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.
**Rather than leaving the hoses/couplers loose, the kit now includes a bulkhead plate to rigidly mount them to the tractor loader. Some of the bulkhead plates are not tractor specific**

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 3 rd function valve since you are adding a 3 rd 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…

Attn: These are custom kits available for many tractor makes/models. Call us to see if a kit is available for your tractor.

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, hose end and valve mount may not be correct since the valve kit is designed for the loader when there is no backhoe present.

3 of 5 third function January 20, 2023
Reviewer: Robert Delaney from Boston Lake, NY United States  
The third function didn't fit my Kubota 4310. I wound up welding my own brackets and shortening the lines about 30".
It works well. I run my tractor in the woods a lot. I don't want anything hanging out where it can get hit.  EA RESPONSE:  The kits are designed to be in a location that's out of the way as much as possible, and also where you can install and access it easily.  If any components are incorrect, let us know, and we'll be glad to assist and get you what is needed if an error was made.  Thanks for the business.

3 of 5 January 20, 2023
Reviewer: Dan Carlson from Geneseo, IL United States  
It's too bad the valve has to sit out on the loader arm and potentially be subjected to brush and branches. The hyd lines were too long and had to be shortened to fit right to the bulkhead. From what I can see the lines from the grapple will also need to be shortened... won't know for sure until Apr.  EA RESPONSE:  The kits are designed to be in a location that's out of the way as much as possible, and also where you can install and access it easily.  If any components are incorrect, let us know, and we'll be glad to assist and get you what is needed if an error was made.  Thanks for the business.

3 of 5 It’s ok. January 4, 2023
Reviewer: Scottsjeeprolet from Kingsville, MD United States  
Had to work with WR Long to figure out a better way to install this. Got new hoses from them.  EA RESPONSE:  We're thankful for WR Long's excellent customer service and cooperation if there's ever an issue with wrong parts being sent with one of these 3rd function kits.  Service after the sale, when needed, is always available from EA and WR Long.  Thanks for the business!
