Hydraulic Solenoid Valves

Recommended Posts

For those of you wishing to experiment with hydraulics on your tractors, don't over-look solenoid valves. They can be mounted anywhere on the tractor (inside frame, under hood or seat). The switches can be mounted in the instrument panel, or even used with a remote control. Sure beats unsightly, bulky, and hard to mount manual valves. There are a wide variety of solenoid valves available, in a wide choice of pressures and flows. Solenoid valves can be "stacked" in a bank to control separate implements or cylinders independently.

I think most solenoid valves are just on-off deals. I forget the name of the proportional control electrical valves, but they are considerably more expensive. Of course, you could use a solenoid valve in conjunction with a flow control, but it would still be basically on-off, or on-off-on. I'm going to do a bit more research into the possibility of adding a full hydraulic implement power system...I think it will come in conjunction with a repowering of my 7016 with perhaps a bit more powah...thats "Maine Jargon" for balls....

Most of the electric valves like the one pictured have adjustable stops in the valve to control the flow. Parker is one of the company's who sell the variable electric valves. I think they are manufactured by Rexroth Not positive though. Ron Thomas #3

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
