Just bought this hydraulic system: http://reno.craigsli...3095825652.html
We'll be driving up to Reno to pick it up in a couple of weeks. I plan to put it on my Snapper 1600 to operate the three point lift and front blade.

Dave, I'm going to use it to power a three point hitch and a front blade. The Snapper 1600 is the same as a Snapper/Massey 1650 except it has a standard transmission, no hydraulics. This will make it a lot better tractor.

We were planning our trip so I started looking on Craigslist in the different areas were going to. Hopefully I don't load the Tahoe so much that Linda has to hold something in her lap part of the way, I don't think I could get by with that.

That setup should be perfect for your plans. Maybe even add in some power steering, while you're at it ! :thumbs:
And as far as Linda holding your treasures, my wife would make me pull over and SHE would drive . . . . off, leaving me with an armfull of junk. :( :smilewink:

That is a great deal! I don't think it is quite big enough for a log splitter though! LOL!

Fantastic deal on that unit, usually 2- 3 times that much around here. Good luck with the change over, you'll be really happy once its hooked up.
