Ok, I'm almost finished with adapting a three point hitch post driver to my 853, I used an 8 lug trailer hub for the side to side leveling (pics later). I have a new 12" hyd. cylinder and thought it could be used to tilt the post driver side to side. Mounting shouldn't be difficult but the plumbing might?. Since I have constant flow to the driver, how would I tap in with a two way control valve to operate the tilting cylinder??.
All suggestions appreciated. Please keep is simple

I had a flyer from www.messick.com in PA that carries a remote splitter or divider. It's pretty slick--there are two "splitters" or "dividers" that are essentially a T controlled by a two-way solenoid on each. Each splitter T connects to the aux. hyd. flat face remote. What you then have is two flat-face connectors to chose from. (Connect the other T to the other aux. remote for a complete set). They are about $345 for the set if I recall (I tossed it out the other day). To switch back and forth between the remotes you need a 12v power and a switch (unless that is included--I dunno). This setup would be great for a 6-way dozer blade or whatever!

Don't forget to check the pressure rating!!! many are only 300 psi not 3000psi.
www.surpluscenter.com would have some electric over hydraulic valves that would work to, unsure of what the cost would be.
Configuration would depend on if you want to do one function then the other, or one function WHILE doing the other.

Thanks, I'll check that. I even though about those 12V electric trailer jacks but they are kinda big?.
