    it is possible, but you will need a six way valve that is remote mounted. you will also need a much larger oil tank than that power unit has.

    You need one or a couple of remote mounted spool valves. I did it to the sam type of setup years ago with and old western with manual angle and a dayton pump setup. Pump setup was power up and power down. I added and wired in another switch to just change the flow of pressure to another cylinder to angle the blade.
    If done right your raise lower switch will pull the wings out and in when the second switch is in the "wing" position and raise and lower when in that position. I would use a switch that has a momentary on position for the wings and "on" position for raise and lower.
