 Best value top and tilt JD790

Okay, I'm becoming pretty convinced that a Top and Tilt would be pretty useful on a box blade. I am seeing quotes from $600 or so from third parties, to $1200+ from tractor dealers. I will soon take delivery of a JD 790.
1) What will work?
2) What have people used with good success?
3) Does the 790 FEL hydraulics allow for a pass-through to secondary hydraulics for the TNT? (I guess that's what you do?)
4) Does anyone know what length cylinders I will need with a 790?

If I get a box blade with a TNT, will I still need a tilt and swivel rear blade for grading a driveway? I guess the blade still offers swivel capability for pulling gravel out of the ditch to re-build the crown?

 Best value top and tilt JD790

tomrscott; Having the FEL and the box blade on the 4410 at the same time makes for a real handy outfit. It seems you're allways wanting to use the loader to push some soil out of the way, level it or sometning, so I'd hate to give up the use of the FEL plus the added front ballast it provides while box blading. I guess my point being that you could use the loader valves to operate a top and tilt for the box scraper and avoid buying the extra hydraulic valves you'll need to operate the FEL and the TNT at the same time. As I said earlier a TNT is a neat feature, I don't have one and have gotten along, but then too I don't do this for a living where time is money. I'm not sure what Deere offers for extra hyd. outlets on a 790, on a 4000 Ten series up to five are available. Far as cylinder requirements, I'm not familliar enough with the TNT system to give any advice, others on the board with more experience will help you out there. Have a great day. Frank.

 Best value top and tilt JD790

I guess I posted a dumb question on my road crown string. I thought the top and tilt was a feature of the box, but what I am reading this is a hydraulic option purchased in addition to the box. Is there anyway to tilt the box at an angle to achieve a nice crown?

No. You got it right. Every tractor has a manual top/tilt feature. You pay additional for an hydraulic top/tilt.

There are a couple of different ways to plumb it; my set-up uses a "power beyond" port. It is the same place I plug in the back hoe and the log splitter.

with just a box and the standard 3pt. is there a way to set up the box at an angle to cut in the crown?

Yes. One of the lower arms on the three point will have a turnbuckle with a lock that will lower or raise that arm in relation to the other.

rpichelli: Please don't feel bad about asking "Dumb Questions". We all had to start from zero knowledge on things at one time or another, so we've all asked "Dumb Questions" too. Tractor point has allways had a good cross section of opinions on lots of different things, I like green, you like orange, someone else likes blue, that really doesn't matter we're just here to help one another in a common intrest. I nor anyone else here will ever "Know It All", when someone claims that title it's time to get shed of them. Stay with us we'll try our best and sometime we'll probably ask you for advice too. Frank.

 Best value top and tilt JD790

I have seen the CCM (Carter and Carter Machinery, Tenn.) ad for a full TNT kit at $600 including two cylinders, joystick controller, and hoses. I haven't asked what shipping would cost, but shouldn't be too bad. I am guessing that's probably a pretty good deal. Does anyone have experience with these kits? Good or bad impressions? Feel free to email privately if prefer. At $600 it seems like that is well worth it. Any other good sources to recomend? I saw another one here somewhere, but they were more like $1200 I think. I am not sure why the difference.

What kind of warranty does the CNC TNT kit come with?

What would shipping be to Oregon?

And with due respect to Ironpeddler, has anyone here had any experience with these?

Thanks! I'm about to order something and would like to hear what someone thinks.
