    Hey guys I am getting ready to start a project. I am converting a 7.5 meyer plow to a skid loader mount. Where r u guys getting your crossover relief valves? And also is there any need to put some sort of restrictor on the hydraulic lines when connected to a skid loader? Thanks

    Be careful of restrictor's after the cross-over relief valve. Put them on at the cylinder and you may as well of not put on a cross-over valve because the cylinder reaction will be slowed by the restrictor. Remember, when you strike an object you want the oil dumping out of the cylinder as fast as possible. At the quick coupler going to the skid steer would be better.

    That makes sense now that I think about it....thanks! I'm glad we took our restrictors out all together. Even after drilling them out, they still "restricted" flow more than we liked.
