 JD 4115 spools

Hi, please forgive my ignorance, totally new to tractors and their workings so may use words I don't actually understand.

I am looking at buying a JD 4115 with loader & cab, looks to be ideal for what I want apart from one thing that may be handy and I wanted to ask/check, I don't believe it has a spool valve at the back (aka SCV I think)

Am I right in saying that if I wanted to hire/use a post knocker then this tractor needs a spool valve to power it? I presume the spool valve powers the lift on the knocker somehow, would I be right in saying that this can be overcome by a Power Beyond Port kit, if so is there is specific part number or is the kit quite universal.

What I really would like to know is if the PB kit is a solution and if so should I just contact my local JD garage and ask for a quote for fitting it. Wanted to check here first so that I don't totally embarrass myself as a newb when contacting them, thanks in advance.

I think the issue, more generically, is to install rear hydraulic outlets to operate (what we would call) a post driver. They can vary across makers, so you should first know what your pounder will require.

However, if what you'll be driving are what we call metal T-posts, using a helper to hold it and the bucket to lower it would be faster and cheaper. If they're wood, a rear post-hole auger might serve you better.

Thanks, yep agree a post auger probably looks a better/easier option.

Just be forewarned, a PTO auger is the greatest invention man ever invented for finding buried rocks. Wink yeah right

If the flighting catches a rock and threads itself down past it, you'll not be impressed with the job it is to either manually turn the auger backwards with a large pry bar, or to dig it free.

Stay ready to pounce on the clutch at the first hint of trouble.


Best of luck.

Which leads to another point. Some larger tractors' PTO can be operated in reverse. Could be useful for auger work.

I am asking the pros here: if the tractor has FEL on it could he not use those connects to run a rear mounted hyd auger and have the ability to reverse the direction when it hits rocks or roots?
