Massey 14 hydraulics

Got an idea that’s crossed my mind several times lately... best way to explain it is John Deere’s h2 hydraulic setup, with separate controls for 3 point hitch, mower deck lift.

Anyone got any good ideas on how to rig up a Massey 14 to have controls for the 3 point and mower/dozer blade lift? I’d like to have them on separate circuits so I can run a dozer blade separate from say a plow or disk on the 3 point

Thanks

With dual hydraulics you'll need 2 cylinders and rockshafts!
Yup, something like that.

Massey 14 has cylinder for mower deck lift, and 3 point hitch, but on same circuit. I’d like to separate them to be independent from one another

You could install a lockout valve, I have one on my JD 316K. I run a snow blower up front with hydraulic lift and chute rotation. I also have a Brinly box blade on the rear. When I just want to lift or lower the snow blower I use the valve to lockout the the rockshaft cylinder, which is linked to the Brinly blade.

The lockout valve only works on one cylinder, right? That wouldn't work here!

I saw a 14 at an auction the owner added a 2 spool valve and had the controls by the hydro lever. He had just teed off the lines by the hydro. I was thinking of doing something similar but put the valve on the fender like the 1655's. And then make a custom cover to put over the valve. Surplus center has 2 spool valves the handles can be mounted so the valve lays flat on the fender. I want to add a hose couple on the front and one in the back.

If I understood correctly, you could add a "6-way selector valve". Those have 6 ports, 2 that are for the pump, 2 for circuit A and 2 for circuit B. They are usually used to split a hydraulic circuit to use 2 implements. You choose between circuit A or B.

There are 2 "versions" of those kind of valves, manual ones with a lever that must be accessible to the user therefore it can be a pain to route all the hoses/tubes. The other models are solenoid controlled, you can install them anywhere and run a wire to a switch.

In fact it's what I want to do on my 1655, I installed the 3rd spool last year and I will install 3x 6-way selector valves to have 6 independent circuits. I will get:
- valve 1 circuit A : mid lift for mower deck
- valve 1 circuit B : front quick connect for JD quick-tatch lift (raise snowblower/blade)
- valve 2 circuit A : rear lift (3points) for misc accessories i.e. counterweight
- valve 2 circuit B : front quick connect for snowblower chute rotation
- valve 3 circuit A : front quick connect for JD quick-tatch angle (blade) AND quick connect at the rear of the tractor
- valve 3 circuit B : front quick connect for snow blower chute spout control

This is the one I plan on buying 3 of: eBay - summit-hydraulics Hydraulic : Solenoid Selector/Diverter Valve, 13 GPM, 12v DC, #8 SAE Ports. The ports are SAE #8 which is too big for our tractors (we don't need 13GPM) but I've never found any with SAE #6 which would be perfect match for the 3/8" JIC. I guess the valve would have been smaller but oh well...
