Hi. Looking for info on adding auxiliary hydraulics to a WD45. It has 3pt that works at present. So , pump is there and working. What is best way to plumb pressure line, return line, what kind of controller would be appropriate?

Any pics on a current setup would be great.
Would like to use it to cut hay with my haybine.

And is this a dumb idea? Should I upgrade to a different tractor altogether?

3/8" hose is plenty big and will take higher pressure.

If you do get it plumbed, you'll have to have an AC hydraulic cylinder to put on your hyaline as the older ACs were high pressure low volume. Try to use your WD-45 with the cylinder that is on your hyaline and you'll burst some hoses etc.

1/2" hydraulic hose is good for 3500 psi. A wd45 should be 3150. Any cylinder should take 3500. I use one off of a fatally m on mine. Works fine though a 4" cylinder is a tad slow lifting.

Our JD crimper 9 1/2 " has its own one way cylinder. Real small. Both our newer tractors have 3000 psi. Think you just need to plug it in. If your cutter goes down on its own and just floats. Take the other hose off. Will need to look in book to see how to have a neutral. Unless yours is set that way. I fill my hyd plum full with cylinders down. Use modern hyd oil. Not aw 46 cheap oil.

My grandpa has had one for many years. Uses a closed Center 2-way valve mounted on the left fender.For return line they simply unscrewed the fitting the dipstick for the Hydraulics goes into Put a t in it and screwed it back in.For pressure line you plug the Hose into the rear remote coupling.Then all you have to do Is put the hydraulic control lever for the tractor in the up position leave it that way. Downside is you cannot use this configuration in conjunction with your three point.

Today's Featured Article - Bad Vibes - by Curtis Von Fange. One of the strangest ways to communicate with our tractor is to ask it how it feels. "Ask it how it feels," you say? Yup, ask it how it feels. Now, as with the other articles in this series one has to be able to hear what 'ole blue' is trying to say in response. The nice thing about our old iron friends is that they are usually quite consistent in their response, rather unlike some people I know who might change what they say due to the weather or other mitigating circumstances. But since t ... [Read Article]
