    I'm looking to use an E-47 pump that I got to power a back blade up and down.....was thinking about just using the angle portion to do it....my problem is that I have no idea how to wire it using just toggle switches to activate that...will it have enough power too?....any suggestions?:mechanic: thanks for the help.

    Controlling the angle is easy, just need a double pole double throw momentary toggle. Motor only in one direction, motor and C valve activation together in the other direction. Although I don't think you'll find the E47 to be adequate enough for the job. Not really the best choice.

    Why not use the up and down as is .. be better or are you going to use a double acting for power down. Tryed to find the wireing on the Meyer site but have not located yet ,,,,,,

    The thought process is that I was going to use the power angle so that I had power up and down...better for getting packed snow up....the pump happened to be a really good find so I couldn't pass it up...if I don't use it for this I was going to use it for the stump grinder project I'm building and use it there in it's original form...up/down and angle...I have the double throw momentary toggle so I'll be testing it today...the back blade at this point with no paint and most of the wing down is around 275lbs at this point. thanks for the help guys...I'll let you know where I wind up with this.
