    What attachments use high flow hydraulics? The reason I ask is I am curious if there are any attachments I would EVER use that requires them. I am a "gadget" guy, but this is one option I may not need.

    Thanks!

    Cold planer, some trenchers, some stump grinders, and most brush cutters. I am sure they may be a few others.

    Hey JD...how come Deere skid steers can not offer both hydraulic quick tach AND high flow? The Gehl I was looking at had both. Also, do you have any opinions on the Deere quick tach?

    They are going to change that this fall if I remeber correctly. I think I know what the change will be but not sure if Deere is ready to tell just yet.

    When i got my ctl 332 which has high flow, they told me,they was afraid that you could blow the hydraulic quick tack cyclinder apart when using high flow??????????

    So i'm waiting on the new system,which i was told was!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Since i'm not Deere sales personel !!!!!!!!!! Was going to be an electric solinod setup of some kind,not hydraulic.

    So there you are,time will tell???????????

    The rotary cutters that resemble a bush hog style cutter are not near as taxing on the hydraulics since they are not a continuous duty attachment like a Forestry Head.

    Also my John Deere guy said the John Deere would overheat with the Forestry Head attachment.

    I like having one machine with high flow. It gives me the option of adding high flow attachments without having to upgrade machines at the same time. High flow attachments are expensive and so I don't want to have to upgrade a skid steer and add an attachment at the same time. Although at the time being, I don't have a high flow attachment.
