    How much force on a smart hitch 2

    I have a 7'6" V smart hitch 2 When you hook up and raise the tower how much force does the tower push up with?

    when you raise the tower up it latches in and then raises the front of the truck by pushing down on the plow.

    I used the search on top of the page and the closest I could find was
    1) some guy used to get out of his truck and operate the smart hitch I switch.
    2) a bunch of argument about the weight of plows as down pressure.

    so I want;
    1) push a switch (on the dash or controller or someplace) the pump operates and pushes down on the plow. (for safety only works when the plow is in float)
    2) when you take your finger off the switch the pump stops working AND it holds the pressure in the hydrolysis
    3) Giving blade up command, releases the pressure and raises the blade.
