How many rear remotes do you need to run a Top N Tilt? I saw something that said 1 but then saw a post somewhere (of course I couldn't find it again) where it said you needed 2.

Top and tilt is a DA hydraulic top link and a DA hydraulic side link. At a minimum two DA cylinders requires two sets of remote outlets. You would typically have two double acting valves to go with them but its possible to use one valve and switch it back and forth betwen the outlets.

Does that answer your question?

3. If that's an option for your tractor...
you need 2 for 'top and tilt' AND a spare, cause sooner or later , you'll need it....
probably 'cost effective' to get 3 now.....instead of a 3rd , later on.

My forklift was preplumbed for 3..keep wondering what I could use it for.

Man I'm an idiot....I get it, so one for the top and one for the side. I'll be honest I completely forgot about the side movement which I think is why I was confused. Thanks

Idiots don't ask questions - they simply plunge blindly into the abyss.

Actually you need two for each operation.

Beware the ambiguous antecedent - the bane of clear communication. One valve and one set of outlets for each remote function.

He didn’t ask how many “sets” of remotes… His question implied how many individual he needed… so I wanted to make that clearer. ;)
