12v actuator vs Linear Actuator

Whats the difference between the 2
I working on a rear plow project for atv
Needing atleast 300lb down pressure
Needing be kinda fast I hate to wait on it to go down
I know it wont be as fast as Hydros
I be happy at half speed of hydros

So can someone teach me something

There is no difference from the info you post. 12v actuator is powered with 12 volts. Linear means it runs in/out via a straight line.

well when you look it up there is actuators and there is linear actuator and they both look the same
But a actuator is screw driven direct drive and a linear is gear driven non direct

Here is a good definition of linear actuators

We've got a wee bit experience adding actuators to plows. But all on the front side! Good luck!

That's a Rhino. If I remember, they use it to clear ski/sled trails.

our little project

Our club owns a Rhino that we built an all-way blade for. Here is the thread which has many photos posted in it..

http://www.plowsite.com/showthread.php?t=110574

This is used to roll snow which removes air from it and make the trail flat. Not really clear it off but to shape it the way skiers desire......
