 Hydraulic top link

I hear everyone talking about the hydraulic top link and it seems like it would work pretty well. I don't use a lot of 3 point attachments and my 7800 does not have rear hydraulics. I am trying to figure out how much it would cost to add rear hydraulics and top link to my tractor. Would it be worth it to add them? When I bought the 7800 I didn't see a need for the rear hydraulics, but this little device might come in handy.

 Hydraulic top link

Well I just put a 3-spool valve on my B2710 and the total cost was around $500 which included the Prince SV valve, hoses, hydraulic outlet block, and couplers. You should be able to do it for slightly less depending on how many spools you want. You will save a little not needing the hydraulic outlet block but you will add a little needing two longer hoses, one to go to the front outlet block and another to union with the loader's power beyond hose. It's a pretty simple hookup despite what many people will lead you to believe.

The top link cylinder will cost around $200 configured properly with double pilot check valves. You can get this from Carter & Carter for about $175 plus shipping.

 Hydraulic top link

Does anyone make a complete hydraulic top link kit? I asked my Kubota dealer and he said they didn't carry any such thing. I would like to add a hydraulic top link to my BX1500. I can get the manifold block and I am assuming that I can get the right valve and control lever to fit in the opening in the fender, but I'm having trouble finding the actual cylinder with the appropriate ends to accomodate 3/4" pins.

Is the hydraulic top link really that great? I mean as far as the expense to what it does? I think I may just stick with the old manual screw type top link.

 Hydraulic top link

If you do any blading or scraping with the 3ph they are incredibly useful. Heck, I even use mine when bush hogging up or down hills to keep the cutter oriented correctly to the ground. Once you've used a tractor that has it you never want to go back.

 Hydraulic top link

The hydraulic top link makes a huge differance when boxblading.
Once you try one you will throw the manual screw top link away.
You can tilt the blade ahead for cutting off the high spots and tilt the box back to level in the low areas.All while on the go and never leaving the seat.
I also us mine for mowing heavy brush,I tilt the back of the cutter up ,back into the brush and lower the rear of the cutter down .This way I can mulch up heavy brush areas without scratching all the paint off my tractor.

Jarndt: Your little BX has TTLS. (Tiny top link syndrome)and I don't think there is a hydraulic cylinder out there that is short enough and thin enough to function in the space provided.

BX's use a Cat 0 size top link with Cat 1 holes. The hydraulic top links I have seen are almost too big for my 4115.

If your search is successful, it will be welcome news to a bunch of BX and GC owners out there.

 Hydraulic top link

On the JD2210, the top link is easily accessible for the seat. Just reach around and adjust, it maybe takes 30 seconds for each adjustment, compared to the nearly instant adjustment that you would get with a hydraulic top link.

If you can reach it from the seat, as with may of the sub-CUTs, I canít see that it would be worth the money. However, if it canít be adjusted from the seat, I can definitely see the convenience of having a hydraulic top link especially when using a box blade.

Depends on your property. Our property is very hilly and turning around to adjust the top link every few minutes would get old very fast. Is it time to bring up the advantages of a full Top-N-Tilt kit?
