I use a hydraulic top link when using a slip scoop or box blade. It's the cat's meow for these implements and you will wonder how you got along without one once you have one.

One must be careful though with a box blade with rippers as one can puncture tires with the rippers if not paying attention.

If you buy one, be certain to get one with pilot operated check valves if you wish it to remain in position during use.

"pilot operated check valves" That's a new one on me. Is that built into the cylinder or added in the line? Did a short Google search. and just got confused. I'll research some more once I have the time to do so. I of course understand how a check valve works on a well. But in Hydraulics the flow has to go both ways.
I guess the pilot operated check valve will add to the cost of a cylinder. Double the cost or what?

The check valves are mounted externally on the cylinder as part of the unit.

I bought mine two or three years ago. IIRC, I paid a about $275 for the top link assembly and an optional hose/connection kit.
