Looks like you're making good progress. Are the other valves and goodies on order?

This is great stuff. When I daydream about the perfect tractor, it inevitably has an H5 arrangement. Even with my current H3, there are situations where I could see how a 4th or even 5th valve would be handy.
Will this arrangement allow for independent mower deck lift? Or, put differently, will you get the 3PH off the same spool that runs the deck?
Got it! I like your plan. Will the joystick valve have a "float" feature? Also, would there be any way to have position control on the valve that will actuate the 3PH?Thanks UT!
Yes, I will have a two separate and independent controls/lifts. One for th 3PH and one for the mower deck.
The joystick will control any front mounted implements (loader, blower, blade, broom etc.) The two levers that are already on the tractor by the steering wheel will control the mower lift and the rear hydraulic outlet. I will be adding another lever beside the seat close to the tool box to control the 3PH.

Grandpajay, that is an awesome 400. Have to ask... what will you use the hand hydro control for now that you have foot pedals? Maybe an H6 spool?:sidelaughRlowe,
I did mine a little backwards from your plan. I added the 4th and 5th spools on the fender and use them for the 3ph and deck separately. That leaves the tower controls all available as auxiliary. Someday I hope for a loader with a grapple or other wild ideas. Controlling deck and 3ph individually from the seat is great. Jay
