What is a 3rd function kit? If your tractor already has a front-end loader on it, then you already have the 1st and 2nd functions.  The 1st function raises and lowers your loader, while the 2nd function curls and rolls the bucket. This works great for simple loader attachments like a bucket, pallet forks, or a snow pusher. However, some attachments have hydraulic cylinders on them such as a grapple that opens and closes or a hydraulic snow plow that angles left and right. Just like your loader has two hydraulic functions to control its operation, the grapple or snow plow also needs a hydraulic function to control it. This is when it’s necessary to have a third function on your tractor.

How to install a 3rd function kit? With every order you place at Summit Hydraulics, you’ll receive a complete set of installation instructions to guide you through the process. Expect this effort to take you only a couple of hours, so you can accomplish this on a weeknight after work or make it an easy weekend project. The majority of the installation process entails assembling the components, mounting them to your tractor, and routing hoses. Common hand tools such as wrenches, sockets, and screwdrivers are all it takes to install the John Deere 3rd function kits and it’s well worth the effort to save hundreds of dollars vs having the dealer install for you.
