    Putting new cat 262d3 in fleet.
    Have 3 planers and 4 saw wheels from case 1845C.
    Years ago, changed manifolds on 2 to run on 3 hose Cat 248B. Put custom harness in 248B.

    I'd like to source manifolds for less than the $2600 each from Woods/ Alitec. Anyone have a source?

    Are those manifolds proprietary? I would think you could contact the oem of the components and see if they can help you out. I would think Alitec sourced off the shelf components as they don't built those themselves, but I am not familiar with them. I have a Coneqtec wheel saw that is high flow 3 hose.

    Just got in a Bobcat 3hose setup manifold for just under $1800.
    Cheapest one I could find.

    And Woods bought Alitec years ago, and, after the non compete ran out,the Alitec founders started Roadhog.
