The better question is do you have a use for the additional fourth position and many people do not. In some cases a detented 3 position or self canceling 4 way valve is preferred. There is even a use case for detented or spring center 3 way valves.I only have float remotes. Price aside, what are the use cases where you’d want a double acting rear remote over a float rear remote?
Float detent is just a fourth position on a double acting valve.I’m probably not asking this question in the right way because I still don’t understand. What types of implements and utilizations of the implements would benefit from a double acting valve more/better than a float detent valve?
When in float the pump is connected to tank along with both work ports. There is no pressure at the logsplitter. That is the definition of float. You can purchase a 3 position 4 way valve with detents on one or both shifted positions and use it to supply something like a log splitter. On my tractor I have a set of constant flow outlets for the log splitter. They are controlled by a simple two position push-pull selector valve.Interesting, I thought the float detent was required for 3-point splitters, to ensure continual flow of the hydraulic fluid?
I can give you one case. Maybe.I only have float remotes. Price aside, what are the use cases where you’d want a double acting rear remote over a float rear remote?
Henro you have talked abour these valves with built in cylinder locks multiple times. I have never seen a valve like that. What brand and model are they?I can give you one case. Maybe.
My rear remotes are double acting, but with built in check valves. The check valves lock the cylinders in place and there is virtually no leak down.
I have one double acting valve with float detent. When not in float, it acts as a normal double acting valve does. So a cylinder that is connected to the float capable valve, WILL leak down over time. How fast depends on how tight the valve clearances are.
If the remote with float is on something where leak down might be a concern, better to use a double acting valve with check valves built in. An example might be a tilt cylinder on the 3PH when a rotary cutter is attached.
BUT this may be an aside, as you did not ask about valve sections that have check valves built in. Personally I think they are a great option.
Also, pilot operated check valves are not compatible with the float option. You can get one or the other, but not both.
Sorry for the tangential reply...hope it was worth my typing it.
Is this in response to my question? If so you missed my point.https://www.agristoreusa.com/collections/category-1-hydraulic-top-links
‘These have the check valves. My Kubota top link is smooth on sides and does not, hence it leaks down so you want to keep that in mind.
It has been probably 15 years or a bit more since I bought them. I may have put some details in a thread I started at TBN back then. If I can find some details I will post them.Henro you have talked abour these valves with built in cylinder locks multiple times. I have never seen a valve like that. What brand and model are they?
Prince makes the SV series (12 GPM) and 20 series (20 GPM) sectional valves . I have used both and AFAIK the only check valves availabe with in them are the normal load checks present in just about all directional control valves. Are you by chance confusing load checks with cylinder checks?It has been probably 15 years or a bit more since I bought them. I may have put some details in a thread I started at TBN back then.

With these valve sections there is a definite “click” due to the check valves shifting when the valve is operated. I think I got the from Prince.
