I've seen videos of guys with more then one set of remotes on their 255s and i'd love to add another set to mine as only having one set is kinda limiting, but i can't figure out how they added them. Any thoughts?

A cheap option is the compact size switch valve for the top of the tranny and a suitable 2 - 3 - 4 spool manifold which I mounted on the MF 65 right fender, and ran 1/4 inch lines to quick disconnects under the 3 pt top link attach point.

There are no levers on the tranny to catch your pant leg - just a push=pull slide or a rotating shaft depending on the maker.

The system delivers under 3000 psi, and the 35/65/165 delivers about 4 gpm wide open, slow for a loader and hopeless for a wood splitter.

On the plus side, your valve bank can be 1/4 or 3/8 pipe, generally cheaper than the normal 1/2 inch ones.

Go to the AGCO parts books (http://www.agcopartsbooks.com/partsbooksn/login.aspx?region=northamerica), sign in as a guest user. Search model: 255, manufacturer: Massey Ferguson. That should get you to the parts book for your tractor. You will need your serial number. Scroll down to the Auxiliary Hydraulics and you can see what is needed for the one or two sets of remotes.

Another option might be a Fasse ISO Remote Doubler Valve, or similar. Not cheap but the other way likely won't be either. It is an electric valve that plugs into your existing remotes and gives you two sets which you switch between electrically. The implements operate from your existing lever, the valve just switches which set of remotes gets the oil. We have one we use on a JD with single set of remotes to run a MOCO. A web search for ISO Remote Doubler Vale Kits should bring up some of the options out there.

Don't know what you have now but you will need a dual control valve.
