    hey everyone I’m looking for tools to work on my case 580ck. I would need larger crows feet to get the hydraulic lines off and larger sockets. Or if anyone can point me in the right direction. This is going to be a labor of love since this was my grandfathers and I’m looking to fix it up to use. I refuse to just let it rot away. Thanks everyone.

    If you have a way to cut steel you can make your own crows feet. I've make 3 or 4 for working on mine. There not pretty by any means, but they get the job done. I've also had good luck finding large sockets at second hand stores.

    You’d be surprised what you can reach and break loose with a good air hammer and a long punch.... I don’t even carry crows feet.
