How can I operate an attachment that requires two hydraulic hook ups on a Bob cat t650? It has 2 cylinders to extend/retract on on circuit.
2 hydraulic motors on the other ircuit.
(Both circuits do NOT run at the same time)

How many quick connects does the attachment have?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
4 - total 2 for cylinders supply/return
And 2 for motors. Supply/return

The only way you can do that is put a T fitting behind the quick connects already on the machine and use a solenoid and toggle switch or push button whatever works better for you to activate the hydraulic circuits separately. I would ask your local bobcat dealer to see if they sell kits for extra auxiliary hydraulic circuits.
