Good morning, I m currently in the process of putting my older 245 back to work. The issue I m having is I wanna run a hay cutter out back that needs one remote. I attached pictures that show what I currently have, there s a lever on the part that s mounted in front of the seat. I just need to know how to operate this system. I appreciate all the help.

I am not an expert on this system but I think it works like this. In pic 1 the small metal shaft sticking up rotates either forward or back to divert hydraulics to the valve on the fender in pic 3. Your valve is missing the lever that you actuate to pressurize the remotes. Get or make a lever and you may be ready to go. If you have to replace the valve(likely) you may be miles ahead. Before I would use it I would drain some hydraulic fluid to see if it is contaminated. I think it takes 9 gallons to refill. It calls for Permatran or equivalent. Ensure the 3PH works before trying to use the remotes. When you use the remotes the 3PH doesn't work and vice versa. Hope this helps.

That is awesome, thank you for the help. Now another question, my hay cutter only has 1 hyd line, which port does it plug into?

Again, not an expert on this setup. If your valve is working, along with the pump, then plug it into either remote and activate, it should work. You may have to experiment with putting your hose in either remote and see what works best. That's the way we've used it on a 255 with factory remotes and a single acting cylinder on a disc mower.
