Need some help/info on my 80T (Trail type) mower I am working on. First, the on board lift cable is no longer available from AGCO and I need to have one made. To do this, I need to know the size of the cable used and its overall length and any other info I might need to have one made, or does anyone have one for sale. Second, the mower did not come with a hydraulic cylinder, so I need to know what size cylinder (bore, stroke, length) that I should use on this mower.

Thanks in advance for any help/info given!

You need the standard 8" stroke cylinder.As far as the cable just go to Tractor Supply and match it up and I like to have the cable short enough to add a piece of chain on the end to give a quick easy adjustment.

Thanks for the reply! I've got a 3"x8" cylinder, so that will work. However, I don't have any of the cable to match up. Do you know what size/diameter it might be? Thanks.

I'm going to guess it was 3/8" cable. Take one of your cast iron pulleys with you and use it to size the cable.

Bob B: Thanks for the info and the suggestion. Didn't think of using the pulleys as a guide for cable size! Good thought!
