Rated 2 out of 5 by from Needed modification Unfortunately it didn’t work , would have had to modify with additional fittings at an added cost. I ended purchasingthe piece for original equipment.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from VERY ODD FITTINGS We bought this valve to replace a very old one, however the fitting sizes are like 3/4 NPT straight. Nothing they have or anyone near us fits it.
Date published: 2017-06-08
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Store doesn't carry parts to plumb up. The store doesn't even carry the fitting to plumb this valve. Don't buy unless you want to drive all over town to find the right parts to hook it up.

This can operate more than one device, depending on plumbing and flow.

Will this valve work on a hydraulic motor? Forward and reverse with a load. If so will motor not free spool when not engaged?

Asked by: Matt w
Yes. This valve will work for a hydraulic motor, the valve will also keep the motor in neutral until the toggle is engaged.

will this work on a small dozer for the front blade for up and down

Asked by: rp wheel
As long as the system doesn't require the valve to use closed center, or power beyond it would be okay. This valve cannot be used with either due to the port used for power beyond and closed center is the same that makes this valve convertible. Otherwise it should work fine.

Will this work on a ford 4000 tractor and does it have float?

Asked by: Unger79
Unfortunately, the manufacturer was not able to confirm if it will fit on a Ford 400. This product is does not have a float nor allows for the addition.

Will this work with a ditch flail mower. If not please suggest a proper valve.

Asked by: Nivram
We would not recommend this item for a flail mower. It sounds like the valve needs to run a motor, and the valve on this item has a tandem (cylinder spool) center. We would suggest SKU # 1307351. It is a 4 way 3pos, motor center valve, capable of 21GPM and 3625PSI, w/adjustable relief.

Can this valve operate front loader with bucket that Tilts? Forward & backwards motion on the control valve raise and lower the lift arms and the right to left motion tilt the bucket forward and backwards?

Asked by: Curti
This valve would not be idea for operating a bucket on a front end loader. You would need to stick with a more traditional 2 spool loader valve, and one with preferably a 4th position float spool.

I plan on using this valve by plumbing it into the power beyond port on my tractors existing spool valve. Is this valve capable of operating 3 separate single acting pistons as on a snow plow blade? 1 up/down piston and 2 L/R angle pistons 

Asked by: Dubba
The control valve you are asking about, 220940, is a single spool valve that can be used as either a 4-way double acting OR a 3-way, single acting valve. It is either/or but not both at the same time. The control valve would need to be a 2-spool valve with a 3-way (single acting) spool and a 4-way (double acting) spool. It can also be accomplished with a 2-spool, 4-way valve by teeing the work port not being used into the tank return line. The other option would be to assemble a 3-section stack valve with all spools being 3-way. For this valve you would need: 1 inlet, 1 outlet, 3 single acting spools and a 3-section bolt kit.

would this work on a hydraulic post driver? open center for return flow? one work line?

Asked by: gfmrkc
Yes, this will work on a hydraulic post driver. If you convert the valve to single acting and using only one hose for power up/gravity down, in neutral the valve will still allow fluid to go through back to tank, until you shift the lever to open the pathway for fluid to come back through to the tank.
