 Hydraulic Top Link

Is there anywhere one can buy a hydraulic top link with hoses, without having to fabricate it? I have been reading some of the boards, and it appears as though people have had to weld the end pieces onto hydraulic cylinders they purchase at TSC and other such stores. I have a Boomer with two ports to the rear that I want to plug in a top link so as to make better use of my box blade. Thanks in advance.

This is somewhat unrelated to the fabrication question, but something I don't guite understand. How do you fill and pressurize the hydraulic cylinder and hoses after fabrication?

 Hydraulic Top Link

If you search the web using "hydraulic cylinder" you will find several places that sell hydraulic toplinks. Green Manufacturing in toledo, Bailey(Chief cylinders) hydraulics, Worksaver, etc. However,these are all for Cat II hitches and they may have trouble fitting on your tractor side if you have cat 1. Its not that tough to just buy a cylinder and have the welding done. you will probably still be money ahead. I had a ball end welded to the rod end of my cylinder and had a piece welded that is sort of a universal at the tractor side similar to the design used by the Chief hydraulic toplink. Remember, however you fashion your link, design it for both compression and tension loads. The hoses are just basic plumbing, except for the quick connects that should be used to hook to the tractor. To answer Terry's question. After you hook up the hoses and cylinder - tight fittings! Just cycle the hydraulic fluid through it several times and the reservoir in the tractor transmission will act as a bleeder for the air.

Greg, you can get a hydraulic top link complete with hoses, couplers, and position indicator (Model HTL-1) from Bubco in Lodi, California for about $300 as far as I know. See web site below and send for information package as the web site doesn't list the individual things you can get.

I used Gannon cylinders for my toplink and sidelink on my 4700. They come completely assembled and fit perfectly. You just have to make up the correct length hoses.

Sounds like there are plenty solutions. One not mentioned is that sleeves for sizing CATII loops to CATI pins are available. Good idea to remember to check the hydraulic oil level after charging a new cylinder.

Sooner or later you will endup purchasing a hydraulic toplink with a Double Piloted Check Valve.
