area so I checked tractor supply and orscheln's websites and neither sell hydraulic top links to my surprise. Guess I may have to have one shipped.

    i used the Agri Supply $99 top cylinder and a $69 CWA side link from Amazon. nothing wrong with them other than you may/will need to cut/weld the ends to fit your needs. that’s the benefit of buying from FITRITE. his fit.

    i will post a thread on mine soon. not quite finished with my frankenstein project.

    Our local farm/home store stocks hydraulic top links for cat 1 and 2 tractors but they will not even order side links. I assume they don't have a vendor to supply them at a price they can move inventory of the shelves quick enough. They didn't say that but lead me to assume it. I contacted fit rite around Christmas of 2016 and inquired about ordering a top link, I don't remember the wait time but it was months..... No thanks. I will say this, the fit rite top links looked to be of better quality and was about 60$ cheaper if I am remembering correctly than what is being stocked on the shelves locally. Personally, I completely agree about ordering a product and waiting that kind of time frame for it, few products are that good IMO. A quick Google search yields all kinds of top links, I would rather buy a cheap top link every 3 or 4 years that I can quickly get my hands on than wait 6 months for one of better quality. Perhaps order the fit rite setup then purchase the cheapest top link you can find online to use until your fit rite order is processed? One of my biggest thoughts about Fit Rite at the time I inquired about ordering..... If it's going to take months to recieve the product to begin with what the heck will I do IF I recieve something that leaks/breaks or has problems of any kind? Wait for a replacement? If I wasn't mad due to the wait time for the product to begin with, waiting weeks/months for a replacement product would push me right off the cliff in a big way.

    Do you mind sharing the price and what you're getting for the price? I didn't see any pricing info on their website.
