Upgrading hydraulics on a Tiger?
A good friend of mine, has decided to start rebuilding their Steiger Tiger. When weighed against the price of newer iron, they figure they can have a almost new tractor for far less money.
They want to start at the hydraulics, and replace the existing system with something more modern, like a closed center, load sensing, with electric over hydraulic control, and in-cab flow control. A huge gpm flow rate isn't really needed, as they quit with air drills, and went back to box drills. He does however, need 8 remote outlets.
Just wondering if someone has done this, before he reinvents the wheel?
FWIW the tractor is a '78 ST 450 Tiger, Series III with a KT 1150 and Allison tranny.
