    I am currently building a back blade for my plow truck and I have found several different pumps and solenoids. Can someone recommend a pump and solenoids to me. I don't want to buy a pump and have it turn out to be unreliable and same with the solenoids. What brand do guys recommend and where should I get it. I was looking at a pump and solenoids in northern tool but im a little bit worried about their quality has annyone used these. Thanks

    Daniels uses Monarch pumps, at least that's what mine is. Never had a problem with the pumps.

    we had a plow with the Haldex setup from Northern, had alot of trouble with the angle locking up. This never happened with the raise/float however, and we had a lot of hrs on this unit. I just bought a monarch on EBAY from surplus center. They are VERY reasonable priced.
