Re: John Deere 445 Hydraulics question
Excuse my ignorance all you guru's and experts I have a question you'll all probably think is a dumb question, but I'm going to ask anyway haha. I have a 3pt on my 445 and I very rarely take the 60" deck off. Is there a valve or something I need so I can control the 3pt separate from the deck hydraulics? Its not all that handy to have the deck to also be lowered when I use the 3pt blade to level the gravel driveway and other 3pt tasks. What do I need to install? I'm pretty mechanically inclined but have done almost 0 monkeying with this 445 beyond normal servicing.
