    ok so my work has a brand new 825i gator, they also purchased the plow package for it. Now the kit does not come with anything for angling so we were gonna make a custom actuator to allow it to angle without getting out of the cab.

    has anyone tried mounting a actuator on a manual angle plow, if so post pics

    i too have the regular john deere plow, and am looking to do the same thing, i am gonna try and do something with those 2 brackets with holes that are not used on the plow, measure how far it is from the blade, and try and find one that fits before i toy with weldings plates on the tubing. i would love to hear your ideas, because i suck with actuators. how do i rig up 2 actuators so when i turn left, one pushes and one pulls?

    All you have to do is wire one side backwards from the other side. The 2 wires coming off the actuator are for in and out movement. When power is fed to one it will move out, when you hit the switch the other way, it sends power to the other wire. Honestly, you don't really need 2 actuators. One good one will work fine.
