    Deere uses the oddest metals sometimes

    While the lift link bottom ends are cast iron, the SSQA foot levers are darn near tool steel. They ring like a fine anvil when you tap them with a hammer.

    I'm not sure why some attachments are uploading sideways lately.

    Just need to get some roll pins for the cylinder pins and it's ready for reassembly.

    I am not going to mention how nice those welds look and take this thread off topic, I'm just not going to do it.

    Thanks for being so worried about keeping this one on topic, Keith. Are you feeling ok?

    This is the cylinder I used btw: 1.5x6x0.75 HYFLOW CONTROLS DA HYDRAULIC CYLINDER

    I hope to be headed up North this weekend and would like to get some progress on the hydraulics when I'm there.

    This is the latching mechanism for my Skid Steer Quick Attach brackets on my loader. All these levers do (the top part is minimally stressed - even with 400# construction workers standing on them) is lift and lower the latching pins (those being high carbon wouldn't surprise me at all!) via spring loaded linkages.



    But they made them out of 1.5" thick high strength steel that has a lovely ring to it when you ping it with a hammer - and I'm ok with that!

    Once it's on the tractor and everything's back in it, I'll post pics of the plumbing and cylinder in place.

    I'll have to get off to hook/unhook the grapple hydraulics, but I won't ever scratch my knuckles on the hose protector zip ties ever again.

    Since these are all pretty much standardized on how they're made, the cylinder was a direct fit and I just needed to find a way to integrate it where it was out of harms way and didn't affect the levers (or I would've had to make new ones). When I first bought the machine, I though they should've put tabs where I did and thought maybe I could make something work in there. When I saw these cylinders were $50, I measured the distances and discovered it was going to be a good fit and decided to get one and make it part of my hydraulics improvements for the off-season.

    I've got some re-doing on the two spool valve out back I use for my stump grinder, the tilt cylinder, the diverter to go between top and tilt, and I need to hard plumb all those into the PBY loop too. My intention is to get that all handled while the ground's too soggy to drive on.

    Those look just like the SSQA adapters on my H180 loader for my 4066R. Being able to use skid loader attachments increases my versatility tremendously.
