Western Plow on SkidSteer

    I have a Gehl 4835 and a western 7.5 foot blade. I would like to put the plow on the skid steer since I have no other use for the plow right now. I know the machine may be able to handle something larger, but it's what I got now. Anyway, do I need some type of pressure relief valve to put inline with the machine hydo and the plow cylinders so that if I hit something, the plow would straighten out like it does on a truck instead of busting a cylinder or a hose.

    Any help appreciated.
