    It's Sunday so I can't call any dealers to check prices.....does anyone know (approx.) what the toggle switch on the plow side of an 810 (part # B62038) runs? Finally working on getting my two plows melded into one. I'm just at the beginning so I'm sure this will be the start of a long line of questions....bear with me! :mechanic:

    Yes. The switch located on the plow, left side, that activates the draw arm.

    Ummm. Look there was just a thread in this. But you can buy a boss switch as well.
    I did pick up a few online for about 15 each

    That switch is an a class all of its own , I was quoted 56$ from one dealer and 86$ from another, if you try and remove it to look at it they fall apart,the DPDT switch isn't a common switch for anything, but it is available from other sources, its actually used in airplanes, so if you go search on a airplane parts supply store you can find it, its a sealed switch, I found one that works just fine the part number is T7-211E1, its just an otto switch, perfect fit , only difference I found was the QC blades were grey or zinc colored instead of brass, here is a link where I found mine, its in Canada , but you get the ideahttp://www.aircraftspruce.ca/catalog/elpages/t7toggleswitch.php

    Thanks for the replies but what's the difference in wing operation between the MOM-OFF-MOM switch and the On-Off-On switch?

    On off on. Are always on in the 2 positions. The mon switches ate spring loaded and return to the center when you let go

    I guess my question was if you leave the wing activation switch activated, does it keep the cylinder under pressure (pumping?) With the On-Off-On left in the on position would it be detrimental to the cylinder? As opposed to the Mom-Off-Mom....or am I just making too much of this switch thing.
