    I have put one on my L3130 but not the BX. I would give WR Long a call and see what they have for a kit for the BX. I plike the WR Long because I can function the grapple while curling the bucket. They usually go by the loader model for the kits.

    OK, I just reviewed all the problem posts regarding the kubota made third function valve. I ain't got time for trouble when the sun is shining and spring is in the air, so I'm going with W.R. Long.

    I have a kubota third function on my l3940. It has been a problem since day one. Had it to two different dealers at least seven trips in total and it still sticks and bleeds down real bad. Will go with some third party next time.

    Love the grapple just frustrated with the third function.

    I had never heard anyone complain about the kubota 3rd function. I hope I don't have problems
