 Rear Hydraulics on L3010

I'm tempted to install rear hydraulics so I can try out a modified rear blade that I saw at one of the local Kubota dealers. They take a regular basic BEFCO or Bushhog blade and weld lugs on it and put a hydraulic cylinder on it. You then get angle adjustment on the fly. They get $150 to modify the blade plus the $$ for the hudraulic cylinder.

The big money comes in putting rear hydraulics on my L3010 - which is another $500 if the dealer does it.

Anybody put a rear control and outlets on themselves? I already have a Great Bend FEL on the Kubota. Do I need to go with Kubota parts or will the Northern Tool catalog work?

 Rear Hydraulics on L3010

I have been reading alot of forum letters about how people have put rear hydraulics on there tractors. I have come up with a very simple solution on my B1750 HST that I have used for over 10 years. This is for people that have a FEL. I use a reversed grader blade for pushing snow and was tired of getting on and off the tractor to change the blade angle. So I bolted an old cylinder on that I had gotten from work.
To put hydraulic power to it I purchased a hydraulic selector valve from northern equipment fo $85.00 I routed my bucket dump hoses to the valve and then ran 2 hoses to the rear of the tractor to power the blade cylinder. You then put 2 short hoses from the loader valve where the bucket hoses originally came out of to the inlets on the selector valve. I mounted the selector valve right next to the loader control handle.This way the original hoses from the bucket reached it without any hose modification. With the selector valve button pushed in, the FEL operates normally. When I pull the selector valve out, it diverts the hydraulic flow from the bucket cylinders to the lines going to the rear cylinder. In this position the loader valve bucket function then controls the rear cylinder. It is very simple and sounds like it would work just fine for the application you are describing. For a rear hydraulic operation using one cylinder or two in tandem this works just fine and the system is safe as it uses the relief valve on the loader control valve.

The only drawback is that you cannot operate the bucket and rear cylinder at the exact same time. The lower and raising of the of the loader arms will continue to operate as normal. You just can't dump the bucket with the selector in the rear position.

Good way to go for some increased versatility and some saved costs. I will caution that the more restrictions ie; valves, fittings,and couplers installed on the hydraulic system the less work that it might be able to do because of volume and pressure drops.

Hello Art,
What you say is probably correct but I have never noticed this if it is ocuring. I use the grader blade with hydraulic turn and I use a log splitter I made that uses tractor hydraulic and mounts on my 3pth. I have used both of these with this setup and have never had a problem.

Thanks for the suggestion. It looks like it might work well for me. We have a local mom-and-pop equipment manufacturer, Ringo Hill Equipment, who makes blades to order. I can probably get them to throw in welding on the lugs for free and they are $150 to $225 less than BEFCO and Bushhog on a six or seven foot blade. I can buy the cylinder myself from Northern Tool and the diverter valve and hoses. It looks like a great solution.
