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
