    Ive got a 12ft plow id like to switch from machine to machine. However some of out machines dont have aux hydraulics. What is a good 12v hydraulic pump that i could use to angle the plow only?

    Search Monarch Hydraulics. They may have been bought out, not sure.

    I was thinking they might, havent had a chance to get the computer out to look. Someone else had also mentioned a dual acting dump trailer pump but i wasnt sure.

    Is it just up down, or also need angle function?

    Would an older meyer e47 pump work? Just found 3 of them at the old shop. Not sure if ot would have enough pressure?

    It doesnt have to be super fast. Im almost wondering if i couldnt just use one of these old plow pumps. I would obviously only use the angle function on it. Just not sure if they would handle a 12ft plow. If its questionable id rather have a fenner or monarch,

    This would be more a matter of ram size. If yours are close to those used on Meyer plows I see no reason it wouldn't work. Meyer used 1.5"x10" or 12" rams.

    It would also be very simple to wire up a Meyer pump for just angling. There pumps go left with just the motor and right with motor and C valve.

    I might just try it with a meyer pump i have here. If it doesnt work ill just have to buy a good pump.

    Left and right would be find for elect. However these electric pumps would be slow in lifting and might not even have enough force(pressure) to lift that thing if it had a lift cylinder. Hence the reason larger setups have central hydraulics with very large voulme pumps. Note; Pressure equals force and volume equals speed.

    The plow that im planning on using is on a 3 point. So the machine will do the lifting, i just need a pump to angle. I plan on switching the plow from my schedule loader to my tractor or my payloader they all have three point mounts. but they don't all have auxiliary hydraulics. this is why I am looking for a pump to turn the plow only.

    Look for a double acting pump as well. I.E. power up power down is what you want. They have a relief built into those that you can set the pressure.

    Ive been told anything from dual acting dump trailer pumps to fenner or monarch. I might try that meyer pump. I guess if it doesnt work im only out a few days waiting for another pump.
