New Push Button Hydraulic Multiplier
New push button controlled hydraulic out-let "multiplier" lets you run up to five hydraulic circuits from a single set of outlets using a push-button control that slips over your tractor's existing hydraulic lever.
The V & M add-on outlet system plugs directly into any standard set of hydraulic outlets. You decide which circuit to use by pressing a button and then use the hydraulic lever to manually control it.
"Most other add-on hydraulic systems require use of a separate set of switches and levers," says Lee Chedester, sales representative. "Another big benefit of our system is that you can mount the hydraulic multiplier valve bank directly on your front-end loader, bale wagon, swather, disk, seed drills, air seeder or any other implement that has multiple hydraulic requirements. All you need is one set of hydraulic hoses running from the tractor to the valve bank. Eliminates the need for a lot of long hoses. All you have is an electric cable that runs to the push-button control. Most other add-on hydraulic systems restrict flow of hydraulic fluid to 7 or 8 gpm. Our system uses up to 18 gpm flow. Works great for operating a front-end loader and grapple fork where normally you'd need three hydraulic levers to operate the boom, bucket, and fork. The slip-on push button controls let you use one lever to perform all three operations. An optional latching button is available on the control handle for operating orbit motors."
The hydraulic outlet multiplier can be used with either open-center or closed-center hydraulic systems. It can be used on almost any make of tractor, and can be switched easily from one tractor to another.
A 3-valve bank sells for $925.
