Anyone try to connect another spool valve to the (Prince) spool for a bucket mounted grapple?

I can build the grapple for less than the on-line price, including the cylinder, but if I have to buy and plumb a selector, or selector/switch combo, I'm not sure of the cost or ease of building. I haven't done much hydraulic work.

Thanks,
Mike

You could do that but presently your Prince valve PB port attaches to the tractor to power the 3ph. Your additional valve would have to be powered from the loader valve PB port and the PB port on your additional valve would in turn have to attach back to the tractor to power the 3ph. Beware when purchasing the additional valve, that the new valve must have a PB port, as not all valves do. I hope this helps.

It helps a lot! I didn't realize it powered the 3PH.

Now to price some valves.

Thank-you!

Took the baby out for a workout today, WOW am I happy! Even though it wasn't an exact fit, it works great.

I stacked about 8-10 cord of green logs, and piled enough brush to keep me busy for days burning it!
