Hey Dan,Yes but I am cheap and would not spend that much money for that valve. Here is a solenoid switched valve for half that price - you would also need a $2 toggle switch and some wire:
Still very special purpose and I would go this more general route:
Order it with the 2 position detent option and a power beyond sleeve and two quick couplers for the ports. Plumb it into the tractor hydraulics by daisy chaining off the loader valve as discussed earlier. That gives you a place to hook up your backhoe - just plug the hoe in to the work ports on the remote and shift the spool to supply oil to the hoe from one work port and the return work port going straight to the tank. It also gives you DA remotes for a cylinder when the hoe is not mounted.
And there is no need to stop at one spool - the incremental cost for two or three spools is quite small....,
I'm actually in the next county over from you, in Carroll County, MD. I used to hang out in Fredrick when my wife and I were dating. She was at Hood Collage. Back when FredRock was a small little town in the country.
So looking at all these options and trying to filter out the wants and needs factored by the dollar and install details is a real good time. Since my hoe controls only have two hoses I guess that would be the P and T ports. So is it feasible to Tee off the PB port of the block under the foot board and run a line to the QD then run the T line from the Hoe to the #140 fitting as shown in the above diagram? Or install a diverter or selecting valve plumed from the PB into the P port and switch between the loader controller and the backhoe Manual Hydraulic Selector Valve, 3-Way, 2 Position, 21 GPM, #8 SAE Ports (summit-hydraulics.com) . With these proposals is there a need to loop the connections when the hoe is not connected? With only the two lines on the hoe I'm trying to wrap my mind around the need to run the P in a series design.
In the near future I will be adding an offset flail mower and was thinking of adding the plumbing out back to control the unit but thought I would simply drop the loader off which makes it easier to maneuver and hook into the loader joy stick QD's. Your idea about the rear remotes is enticing. Just need to keep it simple and near budget.
