    I have been wanting to relocated the hydraulic pedal of my 9000H from the pump itself to on the floor. I noticed that spolar/PW have a foot pedal and I was wondering if anyone has done this with their 9000H.

    The valve on the MEC is a mechanically actuated valve physically located between the motor and the hydraulic pump. That does not lend itself to relocation. You could explore levers and pullys attached to the foot lever. Some sort of Rube Goldberg arraingement may be possible.

    682, do you have a picture of from the side? Does the pedal just hang there and "float" around on the floor? Thanks for pictures.

    I had obtained a long type power brake pedal from a junk yard, then welded it onto the MEC pedal, this gave me much more area of pedal to depress, and it works great while eated.
