    What are the electrical requirements of an old conventional plow? I know the electric plows really draw the juice but mines just hydraulic so do I need to beef up my electrical system? I just bought a new battery, I belive its 800CA and 650CCA, my stock alternator is either a 56, 66 or 78 amp unit.
