Report to Moderator

I purchased a Ford 7000 a couple of months ago to use as a second haying tractor. I have since added a loader. I'd like to add a grapple to the loader and was wondering if the load monitor couplers can be used to operate the grapple. My set up is this, I have a single spool vale with 1 set of couplers coming out and then the second set of couplers, for the load monitor. There are to knobs on the lower right side just below the single spool vavle. So, can the load monitor couplers be used to do this or would i have to buy a dual spool valve?

The load monitor can be used for a single acting cyl. if you are VERY CAREFUL! You could be injured or damage the system if --Better yet Keith is right get another control valve.

Keith is correct, the LM couplers on your tractor are basically useless. Get yourself a dual spool valve and you'll be in business.

Simple answer - No.
Notice that there are no levers for that set of couplers? The flow is tied to the 3 point lift arms. Power up, gravity down (with help from the spring). When you pull the one knob out, the cyl and the 3 ph get linked. Even need a special cyl to use with those couplers. The special cyl has a "bypass" in it to allow the cyl and the 3 ph to sync up.
Load monitor is great for certain things, but I don't believe this is a suitable use.
