    I have a Takehuchi TL 130 and plan on mounting a Meyer 7.5 on it what size couplings do i need to hook up the power angle and what is the best site to buy the couplings/fittings to slow flow down etc. Any help much appreciated. Thanks

    you can get them at your local dealer (cat, take, JD), or ebay has them. They are about 100 bucks. They are larger than the regular ones like on a older plow. But there is more pressure running thru them also.

    I fought this battle all of last week. I ended up having to run all around town buying different fittings to make things work. Be prepared to spend $300 if you need new hoses also.

    I bought a flow reducer with a 1/16" orifice and will probably drill it out just a hair larger. The reducers I bought thread into the SS fittings.

    Damn $300. My bobcat dealer has two hoses restrictors and couplers for $150. Is there somthing i'm missing as i'm in the process of converting one right now.

    I spent $110 at the "specialty" hydraulic shop for two hoses with the "correct" adapters which would plug into the quick disconnects and two 1/4" elbows. The "correct" adapters ended up being the wrong ones and were subsequently cut off and the dealer installed the right ones.

    I spent $196 at Bobcat for the quick couplers, flow reducers and the correct adapters.

    Maybe I should look to Minnesota for cheaper parts.

    I bought 1/16" flow reducers. They are just a hair too small and I will probably end up drilling them out just a little.

    I'm no help as far as coupler size goes. Can you give the dealer a call?
