I think the Case units are easiest. All pumps, controls, motors are hydraulic and you can put them anywhere and connect with hoses, no big linkage problems.

I think member ducky built something out of a Massey. I did a quick search and found it: Massey 1855 to 4855

I'm going to build a mini articulating high loader out of a Burkeen B30 Trencher, I paid scrap price for it because the engine was out of it. So if your looking to build a articulating garden tractor you might be able to find a old trencher that's already set up and it would be a good start on one.

Good luck on your project :wave:
