    Power beyond port: to add or not?

    I'm going to be adding another 2 spool valve to the back of my tractor and integrating the one already there into the hydraulic system (finally!) so I will no longer be using the rear SCV to run my top and tilt OR my stump grinder (not both, just one or the other ) and having to hold the SCV lever to do anything for that matter. As such, I'll be deep into the plumbing and it'd be super easy to add a genuine power beyond circuit to the tractor. The only question is should I or not?

    The only real down sides I can think of is that it takes a little real estate, and I'm not sure what I'd use it for.

    Get it now while the kit(s) are still available. I put a PB kit on my 4200 and have yet to need it.

    I think you are the only one that can really answer that question. If you have the extra $, go for it. If not, then wait till you need it. You can always the $ later.

    I'm not sure there is one from JD, and if there was it would probably be obscenely expensive. My 4 extra spools and all associated plumbing cost less than the second rear SCV valve from Deere.


    What I'm talking about doing is adding the external loop to the power beyond circuit. All that's needed is a section of hose, two couplers, and a mounting bracket. I can put it between the two additional valves and only add two short hoses to the entire installation. Total cost = $30 or less.

    For $30, I’d be on it! It wouldn’t bother me if I ever used it or not. Tractor will probably bring a slightly higher price when you sell or might just seal a deal.

    For $30 and not having to hold/bungee your SCV lever ... I think you already answered your own question. Go for it.

    But I won't have to hold my SCV lever for the other functions anymore anyway.

    What would I end up with that would need a power beyond circuit? That's what I'm really asking.
