    Well I'm looking for a 4 way or a 3 way solenoid valve To put on my new plow to run my wings.

    Sent email asking a company and they couldn't answer. Told me to call Monday and talk to a tech.

    I found this one Skinner Parker 4 Way Solenoid Valve V933DX19 120/60

    Wasn't sure if would work or can you point me to one that will work

    I want to control left and right angle. Then each wing

    I have the rams that will work.

    Does that 120/60 stand for 120 volt 60 hertz? Or is that a 12volt valve?

    sorry I can't point you in the direction of a valve, but that 120/60 has me thinking that one won't work for you.

    What are you using to operate plow now? Central hydraulics or or standard electric/hydraulic pump? The valve you posted is pressure rated to 50psi, not near enough for what you wish to do.

    Would look at D03 or D05 solenoid valves. Working pressure rating between 4500-5000psi. Can also handle 23gpm.

    Hydraulic solenoid valve D05 footprint. 5000 psi working pressure. 27 gpm maximum flow rate. 4 way, 3 position with all float motor spool (A & B open to tank with P blocked) center position. 12 volt DC voltage with LED indicator lights and DIN connectors. Includes bolt kit.


    Found this one on Ebay but will this run my plow way I want it to

    I don't understand the 3 position part Then the word float.
    Way I read it I need find a 4 way with 4 position or will the 3 position work

    After looking more I found this on that doesn't have the Float word in it

    Hydraulic solenoid valve D05 footprint. 5000 psi working pressure. 27 gpm maximum flow rate. 4 way, 3 position with all ports closed in the center position. 12 volt DC voltage with LED indicator lights and wiring box. Includes bolt kit.

    I am guessing you want to operate each wing individually.

    Now I am no hydraulic expert but my understanding is a 3 position will have to work ports and a flow thru port per spool. Pretty much up-thru-down allowing other hydraulic action to take place while this spool is being activated. Example moving both wings at once. I can double check with a buddy who has a hydraulic shop. I may be 100% wrong, I just know the first valve posted will never work with such a low pressure rating, 3/16 work port and 1/16 exhaust ports.
