300 loader hydraulic question

I am getting close to the time when I will have to put the loader on the 300 to plow snow. I had the loader on my H the past two seasons and it worked fine with one hose going to each side of the belly pump. The 300 has three hydraulic levers of which two are in use for the fast hitch so I am planning to hook the loader to the 3rd valve. I know from the manual how to set the valve for single or double acting cylinders and will check on the valve prior to hookup since the current setup on the loader is for single action. I am wondering if I can put a pipe tee and two couplers on the pressure line and run two hoses from the one line and whether it will cause any problem that the hoses will be of unequal lengths. I am thinking that because both hoses will be full of oil the length should not matter but I am not sure if I have my head on straight. Any advice will be much appreciated.

My loader is single acting like yours. The line goes from the valve to a T on one cylinder and then around to the other cylinder. Works just fine. I guess I should say it works as well as an old pipe loader can work - they are like driving with a jungle gym bolted to your tractor.

No issue Zach, I would use one coupler and a T going to both cylinders (saves one coupler). Unless the hoses are much different in length 5 to 0ne ratio, or different diameters, or have several fittings and couplers in them different from side to side, there will be on issue at all. In a closed hydraulic system pressure is equal in all locations. Jim

Great, thank you very much. The length difference will probably be a matter of 4 feet and 6 feet, or 3 and 5. I like the idea about just using one coupler, I already have one so it'll save buying another.
