Finishing the install of hydraulic hoses and fittings required a few more trips to the local supply store but we finally were able to get everything set up and operating correctly.
Picked up this unit (G-55-JD) from Jeff at Compact Tractor Attachments (www.ctattachments.com). Great fit on our JD 3038E D160 front end loader. Excited to see all the uses we have for it.
