    This is the reason snobear tossd the flexblade in the crap pile. All the other lifts were winches this on they decided to go to a linear accuator . Either go oldschool and rig a winch to it gonna be alot of amps and hard draw will kill an electircal system. Or get a real plow or pay more attention
