    Has anybody checked out the website lately?
    Looks like the winter wolf version of the snowbear plow now has a new electronic ram to lift the blade.

    It would be cool if the offered it as a kit at an affordable price to retrofit our older plows.

    I thought I paid around 1000 bucks at Sams for my plow.
    Seems like a lot for just the lift.
    oh well.....

    I had a Snowbear with the winch on my 1999 and my 2004 Tahoe I certainly got my monies worth out of it, even assisted my commercial plowing friends but I could not stack with it.

    The new winter wolf needs to be under 2000 to compete with a economy full angle plow.

    all I could see from the picture, is that it is a linear actuator. You can get a 12 inch stroke, good for 110 pounds at Princess Auto, for $150 500 pound static load.

    I think the 110 pound capacity actuator, is not enough, so Princess Auto does have a 500 pound capacity one with a 12 inch stroke, for $269. Anyone have any thoughts about how well this would work? I wonder if anyone has the specs for the snowbear one. I do not have much experience plowing, with last winter being my first, but I enjoyed it tremendously. I am looking for any modifications I can make to mine, to make it better, and any advice would be greatly appreciated

    im not sure but would think a 500lb actuator should do fine seeing as the whole 84 inch plow only weighs about 300 --- i too would love to know the specs on the one they use -- i have already thought about making the pivit assembly

    new winterwolf lifting mech pics.

    Hey guys I thought I'd post this so you all have a bit more info for this new actuator. I just bought the new winter wolf pro with the actuator. I think by looking into the actuator info in the pic you should be able to find out more info. I do know it is made just for snowbear, it says snowbear actuator on the top embossed into the metal.
