W.R. Long provides valve kits for most subcompact, compact, farm, utility, and light industrial loaders.  Valve kits include the valve, handle with switch, hydraulic hoses with fittings, mounting bracket, and instructions.

Electric over Hydraulic Valve Kit

The electric hydraulic valve kit includes a molded hand grip with a rocker switch, which has three positions.  One position to open the attachment the second position to close the attachment and the spring return home position for no action.  The W. R. Long valve is connected to the power beyond port of your loader valve, therefore if your power beyond port is active when your loader is operating then the W. R. Long valve will operate your attachment when your loader is operating. With this in mind the valve kit is a true third operation, therefore you will be able to raise/lower, dump/curl, and open/close your bucket all at the same time.  The molded hand grip is designed to slide over your loader joy stick and is secured with two set screws.  The kit includes a mounting bracket to mount the valve to the tractor, hoses, and instructions.  We also call this our rocker switch valve kit.


The electric valve is shown mounted on the Kubota L39.  In many cases the valve is located between the right loader post and the tractor.  When practical, the valve is located in the most inconspicuous and protected area. 

NOTE: If your tractor comes with a backhoe as standard equipment like the Kubota L39 then the hose lengths and hose ends will be correct.  If you have a backhoe that is an option or later added on then the hose length and hose end may not be correct since the valve kit is designed for the loader when there is no backhoe present.  These kits are not sized to operate a hydraulically powered motors such as on a rotary broom.  


The bulk head plate with bulk head fittings are shown mounted on a Kubota B26.  The bulk head plate is either bolted on or welded on, depending on the loader.  The bulk head plate kit includes the bulk head plate with bulk head fittings along with two sets of hydraulic quick couplings.  We also offer a kit with hydraulic quick connects with out the bulk head plate and fittings.


Selector Valve Kit

The selector valve kit includes a rubberized handle with a red push button switch.  When the red push button is depressed the hydraulic fluid is diverted from the up and down motion of the loader to the open and close motion of the Attachment.  The kit includes a mounting bracket for the valve and is usually mounted on the right loader arm.  Hydraulic hoses and instructions are included.
