    Loader control valve

    I replaced my leaky old 145 loader control valve with a joystick. I had to fabricate a bracket to change mounting to vertical. It also got the lever a bit closer.

    Nice! Is that a 20 or 30 series tractor?

    My old 2030 is 45, had it 25 years now. I wanted an 830 or 1530, but couldn't find one for less than $9K back then.

    Post some pictures of the whole tractor

    Would you be willing to post the part number of the new joystick? I need to replace the valve in my 146 loader and am thinking about going to the joystick also.

    Thanks

    Very nice modification. Did you install a closed-center plug in your new valve?

    This is the valve I used, it was $100 cheaper that the 2 handle valve.

    One problem is that, in order for float to work, and mounted with the hoses pointing forward, it works backwards. Moving stick forward raises loader, back lowers and float. Curl and dump can be which ever way you hook them up. It's not really a problem for me but, for someone who uses hydraulics a lot or has another tractor with a loader it would be annoying.

    I would redo the mount so I could turn the loader valve around. Cut the rear plate off. Shorten what it came off. Weld it back on and turn the valve and bolt it back on.
    I have two tractors with loaders and would want both to operate the same.

    I did consider doing it that way but, the hoses would then come out my side and I would have to use all new hoses, it would have also put the lever much further away from me. Since I only have one tractor I don't really see it as a problem.
