Jay: got a Cub Cadet i put a kwik way loader on. i used a piece of 8" square tubing aproximate 30"long. welded in end plates and tapped it for the suction and return fittings. welded in a 2" nipple that takes a vented truck screw on fuel cap. mounted it on brackets behind the seat. holds aproximately 5 gallons of hyd oil. seems like it has enough volumn so as not to overheat the oil and also acts as conterbalance weight. weighs a little over 100# full.

Cool idea buster kills two birds with one stone. My Kwik-Way is in the loader frame, but if you have to add something I like buster's idea. Just keep it high enough not to interfer with impliment mounting.

Thanks for the idea Buster...Mine is temp. located on the front of the tractor...Ill have to post a pic of it later today. Im in the process of replacing the pump...I should have that done before the snow flys. Then the reservoir needs to go elsewhere...Is there any rule as to how much fluid one should use?
