Cub hydraulic power angle plow

Mon Oct 25, 2004 9:45 pm

I was wondering if anyone has had any luck with or has seen a hydraulic power angle setup for the front plow blade on a Cub. I think it would be great for doing snow rather than getting on and off the tractor to pull the pin to turn the blade.

Cylinder

Which cylinder did he use. The pump on the Cub is only rated at about 2.5 gpm( I thought) at 2500lbs.
Is that about right.

Pump is 2.8 going by my GSS-1411 Blue Ribbon book and 1,100 to 1,500 lbs. Mine is 1,000+. He use a 1 inch cylinder with a 8 inch stroke. One second for full stroke. Check this to figure out hydraulics.http://www.surpluscenter.com/Hydraulic.htm
