    Does any one know how to size hyd. motors. I am trying to size one to power a snow thrower on my skid steer. Any help would be welcome. If you know any motor types and model numbers that would be great.
    Thanks, Cfish

    the thrower should tell you what gallon per minute flow is required. the skider info will tell you your flow. does it have aux couplers already?

    thrower

    The thrower is a old 3-pt. it is a reverse v stile,with a blower fan at the bottom of the v. It is older than the hills and has no markings on it.
