Pictures of my Super A/A60 Power angle modifications

Postby 49willard » Thu Jan 19, 2023 9:29 pm

These are pix of my recent modification. I used a Danfoss 1500-BG and a 2" x 8" double acting cylinder and a power block from TM Tractor. First good snow is tonight. I am in the process of mounting Fisher type shoes. I fabbed brackets today and will install tomorrow AM before plowing. The power angle works great

Very nice install and the tractor looks great
When you only have 9 horsepower you need to know the names of all of the ponies!

One suggestion I would make on the choice of a double acting cylinder for a super A would be to consider a 9 or 10 inch total stroke. I purchased an 8 inch stroke which guys use on a Cub however the A60 Plow frame is wider coming from the tractor such that I do not quite get the plow to angle to the final hole going left or right. It works fine for me but a few more degrees of rotation of the blade would be available with a longer cylinder stroke.

That's good to know and thanks for posting that. Sometime in the future someone is going to want to do the same modification as you and now when they search this forum hopefully they will find your post and choose to use the longer cylinder. There's lots of info regarding doing the mod to a Cub but not much for a Super A.

An 8-inch stroke is the standard for a lot of ag applications. You may find that a slightly longer one would be harder to find or a lot more expensive. You may be able to set the forward cylinder pin hole slightly closer to the center of the blade and pick up a little more range.

Jim,
I agree with the much more common 8 inch stroke. I have my cylinder as close to the plow frame as possible to maximize the degree of swing. My clearance to the frame is just 1/4 inch at the critical point of the stroke. In my case I can easily live with the small difference in the swing provided by the 8 inch cylinder. I am off by a half of the hole where the pin drops in normally to lock the plow in the maximum angled positions.
