This web site and especially this forum has become my "life line" for all things I don't understand about tractor hydraulics. My ordered 4052R with cab will arrive in the next week or two. The dealer is about a two hour ride from me so I'm trying to get my 4052R set up and equipped with all needed hydraulics so I won't have to bring it back to the dealership for additional installation. To compound matters, I don't own a trailer to transport it, so it's important for me to get things done correctly before the dealer brings the 4052R to me.
So here goes with another question regarding hydraulics.
I've ordered my 4052R with the 3rd, 4th and 5th hydraulic SCV. The 3rd SCV has rear tubing. I told my dealer that I wanted to be able to hook up my 3rd SCV to run my soon to be ordered Grapple. To assist with the Grapple hookup, I purchased the JD Hydraulic Kit BW16414.
This was his reply:
I just laid this hydraulic diagram out with one of my techs and the best way is to add the bw16414 line kit and connect it to the blv10763 (which you already bought). We would create a tee to allow the oil to go to the back as originally planned or to the front if you had a grapple hooked up. The only limitation to this is you cannot have something plugged into the back 3rd port and the front 3rd point at the same time (which you wouldn't anyway).
With this tee setup you would have all four functions of your joystick (up down, tilt and curl) and a button on your thumb to open/close your joystick or to control whatever you have plugged in on back.
Does what he wrote seem correct to you? My dealer would create a tee to allow the oil to go to the back as originally planned or to the front if I had a grapple hooked up. And this movement of oil to the front or rear would be controlled by the switch on my Loader Handle (BLV10763)? Is this correct? And the opening and closing of the Grapple, and its up and down movement, would be controlled by the joystick? Just trying to understand how it all works. If this is all wrong, please suggest what I would need differently.
