2 spool double acting hydraulic valve

Post by Showman »

Hello does anyone know how and where to connect up a double acting spool valve block as I want to use the Super Dexta this year to operate a Browns 56 bale carrier? Pictures or diagram would be good. Thanks.

If you're lucky and able I recommend a DAR valve, but they're rare and expensive. There's also a DAV, but those are even rarer and more expensive. Probably easier to get a suitable block plumbed in to the external service port and put the return through a modified repro filler cap.

Thanks Sandy - sorry for late reply. I was going to send a photo of the top control unit but can't see where to upload. The top control unit has a unusual fitting screwed into the housing, forward facing and looks like a male push fit connector but this may just be a bodge from a previous life. I only need a constant feed to plumb into a double acting lever box and send the return back into the casing. I wondered if I could use the outlet with some different fittings to connect a feed to my lever box? I don't need the 3 point linkage to operate whilst using the bale carrier.

For pics try this: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=5024&p=53955#p53955
I can't say much more than I said without a pic but it sounds like the std. external service plate will do you, as before use a modified repro filler cap for the return.

Can't see it I'm afraid. I suggest you try this: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=5024&p=53955#p53955
