    Hi guys.

    I have gotten the task of fitting a Caterpillar SW45 wheelsaw on a bobcat t300. I must say that I already do not like that bobcat. :rolleyes:

    I have a few question for you guys concerning that setup:
    Have any of you guys seen a similar setup??

    How on earth do you get an electrical signal out to the solenoids on the saw from the machine? The machine has a 7pin connector, but I cant get any signal to any of the connector, when activating one of the extra swithes in the cab.

    Is it possible to build an addictional set of hydraulic attachment fittings on the machine, without disturbing the hiflow setup??

    Cat has a 10 pin connector and Bobcat has a 7 pin? I think there is an adapter for that.

    I have heard of that, but it shold be possible to make one at least. The only problem is that I cant get any current signal out the any of the wires, no matter which button I press
