Thanks, yes, great suggestion, top hydraulic and manually tilt when needed. I only have one big project (for me) planned, that is leveling 3/4 of an acre that was an old hay field.David,
it sounds like you got 2 sets of rear remote hydraulic valves that you plan to use for top and tilt. In my advice to Tim, ( the post you replied to) I suggested that he consider the need for rear remotes, I did not mention top and tilt. There are many uses for rear remotes other than top and tilt. I use my rear remotes for, rear snowblower (rotate and chute angle), top link, tilt trailer, rear blade angle adjustment and other uses.
I have hydraulic top links On my 3 tractors but do not run 3 pt hydraulic tilt cylinders on any of them. Personally I would not fit hydraulic tilt to a B2601 as it is a fairly light tractor and does not have a great capability for heavy ground work, this is the reason you are not finding the option readily available.
Brian at Fit Rite does great work and he will make what you need if you want a tilt, he has always been backed up with 6 months work or so.
My suggestion is to buy an off the shelf hydraulic top link for now, get some use on your tractor and the attachment that you may think you want the tilt for. After some use if you still want a 3. Pt tilt cylinder order it from Brian.
Good luck with your new equipment.
And yes, I did come to the conclusion that this is not common on a b2601 because it is a light tractor.
And at least I will have the remotes if I ever need them and I'd rather have the tractor delivered that way.
I'm looking forward to the new adventure and appreciate the support on the forum.
