Electric Angle IH-54 Blade

Postby outdoors4evr » Wed Jan 30, 2019 1:56 pm

Seems like a lot of people build a hydraulic powered angle for their IH-54 blade, but I don't want to tap into the hydraulic system on my numbered loboy. Has anybody built an electric (12v) powered angle for their blade?

Is there a How-To on the hydraulic angle? Perhaps I could figure out the proper length actuator starting with the hydraulic design.

I'd also be interested in a how-to on a hydraulic angle. Bump for your thread.

Just curious, why don't you want to go with hydraulics?

1) The tractor is a numbered lowboy so it is already 12v
2) The hydraulic system already has a 3-point hitch and a diverter
3) Seems like and electric actuator would be easier to power than to put in a remote hydraulic.

Check Surplus Center, I recall them having several electric linear actuators to choose from. It probably won't be real fast acting but it should work. Beats the heck out of climbing on & off the tractor!

I leave the plow angled to the right since that’s the most room to push all the snow. I just push it on the lawn as far as I can. One year we had so much snow I was almost out of room. So I push it farther now. My new place if farther north, colder and more snow.

Mother Nature hates me, at the old place or new place I get more snow than my neighbors do. They get inches I get feet. Lol
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.

Find an actuator with 8" of travel. Should work good for you.

Since this topic popped back up, I'm thinking about this...
Mount the actuator and the motor controller to the plow. Run a 12v and ground back to the battery (through a fuse)
Use the remote to control the actuator.
