    Switching hydros on 260 backhoe

    Wanting to know if anyone has attempted to switch the hydros on the back hoe from the John Deere style to komatsu style. Pretty tough to switch after be used to running one or the other.

    I did. Didn't work well, so I switched back. The boom valve is different than the others so to do a proper switch, you would need to also switch the boom spool valve.

    Deere is "ISO" Cat is "SAE". I vastly prefer SAE (Cat) controls but after a couple hours you should be able to use either.
