Hello all.new to the group and this type of board as well.

 

I just got a Dig-it 188t,and cant find much info on the little girl anywhere,but it looks alot like a ingersoll 6018 from what I have seen online.

 Got it with no engine but I found a nice Kohler Magnum 18 that I got cheap..but the braked for the hydro pump is gone so I will need to make/find a new one.

 i also have this dream of putting a QD on the loader and installing a hydro deck of a Jacobson turfmaster 428 on this machine,but not sure if I will need 2 pumps or not.Thanks to you all,lots of good info on this site!

You can get the manuals for a 6018, which should have the pump # listed. You could check the specs from there. The hydro drive 72" deck on the Jacobsen I had was driven by a seperate pump than the machine's hydro system. Luckily, the 6018's pump puts out a lot of oil at a higher psi than found in any GT and even beats most SCUTs. I think it might work.

Thats great news!!!I have no idea how to tell when someone responds to my post on here,so it took me awhile the find your reply.

 Do you think the Dig-it and 6018 are close enough to use the sam manual?

As gopher stated, the only difference is the backhoe. Digg-it's can reach farther and deeper.

I don't see the manual in our library. Check this link:

Yes, all Ingersoll or Case units use motor oil in their hydraulic drive systems.
