    Valves and mount, as well as T&T are available. You will need to get a few hoses and fittings to get plumbed into your hydraulic system and you're all set.

    Fill out the contact page on my website and I can get you a total cost for what I can provide for your application.

Only thing I can think of is rough grading "new" gravel/dirt which could be done with FEL. Maybe there isn't a "need" at this point? Any other "common" implements where an adjust-from-seat top link would be useful?

    Didn't know valves weren't included, but not a big surprise. Concern would be placement of valve(s) so that BH not affected. Alas, no TTWT videos for me to follow.

    Looked at pics of the 1026r install on Fit Rite site. Wish I had a better visualization of the seat area and the actual valve positions. Seems like the tool box was removed.

    To be honest, am a bit spooked about the install. Pat Braden, the Fit Rite poster, seemed to know his way around his tractor; me, not so much. So if there's problems, I'm more likely to figure there's been a "stupid user error" rather than something needing to be tweaked by Brian. Note there's zero experience here with the 3pt; only memories of the old Sears one. But since ground's been broken with the 1026r install and probably 1025r ones I don't know about, maybe would not be so bad since I think they're similar. Depends how much tolerance Brian would have for the barrage of simplistic questions. ("I'm supposed to connect this whachamacallit to what?" "What does it look like?" "Where's that?" "Are we there yet?")

    Guess the key thing for me now is to come up with a killer reason to get a box blade. No question that I'd want the TnT for that. Only task that I can think of that would be better with BB than FEL/leveler would be a drainage ditch on side of driveway. Any thoughts?

    For what? Oh Tim, I'd be in a much better place if you'd already blazed the trail. Haven't seen you with a BB. If don't have, any reason other than $$?

    As always, thanks for the hand holding.

    Actually, everything has been simplified quite a bit since Pat Braden's was done. Fill out the contact page, pretty sure we can get this done without to much pain, other than the cost of everything.

    Having no real idea of what you actually need done around your place. But you need to keep in mind that no single implement is the best at multiple tasks. So if any single implement is going to be used for different types of jobs, there is always some kind of compromise. IMO when it's time to get a specific implement for a certain job is when that job has to be done over and over again, such as a driveway.

    Contact me and let's see if this is a doable project for you.

    Kind of feel that I've found a really neat solution ... that's looking for a problem to be solved. That is, can I justify the TnT $$ for just the leveler? Thought that might be the case at first, but doesn't sound like it so far. Don't want to waste your time by contacting you if I'm not serious.

    Your right, please do not look for reasons to make the expense justified. But at least you are aware of this type of solution if-when the occasion arises.

    have you researched any further into this Diana? I got to mess with one today and man was it nice. I actually Used a bionic blade. And tilting it was still a huge help.
    I see where I could use it most times I get on my 1025 tlb. For just about any implement. Just like DS said. Especially if you use a BB.
    This is something I wouldn’t mind purchasing soon

    After seeing more posts about land planes, started another thread in Hydraulics. Summary: lot of time spent just learning basic hydraulics then ordered FitRight TnT.

    Valves have arrived (unexpectedly Heavy ), but won't attempt mods until 100+ heat is over for the season. Want to do this before installing my newly arrived wheel weights. Actual TnT hydraulics not expected until around Thanksgiving.
