JCB telehandler with electric selction of the 4 wheel steer

both potentiometers broke, needed a new switch and a new brain, was going to cost a forture. As its only used in a scrapyard crab steer isnt needed, so i plumbed a 4 way valve into the system with a control rod into the footwell to operate it, push in for 4 wheel steer, pull out for 2 wheel steer

no wires, no solenoids, idiot proof.

Rappa fencer with bearings instead of the crappy nylon bushes, the drive belt from the wheel no longer has to have a twist in it, wearing it's self out, the one way cogs on the shaft are turned around and the poly wire feeds onto the top of the reel instead of the bottom. The white bit around the tube is a bit of 32mm sink waste the black bit on the tube above is 3/4" water pipe, both act as wear pad for the drive belt.

where do you plug the oil pipes!
do you slew the arm round and pipe into the breaker pipes?
I use the slew as it is but with long pipes, not ideal but it helps with the weight, oh and a bit of wood under the breaker pedal! Bodges are allowed aren't they?

Would the blade circuit have enough flow?

You could fit a diverter valve and have short oil pipes.

that may be a good idea I'm sure it would have enough flow and it would be a lot neater. it's just it worked so we left it.
