    Frontier 60" on 1025r - hydraulic angle?

    I just bought a 1025r with the 60" frontier loader mounted plow. I am being told the hydraulic angling isn't recommended w/ the power beyond (backhoe hydraulics). Deere is working on an auxiliary hydraulic kit that pipes to the boom arms....but, not available yet. Even as is the kit for hydraulic angling hoses are currently to short to run to mid valve.

    Has anyone ran into this issue?

    You can't use the Power Beyond as is directly. You need another controlled port. Or you can install a diverter and divert the curl control on your existing SCV to the angle function.

    Many of us have diverters installed. I chose to use the setup that Artillian sells but there are others too.

    That combo will work! I believe WR Long makes a diverter kit for these machines too. I don't know what their pricing looks like.

    Thanks Jim. I'm a bit of a newbie in terms of hydraulics. I would've thought I could just connect the angle lines to the existing bucket curl connections. Fluid in fluid out not sure why it matters what way the attachment moves.

    '

    Yes, that is possible, but quite often the cylinders will bleed down some and you wouldn't be able to adjust them. Some guys have strapped the cylinder closed to eliminate that issue.

    Yup. You can do that. It's what I did for 2 winters.

    But I found that it is nice to be able to tweak the curl to adjust the snow blade a little as I'm plowing. With a diverter doing that is no issue at all If you swap hoses like you mention, you have to shut everything down, move hoses. adjust, shut everything down again, swap hoses back again.... It's enough of a chore that you don't want to have to do it. The diverter just makes life easier.

    Thanks for the info! Angle kit is $650 and the diverter is another $700. I think I'll get my ass off the seat to angle it manually!

    JD Parts is showing the angle kit as $675. As you can see below, the Angle Kit is just two single acting cylinders and a couple hoses. I'll bet you could put together your own kit for way less than $675. The description on those cylinders is 1.75 x 1.5 x 6.0.

    Want to hear something even crazier? JD Parts shows the price of those cylinders as $143. That means JD is charging $389 for two hoses, fittings and a few pieces of hardware.
