    check the eletrical specs on the auto solenoid. be shure it can handle the Amps and duty cycle rating for plow usage. i've heard mixed feelings on this issue. u can always try it!

    a plow solenoid is the same for the most part. as long as it has the 2 small trigger posts your good. AUTOMOTIVE solenoids will not work. they do not have the duty cycle, and some of them are not wired internally for plow use.
