    i am looking into building a back blade and am wondering what type of cylinder i should be looking for in order to have down pressure. my design is simular to a snowman back blade, in the way that the cylinder is positioned. Please let me know and thanks for any input.

    need to know the length of cylinder you need. 8" or 10" is usually standard.
