Hydraulic parts scavenging

Post by rkcarguy » Tue Oct 31, 2017 1:15 pm

Hey guys, I came across a Try-Bilt roto-tiller that doesn't run, but appears to be hydraulic. It free-wheels in neutral and has fwd/rev so the valve is an open center obviously, the right one for a hydraulic train setup. I know it's a little slow so some gearing up would be in order, but for the right price wouldn't one of these be a good start for a little 2 axle switcher like the "Hustler" or equal?
