    Has anybody adapted an older western unimount v-plow to work with a bobcat? I have an s650, and came across a cheap blade that was used on a truck with central hydraulics. Im not sure if the hydralics could be made to work? Any ideas? I think I need two hoses to each ram...

    I did it with a valve about $240 one switch or you can use the electronic plug on the boom if you have it.

    i saw it a couple days ago, I got the valve from force america. it has two ports on top that you run your hoses that come from the skid two on the left and two on the right. left,right wings
    The valve is always open to one wing until you put power to it than it goes to the other wing
    for this valve to work you need two way cylinders on the blade like western has not like boss with oneways

    I have built two v-plows for skids, they work great the one I just built is 11'

    if you want the part# i can get it tomarow
