I am in the market for a used JD 3033r. I have a couple questions regarding the loader joystick before I pull the trigger on any tractors. I have looked thru what must have been 20 forums on here before posting this because I did not find an exact answer to my question. I have seen most tractors that are on the used market today do not have the grey buttons on the loader joystick. I will be using it for a grapple and a snow plow during the winter months.
Now, here is where I have gotten mixed-ish answers. Does the up/down buttons function go to the 3rd SCV in the rear that are plumbed up to the FEL and move the plow left or right? I have a hard time understanding what would need to be done if the tractor did not have the grey buttons or the 3rd SCV in the rear of the tractor. Would my dealer add the extra SCV, plumb it, and add a grey buttoned joystick? What would need to be done (if tractor did not come with 3rd SCV/joystick with grey buttons) to make it open/close grapple with the up and down function of grey buttons.
Sorry if this is confusing. Please let me know if I can clarify anything. I am pretty new to the tractor world and having a hard time understanding what would need to be done. Thanks in advance!! Also, attached is the joystick I am referring to. Thanks all
