Hi Everyone,

Picked up a 318 this weekend that has a flow diverter valve on the left hand side of the tower. Anyone have a quick explanation of what it is used for?

Also still looking to find anyone with a Model 44 Loader manual.

Thanks for everyones help!

It cuts the flow off to the rear lift cyl so if you use the blade it does not slow the angle action

Just like Littledeere said above. I had one on my x475. In my case I had a 3pt on the back that I needed to isolate from the blade angle cylinder.
