Manufacturers of hydraulic top links and hydraulic side links for most tractor 3 point hitches.
Please look through our list of makes and models of tractors that we currently have side link
If your tractor is on one of these lists, then we can manufacture a side link with just your
tractor make and model.
If we do not show your tractor make and model, please fill out the correct form that matches
your side link type with all of the information required and we can fabricate your side link with
Most of our top links have the hydraulic ports pointing to the side and include 90° fittings so as
to achieve the best possible hose routing. You may request the ports to point upward if you
feel that better fits your tractor. If there is no preference indicated at the time of your order,
your top link will be fabricated with the ports to the side. Please note that Kubota L Series
tractors have the hydraulic ports on the top of the cylinder.
All of our category 1 side links have the hydraulic ports pointing backwards towards the
implement as in the picture with the red tractor.
Here is a list of our most common hydraulic top links. The ones with a 10 inch stroke seem to work
out the best. But it is always better to check what your specific needs may be before purchasing.
Top link operating lengths will vary depending on the make and model of tractor.
We can make just about any custom length that you may need.
2" Diameter Cylinders
8" stroke Cat 1 Top link > 18" - 26" ------ $225
10" stroke Cat 1 Top link > 20" - 30" ----- $225
12" stroke Cat 1 Top link > 22" - 34" ----- $250
2 1/2" Diameter Cylinders
8" stroke Cat 1 and Cat 1-2 Top link > 19 1/2" - 27 1/2" ----- $250
10" stroke Cat 1 and Cat 1-2 Top link > 22" - 32" ---- $250
12" stroke Cat 1 and Cat 1-2 Top link > 24" - 36" ---- $275
3" Diameter Cylinders
8" stroke Cat 1-2 and Cat 2 Top link > 20" - 28" ---- $300
10" stroke Cat 1-2 and Cat 2 Top link > 22" - 32" ---- $300
12" stroke Cat 1-2 and Cat 2 Top link > 24" - 34" ---- $325
Special top links are required to be able to use all 3 pin hole locations in the top link bracket of
many tractors. If you prefer to have 100% usage of these 3 pin locations, then we can build a top
link that can meet these requirements by being a shorter stroke hydraulic cylinder. Most customers
seem to prefer having the longer stroke and forego the capability of using all 3 pin locations.
If your tractor has draft control that operates from the top link pin locations, then we recommend
that you get a top link that accomodates the use of all 3 pin locations. Typically this is done by
using a 2" shorter stroke hydraulic with a longer tractor end on the top link cylinder.

30" & 36"- 3/8" hose kits with 1/2" AG quick disconnects are $50 a set. A set is 2 hoses with the male

Hydraulic Flow Restrictors. These slow the hydraulic flow down so that adjustments are much easier to
be made. $10.00 each.(If you buy these separately, please include $3.00 shipping for the first unit

There are always exceptions to most everything, if you have one of these exceptions we will do our
best to accommodate your requirements. We pride ourselves in being able to provide a product that
you as a customer can take out of the box and install it with no modifications required.
For category 2 side links, the standard port location points backwards towards the implement.
You may choose to have the the hydraulic ports of the side link point towards the center of
the tractor as in the picture with the blue tractor. Depending on your rear quick disconnect
location, this may help in achieving the best routing of the hydraulic hoses.
