    You need 4 remotes for a snowing. Most guys use a loader joystick for raise, lower and and angle. Then 2 remotes for the left and right wings.

    Horst makes the best mount you can buy but we've built quite a few. You can check my album out for some idea's Snowings will work on a loader but it's hard to keep them at the proper height so the cutting edge is flat. Alot of guys around here do run them on farm loader with out problems though. Just need a good operator.
