    Matbro Pickup Hitch

    I am wanting to fit a pickup hitch to a Matbro TS280 .I have the hitch but now I need to get the hydraulic parts ,it looks as if I would need to fit another slice to the existing proportional valve on the top of the fuel tank but I am having trouble finding it .Are the valves from the TR250 going to be the same? as I have seen some on e bay.I have been quoted £2000 for new parts but cannot justify this sort of spend

    The cheapest option would probably be to fit an electric diverted valve to another service. Something like this:

    https://www.flowfitonline.com/hydraulic-valves/diverter-valves/flowfit-6-way-solenoid-diverter-12-bsp-port-size-12v-dc-80-lmin-flows


    Fit it to a circuit that is less often used like the aux services rather than the boom or crowd. At the flick of a switch it makes the existing service into the PUH. Many machines already use them. There is a snag with them on CCLS systems but not on open centre pumps.By the time you buy hoses and adaptors there probably won’t be much change out of £350
