Anyone have an issue with their momentary switch on their diverter valve for their grapple?
I get 12v to my switch but nothing past that and I can't hear the valve solenoid click when I hit the switch, so I have a problem.
I have an email into Chris but I thought I would ask the smart guys on the GTT forum if they have ever experienced this before.
My scenario: I was moving a log in my woods yesterday when the wires going to the valve snagged on a bush and came apart at splice I had put in to shorten up the wire length on my 2210. I didn't notice it until I was ready to release the log I was moving and the grapple refused to let go. No big deal. I re-wired it but the momentary switch still didn't work. So I got out the multi-meter and I have 12v going from the hot wire I spliced into and it goes into the harness where it goes up to the switch. I try and check for voltage down stream of the switch and I can't get anything to register. So that tells me the potential problem could be in the switch? Am I wrong here? It is a sealed unit so you can't do any troubleshooting to it from what I can tell.
Anyone know where I can source a switch? My internet searches have not turned up anything yet that looks like the Artillian switch and I see Artillian doesn't appear to offer spare/repair parts for this part of the grapple. I am sure it is not supposed to fail but I can break anything.
I am hoping this is an easy fix or just some random act of dumbness on my part because I really need to use my grapple right now. It is amazing how a tool becomes almost indispensable after a while. I have put just over 100 hours on my tractor in the past year and I bet about 85 of it is using the grapple. It is just a handy thing to have.
