    This a project that I made up over the past few months, Made the lift and push plates from scratch, used a ATV blade and modified it by adding a box that housing the elec / hydraulic pump. The set up was custom made for a 1998 Suzuki Side Kick, wanted something that was more than a personal plow and less than a full HD set-up, so we modeled it after a Meyer set up. It utilizes full size cylinders and a Fenner pump, quick disconnect lift frame, A-Frame and harnesses, Meyer truck-lights and sealed hydraulic system.

    This has been a fun project, best part is the looks from other plow operators! lol

    As they say in Mayne, It Works Pissa!

    We tested it on the Valentine's Day Storm, pushed 8+ inches two pushes with no problem!

    We finally get to see what you were wiring that Barns pump for! Looks like it turned out great!

    Nice job. I have a Fenner pump set up on my 85 Chevy pickup. I use a Fisher mount with an old Heavy Dimaond 8 foot blade. I have found the Fenner very slow when going up. It takes about 6 seconds to full up position. It is fast from side to side though(3 seconds). Is your set up fast. It probably is because of the light weight set up you have.

    I would say the speed on the lift is normal, it isn't a Boss by any means but its as quick as any E60 or Insta Act.

    We call this the side walk plow, lol, in our area certain cities and towns require you to plow the sidewalks along your property frontage, its perfect for the city!, It also does well on the drive ways, did mine this morning, 2" of wet stuff scraped right down!

    It mounts just like a Meyer EZ Mount, two pins in the tubular lift frame, two pins in the plow ears to the push plates. The lift cylinder also has quick pins, we leave the lift cylinder attached to the hoses and the plow blade when its removed.

    As they say in Mayne yes sa! Pissa! ay yup,
