    Hello. Our kill cable for our hitachi ex135ur was missing when we got it. No info in manuals on how long it is. We can’t find the part online easily so we are planning on having one made. Thanks for your time.

    I put one on a PC120 Komatsu awhile back. The cable cost about $80 was all. Building new linkage and having to clean out the cab, take the cab shell loose and run the cable routing and then adjusting it all to work was a lot bigger job. In all it ran around $1,200. A kill cable only goes so far to stop the engine and the linkage is just a pull type. Shouldn't be much of a problem for you.
