    Default Third function switch or button source?

    I've been thinking about adding a diverter for the loader third function to free up one of my rear remotes. I haven't seen a good option for the switch on the loader control.
    A few kits offer a N O momentary switch like this one, but $50 seems a bit steep. http://www.mcmaster.com/#6944K13

    I've seen some auto gear shift knobs with a button installed that would work but they are also $50+
    I'd like a clean look not just a switch taped to the side of the knob or arm tha twofold be convent and I'm probably just being too cheap but wanted to ask here before ordering something

    Has anyone found a better solution ?

    Thanks

    We used a diverter valve to reroute hydraulics from the anchor winch to the power block, on the seiner I worked on.... A simple push/pull knob...... More than $50 but hey, it's hydraulics....

    I got the WR long third function kit when I purchased my tractor and it comes with this handgrip.

    I have ordered one of these to replace the hand grip that came with the kit. I had this grip on my last tractor and liked it a lot. They run about $125.00.

    I will sell the WR Long when the new one arrives for $50 if anyone is interested. The Scorpion fits my hand so much better and recommend it highly. (The WR Long just looks/feels clunky.)

    Thanks for the links, I am looking for a inexpensive switch or knob with a switch but I don't think it's out there, there all more expensive than I would like.
    I thought about something like this, it can be just a plain orange knob and the button would be easy to hit with the thumb. guess I shouldn't be so cheap and spend the $50 to get what I want...

    The Scorpion handles are nice. They are what I started selling last year. Lots of options available also.

    You can get a joystick handle from john deere with a switch and wiring harness for around 75.00. The one i looked up was for a 3320 tractor

    Its here in this post: http://www.tractorbynet.com/forums/c...n-install.html

    I added the same handle to mine a few years ago, but I used the one for a 110TLB (I think it has an extra switch that the one for the 3x20'a does not have) It was more like $175 though, not sure he the other poster got a price $75?
