Hey guys, thought maybe somebody could use this info. I've seen several write-ups on adding rear SCVs but not on the factory loader backhoe 1025r, which has power beyond installed. I may have missed a post about it.
So I started out by buying a rear SCV kit from Deere (BLV10838) which I now realize is specifically for a tractor with a cab. My dealer was clueless and couldn't seem to find me any information on which kit I needed exactly. So I received the kit and took it out of the box and disassembled my tractor, only to find out the power beyond already used the hydraulic ports that I was supposed to hook into for the rear SCV.
Returned the kit to John Deere. Here's what I came up with and it was about half price anyway.
Chief open center valve from tractor supply, $145
Hydraulic fittings and hoses, ~$200
I just plugged the valve into the power beyond essentially.
I thought it came together ok, 3 point hitch lever is slightly harder to access and valve can get warm when using the tractor but a simple heat shield could fix that.
I like that it's easy to swap to the backhoe because it retains the factory power beyond.
I drew up the drag scraper that's hooked on the tractor and had my buddy build it because I was busy in the fields and wanted it done in time for me to get lawn in my yard this fall yet, really happy with how that turned out also.
Thanks to everyone that posts all the good info on here, I've learned a lot.
