    I am wondering if there is such thing as a kit that i can use to convert a Hydraulic plow to the Electric over Hydraulic ... Any Ideas
    I have just purchase an 07 F 350 and want to use one of my plows removed from 99 Chev 2500. But i don't want all the hydraulics pump under the hood and all the jazz...There is no room for it anyway...My plows are in tip top shapes and i dont want to spend extra money buying another one..

    Are your plows Minute Mounts (1 or 2) or conventional mounts (i.e. lift frame is permanently attached to the vehicle)? If they're Minute Mounts, you can pick-up an electric pump set-up that attaches to the headgear. You'll also need the wiring for the pump and controller. Usually, you can find complete pump packages (i.e. pump, motor, cylinders), controllers, wiring, etc. on Ebay

    Hi

    Yes Fisher does sell a whole Insta- Act hydraulic kit, comes with pump, three cylinders hoses and main power harness. You will also need to purchase a new module, and truck specfic harness, and controller.

    I think you will be spending big bucks to swap your old plow over, you may want to consider,E -Baying your old plow and go new
