Are there three ports on this valve and can the flow go in both directions?
A: There are three active ports, with an alternate port for the inlet. Flow travels from the inlet to one of the outlet ports or the other, depending on spool position. Flow is allowed both ways between the inlet and the selected port. Flow between the outlet ports is not possible in either position.

I'm looking to be able to switch my hydraulics from picking this disc up and down to lifting my rolling baskets up and down, which follow my disc. Both have 2 hydraulic lines, one in and one out. I only have 1 set of hydraulics on my tractors. I have to un hook and and hook up the other. Is this what I want and is there a electric one where I can just flip a switch from my cab?
A: It sounds like a double selector would be more suited to what you want to make happen. In a manual version, try items 9-4128 (1/2" NPT), 9-6131 (3/4" NPT), or 9-6132 (1" NPT). For electric versions, try items 9-5117 or 9-5117-A (SAE 8, individual or primary circuit selection); 9-7738 or 9-7738-A (SAE 12, individual or primary circuit selection); or 9-8602 (primary circuit selection). Flow rates vary between the items, so know what your equipment is putting out when choosing.
