Tractor Loader 3rd Function Hydraulic Valve Kit

Allows the use of a 3rd function such as a grapple or 4 in 1 bucket. This kit is for tractors that use less than 15 GPM, larger tractors will require the upgraded option. Call for more details (you must have your tractor model and loader model numbers when ordering.) The 3rd function kit connects to the power beyond port of your existing loader valve. This is a full 3rd function kit allowing you to raise/lower, dump/curl, and open/close at the same time. The hand grip with three position rocker switch is designed to fit over you loader joy stick and be screwed on.

Our valve kits are powered by the power beyond port. The purpose of the power beyond port is to provide auxiliary power to attachments beyond the loader valve. Example: 3 point hitch, rear remotes, backhoe, etc. The majority of tractors / loaders will continue to supply fluid to the power beyond port at all times. It doesn’t matter if you dump, curl, float, go up and curl at the same time, etc…. With that being said there are some that will not. Some will stop sending fluid to the power beyond port if you go up and curl at the same time or float. ( do more than one function at a time) and instead the loader valve will dump all the excess fluid back into the tank. This means you can only use 2 functions at a time. It’s still a 3rd function valve since you are adding a 3rd set of hydraulics to the front of the tractor, you just don’t get to use all three functions with one motion of the joystick. Example. You can go up and control my valve at one time, curl and control my valve at one time, up and curl, etc. If you are concerned about this the way to check it would be to connect to your rear remotes with a attachments and run that attachment. Then try to go up and curl your bucket all at the same time. Not counting once you have gone all the way up and curled all the way back since then your relief valve will kick in and all fluid get diverted back to tank then. “Southwest” on the joystick. If your rear attachment stops or significantly slows down then you have lost the fluid to your power beyond port and you are limited to only using 2 features at one time. If everything continues to work then you still have fluid going thru the power beyond port and you will be able to use all three functions at one time. Example: (Up, curl and open attachment). Long story short is the customer could not use all three functions with one motion of the joystick. It’s all about what the tractor loader valve does….

NOTE: If your tractor comes with a backhoe as standard equipment like the Kubota L39, then the hose lengths will be correct. If you have a backhoe that is an option or later added on, then the hose length and hose end may not be correct since the valve kit is designed for the loader when there is no backhoe present.

Perfect Fit and Easy to Follow Directions May 27, 2016
Reviewer: Keith Jones from Midlothian, VA United States  
Just Installed the 2-3rd function kits I ordered.
1 for 4400DT Kubotaw/ 703 loader and 1 for John Deere 4520 w/ 400x loader and they fit perfectly.
The instructions were easy to follow and the end result looks like it was put on at the factory.
Also purchased 6' W.R. Long grapple thru these guys
and it hooked up perfect!
I would recommend these guys to everybody!

Less than excited about it. May 25, 2016
Reviewer: Joe Hayes from Marion , IL United States  
I am an old farm boy who have run just about every type of equipment there is.  I felt the directions on this could be a little better written and could be illustrated better as well.  Every thing was there and it works fine but the hoses were longer than needed.  Lucky in a way there were because they sent the wrong size end to hook to the bottom of the unit. (Ends were too Small)
Had to take them to town and have the ends cut off and new ones the correct size put on.
Someone was not paying attention when they made up the hoses.  Not so happy about that added expense.  Quality of the unit seems good, just a little aggravation.
