    MX6000 ROPS, FEL with 3rd function for grapple already installed. Working with Messick's to add (3) "Kubota factory" rear remotes - which is stretching my very basic knowledge of hydraulics in spite of having researched lots of threads on the subject. Plan is to use (2) rear remotes for TnT...

    Use 3rd Function for Rear Hydraulic Purposes?

    MX6000 with a 3rd function hydraulic connection added for the front. No additional hydraulics currently installed for the rear. Looking at a used traveling disc harrow with a hydraulic lift for limited use (and not while the grapple is attached!) Though not ideal, could the 3rd Function setup...
