How easy is it to add another hydraulic cylinder to my 220? I made a bucket for it using my plow blade but I wouldlike to use a piston to open the clamshell to dump the dirt. I just need to know if I can add another piston to the tractor w/o spending a tons of money.

Something like this member did

Surplus Center has a 2 spool control valve for loaders ($150) that you could tap into the existing hydraulic system to use for your loader that way you'd have both controls at your fingertips and you could still use the one on the tractor for the rear lift,mower or whatever.Of course you need fittings and hydraulic lines etc probably roughly another $100 or so.If you have a parts yard near you you might luck up and find everything you need pretty cheap.I just bought at auction two 3 spool valve setups with a bunch of hoses for $25.Also Deere had a lot of garden tractors with the 2 spool valve set up some of those around for parts.
