    Help!!! - Monarch Pump Unit to Repower a Fisher

    What do you guys think about buying a Monarch 3593 complete unit to repower an early Fisher conventional (before power pak). I am thinking of mounting the unit under the hood with a heat shield to protect it, and just running hoses out to the cylinders with quick disconnects.

    Tell me what you think . . .

    Where is the cheapest place to buy a Monarch M-3593 ? Is this the right model to do what I want?

    I might just have what you need. I will check in the morning at the shop and see if it will work. If it will I can make you a good deal on the unit. I will get back to you Monday

    I did the same thing except used a Fenner pump. I used it under the hood first then when I converted to a MM1 upright /Diamond blade conversion I made it verticle and mounted it on the upright. The link on my signature shows the conversion.

    Hey Ding,
    Sorry took so long to get back to ya, busy day. Unfortunately the unit I have wont work, you need a 3X4 valve set up and mine is a 2X2 set up. I checked with my hydraulic guy and he says you wont find many like the one you need, most are for dumps and log spilter's and wont work. Manufacturer doesn't matter as long as the valving is correct.
    Good luck to ya.

    a unit like that should be about $540 new.

    The 359 is a great unit. It is what I'm running with my Old school Fisher and it is mounted under the hood. My only recommendation is to dump the rocker switch controls and install something more comfy. I ended up getting a BOSS joystick that has front loader movement. Push forward for down and pull back for up.. I'll see if I still have pics of my setup.

    Have a line on a 683 with a Forum member.

    What are the benefits/drawbacks of the 683 compared to the 3593 ?

    I know it has the internal valves instead of external.

    Is this a good model to mount under the hood?
