    Hey guys,

    I got a new one for ya.

    Im trying to mount a meyers E-47H Pump on my conventional fisher plow setup. The problem is that the E-47 dosen't have enough lift in the vertical ram to raise the plow more than five or so inches off the ground. I was wondering if anyone else had this problem and if so how you fixed it.

    Thanks ,

    Ryan

    they did make an e47h and you could swap parts to your e47 all you need is -15204-cylinder tank-15205-cylinder-15206-ram-15760-spacer-everything else is the same,those are meyer part #'s

    Did you ever figure out a solution?

    I did exactly the same thing.
    Old Fisher conventional & an E47
    It lifts about 9" off the ground....

    I plan to use it just for personal use, so it's good 4 now.

    but wouldn't mind it higher...

    gotta put on my thinkin cap...

    you could make the lift arm longer....so it has a larger travel distance even tho the ram still extends the same amount.

    I was thinking of moving the piston back, so it picks up the fisher arm higher.. maybe..

    why not just slip a pipe over the ram and a piece inside to get the height you want

    The Meyers pump only raises 6"

    If I slip a pipe over the ram, you still get 6" of lift... you just adust the chain differently...
    I think the only answer is to set back the pump as suggested.

    I will try to get R done this weekend & post a picture with the result..

    Made a new mount to move the piston back farther.
    Works great now. Lifts the A-frame right up to the stoppers.

    just checkin in...

    its been a while.

    the old fisher/meyers hybrid is still doing well.

    but I DO need an angle cylinder...

    if anyone in connecticut has a good used one... give me a PM
    or if anyone knows the best place (cheapest) to get a replacement...

    thank you. Thumbs Up
