    New hydraulic top link

    My new hydraulic top link from Fit Rite Hydraulics arrived late last week and I installed it over the weekend. Fit and Finish are top notch. Note how well it is packed. It really helps when using the iMatch to hook up an implement as sometimes the implement needs a little top link adjustment to make the hook up.

    2nd That!

    Liking the snazzy green paint! I too add one last year and was very impressed with the whole buying experience - perfect size & perfect fit.

    Although I didn't really "need" it it makes manipulating the rotary cutter and winch a lot easier with the quick hitch. Should also prove handy when I make up a 3 pt utility box for moving wood and stones.

    On second thought I think I do "need" it!

    A good working length for your 3000 series is 19 1/2"- 27 1/2". 2" or 2 1/2"dia works. More than half of my customers go with the 2 1/2" unit.

    Wondering . . . .

    I have a 1026R without the additional set of hydraulic connections at the rear of the tractor. I'm wondering if this something a novice could do and how would I go about it? Parts and instructions?
