At 80 years old, my dad was having trouble steering his tractor. Now it really does steer with one finger! And having power steering makes it so much more maneuverable in the woods. It is very easy to quickly turn tight corners around stumps and rocks.

We ordered your power steering kit for a 1957 Oliver Super 55. The kit came with everything we needed to convert the Oliver to power steering. Now we can use the front mounted loader with one hand. Keep up the good service.

Steve had this to say about JPS on his father-in-law’s tractor:
“…power steering makes a total difference in the tractor… he loves his tractor even more.”

Hi Roland… finally getting around to sending you a picture of my tractor after installing the power steering. It is fantastic! It is now fun to use the tractor and it saves me work, instead of being work to use it like it was before. I put it to work right away… the pictures are from a little logging operation when I went into the forest and cut logs for the vigas on the house I am building. I will try to get another picture at the house where I am using the tractor with the adobe block building process. Your power steering saved the day for me!

The installation went flawlessly! It took me around 5 hours and except for removing the mouse nests it went perfect. I’m ecstatic on the ease of the steering. Great design. Needless to say its a more dramatic difference than I ever expected! I think anyone that orders a kit and has even moderate mechanical ability will be able to install it without any problem. All in all I’m thrilled with the way it works. Well worth the wait.

I’m one happy old man 75 thanks to Jackson Power Steering. As I told you I bought this tractor new in 1955. It’s had a loader on most of the time when I farmed and loaded manure out of a small barn and from packs of youngstock manure. In my younger days steering was no big deal but at 75 it was tough.
Installing was not bad. My Freeman loader’s spool valve had a pipe welded between the base to the reserve tank. Cutting that out and welding in couplings was the toughest. But the end result was worth it all.
