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…

Our valve is made for momentary use like open / close or left / right operation. It is not made for rotary implements like augers. The valve has a extremely tight tolerance and if held down to use a rotary attachment it will heat up and swell causing the valve to seize. Thanks!

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.

Reviewer: Joseph Lynch from Barton, NY United States  
Very easy to install, I had a few questions concerning the backhoe hook-up and the tech team walked me right through it.

3rd function June 22, 2016
Reviewer: Andrew Simcik from robstown , TX United States  
The mount set up would not work on the side at the location specified. Came with wrong size hoses.
Everything attachment was verry fast to make it right with the cost of the replacement hoses. High five for the service. And response.
Product works great once installed verry simple.

Great product June 22, 2016
Reviewer: Lee from Blythwood, SC United States  
Had questions finding power beyond port and they walked me right through hooking it up. It was a much easier install than expected. Got it right the first time and i have no experience working on hydraulics.

3rd Function Hydraulic Kit June 15, 2016
Reviewer: steven summerer from convent Station, NJ United States  
I installed the kit myself. The directions could be better and should contain some pics to make installation easier. I had to drill the installation holes bigger because the bolts they provided were to big for the existing holes. There was no mention of this in the directions. They also shorted me one fitting which I received a couple of days later after calling customer service. Once installed it works great.
