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.

Good kit January 28, 2016
Reviewer: James Jablonsky from Polk City, FL United States  
Finally installed the kit on my Kubota L3250DT with a BF550 loader. Good quality parts and had everything to to make a neat installation. The only thing I'd change would be to put a stop at the top of the handle where it slides over the loader joystick. After everything was installed, the solenoid was staying engaged when the power came on (I have this wired to an accessory terminal on the ignition switch). Initially thought it was a bad switch and took it off to troubleshoot. After a little while, came to realize that the switch terminals were making contact with the metal joystick and energizing the solenoid. Reinstalled leaving about a 1/2" space between the switch and the top of the joystick. I can see others having a similar problem. Some sort of stop built into the handle or a plastic cap to put over the top of the joystick should be able to solve the issue at minimal cost.

Great Device and Kit! January 26, 2016
Reviewer: Eric Erickson from Conroe, TX United States  
Ordered a 3rd function valve kit along with a Wicked Grapple.  It arrived with all needed hardware for install.  Simple bolt on setup and essentially a plug and play operation with proper fittings and the correct hose lengths included.  Highly recommend this kit to compliment your grapple purchase.  Very easy to use switch with controls right at fingertips of the hand that operates the loader control.

tractor loader jd 3038e hydraulic kit December 22, 2015
Reviewer: Trey Marshall from Appling, GA United States  
everything fine works fine.....could have used better instructions on which line was power beyond port.
EA Response:  The location of the power beyond port should be covered in the tractor or loader owners manual.
