    Just wondering if anyone here has piped a 60 *5.
    Was thinking of getting her piped and putting a flail head on it.have seen 130s with bale handlers on them for stacking etc and a video of a yoke with a sheargrab filing the feeder.
    Would 1500 pipe her and was told about 4k for a flail.
    Hedges are cut every 2 to 3 yrs but can forget about tractor this yr

    Is there a third pipe needed to run flails on a digger . Neighbour bought a hitachi 140 this year . It was plumbed for a breaker but near certain he said they fitted and extra line if he ever wanted to fit a flail head to it .

    3 pipes required.
    Flow and return and what's called a case drain line. It's basically just to relieve pressure of oil that escapes past seals in the motor. Very little oil goes through this line and certain type motors don't need it from what im told but most of the common ones do. €100 would fit it to most machines and cuts down the chance of blowing up your motor.

    Id imagine E15000 plus vat to buy the mulcher.

    Mulcher or saw i cant tell you how much an hour they are , despite having had both here in past 18 months . Hard to pin down a definite bill from our lad. Bills roll on for years . Paying bits on account.

    I don't know the specs of a 60-5 but just wondering would it have enough of a constant flow down the hammer line to run a flail, have had a flow meter on the sumitomo here which is putting out 70-75 l/min while stationary but this drops to 45 when you move the arm or slew. Obviously your not moving when using a breaker so it gets the full amount, just something to consider first before spending a heap of money and being disappointed! There's a guy not far from here that had a saw on a 8 ton hitachi that the flow would drop when moving, he used to let it build up speed then let the saw in, t'was horrible to listen to for the hydraulics.

    A case drain line is usually used on a piston type motor, they use piston types on excavators because of the higher working pressures.

    Western hydraulics fit a high pressure seal in both saw and trimmer heads doing away with the need to run a third drain line. We got the saw of him and a ghedini mulcher which doesn't need the 3rd line either. 100euro won't go far making steel and rubber pipes to run down the arm of a digger.

    Couple of metres of 3/8 hose and a fitting on each end. Maybe a €100 is a tad low but it wouldn't be a huge amount more.
    Any I've ever seen were rubber hose tiewrapped to the steel lines down the jib. Not pretty but very few put a third steel line on jib

    Not sure if theres a dual pump on the ex60-5, we have a ex60-3 and only single pump so wouldnt run a hedge cutter and have the ability to slew or track so it would be a waste... I have seen a ex60-1 with dual pump and saw head attached, handy tool..
