Retrofitting to touch control

Postby ScottyG » Thu Sep 09, 2004 7:45 pm

These questions have probably been asked a million times but is it possible to get a complete touch control system? How much money would I expect to pay? Is it something that I can one stop shop for or would I spend my time piecemealing something together from several salvage places? Is it even worth converting from a manual lifter to touch control?

Thanks!!

Scotty:

I am "rounding up the parts" now so when I am ready I can add the hydraulics to Granny. I am not too keen on manual lift right now, at least not for what I have planned.

I got a price for a complete hydraulic unit - around $500.00 Cdn for the whole thing.

I would give Jaime or John at JP Tractor Salvage, or Lynn or Tom at TM Tractor Parts a call or email. They probably have units in stock. David at Chown Tractor Parts might also have one in stock.

As for is it worth it? I would definitely think so, but that is yust me dos centavos :roll: :D
