I like it. I bought it used last year and put 600 hours on it. 2150 hours total on it now. Haven't had to work on a thing. Just grease, oil and air filter. It runs my torrent just fine so it keeps me rolling.

I will try and snap them today. Mini is sitting in a field right now. The only line that is out of the norm is the case drain line. I will get pics of that one for sure. You have to T it in at the tank. This is the one I had the most problem trying to figure out.

Thanks. Did you use flat face couplers on the hoses?

I plumb them every time. After talking with both my Deere dealer as well as the guys at torrent. Torrent said the more flow I ran to the head the better it would run. My deere mechanic said that there is some restriction to quick couplers so I Opted to run it direct as you can see in the photo. One thing I would recommend would be some kind of covering on the hoses. They live in a very harsh environment.

pic one is of 3 way valve that I switch to run thumb or mulcher

Since you will have to use couplers,maybe go with the larger high flow flat face couplers????

Like the one on the high flow CTL or skids.

After posting I went and researched the actual flow rates of teh couplers.

Here is a link too pressure lose of the couplers. I think the 12FF is standard skid couplers and the 19ff are high flow couplers. At 20 GPM there is minmal pressure loss across the coupler of the standard size skid steer coupler.
