Hydro lifts are nice!

Recommended Posts

I just found my dad a nice 7117 with hydro lift. Tonight I hooked his tiller up and played with it for a minute. Sure beats lifting a tiller by hand. I manually lift my 38" tiller.[:0] Now my 3416H has a manual lift with a vickers hydro . Can I add a hydro lift on it or would I be best to locate a newer hydrolift chassis that needs a motor? My 16HP briggs has <5 hours on a rebuild, so I don't want to part with it!

Paul, chech out my earthmoving pics, we put the blade on the hydro lift tractor, just too hard to always be adjusting the blade by hand for 3 to 4 hours. I get real spoilled with the lift. I would suggest checking out the electric lifts for the 7000's on your 3416H.

I love the 917 with hydraulic lift, sure beats manual and is quicker too when moving snow. Now we just picked up the angle from the seat blade:). Of course its just after winter finishes. At leas I have it for next year though.
