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.

Awesome / Kubota L4600 April 14, 2016
Reviewer: Terry Apple from McEwen, TN United States  
I'm not the best mechanic and was a little nervous about installing the valve kit. I had watched a short video on YouTube of this install on the same tractor. Everything was simple had all the parts the correct instructions after everything was completed and my grapple attached not a flaw. Will spread theword. fast shipping no haggling awesome product

Mahindra 3016 3rd function valve April 7, 2016
Reviewer: Thomas Ellington from Concord, NC United States  
First let me say, I dont know anything about hydraulics. But I was able to read the instructions and hook up my own hoses. Works like a champ! All hoses were the correct length too. Nice setup

Works Great! April 7, 2016
Reviewer: Jim from Fort Myers, FL United States  
The 3rd Function Hydraulic Kit from W.R. Long works great!  Written instructions shouldn't even be included if you have a Backhoe, because they don't apply at all.  Just go by the diagram and it all makes sense, which is what I did.  Used fittings included to make the backhoe hoses long enough.  I have moved piles of oak limbs and trees and never stepped off the tractor with the root grapple.  What could have taken days, was only a few hours!  Couldn't be happier!

3Function Kit March 29, 2016
Reviewer: Raymond Self from Valley Head, AL United States  
Kit arrived short one of the parts and the instructions were not for my exact tractor.  Once I figured it out the job went quick and I was very happy with the results.
