    Was wondering what controllers would interface with the e47 pump. Also is there any way to make the pump raise faster? And lastly how big of a blade can the e 47 handle. As of right now it only has a seven footer hoping to go to at least an eight footer. thanks for any info.:confused::

    Toggle switch, slick stick, touch pad, provided you have the matching wiring harness. Make sure your pump pressure is at 1600 psi. E47 will lift 8 footer with no problem. :salute:

    I just asked the same questions not too long ago.The problem is you have limited movement with the slick stick and the touchpad. The old school toggles seem to be the way to go.Just have to have them in a convenient spot for you to use. And why would you want to have your pump raise faster? But there is no adjusting that.

    What do you mean you have limited movement? Also with the e57 parts replacement it all just bolts up?

    I know I have alot of questions,but I'm newbie and trying to learn. How would you check to see if your pump pressure is at 1600 psi? Also the reason for me asking about it raising faster was while plowing the other day it seemed as the plow was raising slower as the day went by. I think my starter motor is going bad. Also the switch will quit on me every once in awile and I have to wiggle the raise switch to get it to go up. The left and right works flawlessly.

    The E57 pump/motor is a bolt on upgrade.
    If you have the dual toggle switches, just buy a new raise/lower switch, they're cheap.
    To check pressure you need to connect a gauge to one of the angle ports.
    Here's the service manual.. http://www.meyerproducts.com/upload/forms/1-562%20R16.pdf

    I have used all of them but I prefer the hand controller. It's your choice what is easier for you. They all do the same thing and there is not a differece between them. To check your pressure you need to go to the hardware store with a set of quick couplers. What you need to do is a get an T adapter that will thread into both of the quick couplers and then you use the middle part of the T to hook up a guage. Then unhook you plow hose and intall this to see what the pressure is. Let us know if you need more help or if your confused.

    Are you serious? That is the main reason I hate Meyers. Have you ever used anything with a fast pump? If not, you'll change your mind when you do. Slow moving pumps are a waste of time, and time is $$. I'm all Western, but love Boss pumps b/c they're so fast. I have 1 truck with an E47 and all I can say is it's a good thing I never drive that truck.

    My 47 raises pretty quick but what i was getting at was the drop time is what i cant stand...... hell i can get a smoke outta my pocket and light it before the plow hits the ground. I would be happier with faster drop than faster up time.

    From what I remember most of the Dodge Snowfighters, at least in this area, from that time had engine driven hydraulic pumps. If not engine driven, in 1975 it would have been an E47. If your engine driven pump is shot you may be better converting to electric, either a Meyer E47/57/58/60 or a Monarch system. If you have an E47 it's rebuildable.

    I don't think Meyer has them anymore. If you want a new pump your best bet may be to try a Fisher dealer. Used you could look for Fisher also. The engine driven pumps are much more common on Fisher plows. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/FISHER-SNOW-PLOW-HYDRAULIC-PUMP-WITH-PULLEY-BRACKETS_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQ_trkparmsZ72Q3a1171Q7c66Q3a2Q7c65Q3a12Q7c39Q3a1Q7c240Q3a1318Q7c301Q3a0Q7c293Q3a1Q7c294Q3a50QQ_trksidZp3286Q2ec0Q2em14QQhashZitem320332259814QQitemZ320332259814QQptZMotorsQ5fCarQ5fTruckQ5fPartsQ5fAccessories

    for you guys running the e 47 if you want to speed up production buy a meyer e 60.... best pump meyer ever made... way better than the e 57 and they will work with your old controls ....

    I been looking for one. I picked up a f350 flatbed with a md2 with the e47 and i can out and jog around the truck before it goes side to side and up and down. SLOOOOOOWWWWWW. How do you test the motors? I am hopeful the motor is going and that's why its so slow but afraid its just the pump
