    Skid steer plate and still run electric or hydro? Plate and electric is remove lift cyl and assembly and attach plate and run electrics. Remove wires from lift and lower coils.

    Plate and hydro needs a block to replace the motor/reservoir.

    Thanks for your advice Jerre. Is it something I could tackle or something a professional should do? How far is Erie, PA from me lol. Is it something you have done alot or better yet something you would be interested in doing? would you need the tractor as well?

    After some research I think I want to use existing electronics on the 8611. Originally wanted to hook to loader arms but have seen many with the plow mounted to the frame and am leaning towards that. I want to also go the least expensive route... Holler at your boy
