    Bought a SUIHE brush cutter attachment on Richie Bros auction and am looking for instructions. It has 3 hydo hose and not sure which is which or where I should hook it up to my Kubota SVK-90-2 skid steer.

    Hello, are there fitting on the hoses ?
    The third is case drain, usually smaller. I am not familiar w your skidder to know it's setup...
    Other r feed and return. Should not hurt motor if your run backwards... just give it little flow and see which way cutter turns. I assume counter clock wise when looking from bottom.

    The Kubota has a case drain return. I am going to take a picture of the motor with the hoses today and will post it and would really be appreciative if you could speculate what hose goes to what. The hoses do not have fittings
    so will have to get those online. By the way do you know what the advantage to having a case drain is. Thanks so much for the reply.

    Sure. FYI suihe likely used common motor. Try and get info ie name plate on actual motor. Then try Web search that.
    But I definitely give my two cent opinion .

    Thaks I will look that information up this am. I have attached 3 photos showing the low flow in and out hoses on the top of the unit and the case drain hose on the bottom. I am going to talk to Skid Steer Solutions later today to get fittings back to the kabota. Thanks for everyone;s help. These type of forums are excellent.

    So u identified case drain, now it's 50/50 on supply and return... just pick one and try spin slow. My guess is left feed right return . If I am wrong just switch the couplers to get right rotation

    Thanks everyone. Can anyone tell me what size the fittings are on the Suihe. Tried to determine yesterday at the hardware store to no avail. I am sure I am going to need a converter couplrt since most quick connectes I have seen are female. Thanks again.
