    Not an expert, but I did stay in Sherbrooke once!!! You will need a 3 spool valve, 1 for up/down with float, 1 for left/right, 1 for the "wings" to go back and forth. You will also have to make up a second controller for running the "wings" of the Vee plow. Just get 2 controllers, mount side by side, and one will only have 1 cable running from it to the valve spool. Will take some thinking but that's the fun stuff.
    bob types in broken FRENGLISH....just like me when I go to Canada....I know just enough French to get myself into trouble, but not enough to get out of trouble....

    Quoted for truth. I'm under the impression that most folks around here think the whole world speaks English. :dizzy:

    I can only speak broken French, I call it "Caveman French" because it ends up translating like "Me call you." "Me hungry." etc. :laughing:

    Bob, it's going to make things much more complicated than the entire packaged system that comes with the v-plows. Setting up a dual control as mentioned would probably be the most simple way to do this, but it sure sounds like it is getting more complicated than remaining simple.

    if you wanted to spend the extra $$ on a solenoid operated valve, you could run it with switches. one for up/down. one for left wing forward/back, one for right wing forward/back.

    a little time,you could make the vplow control work, with the belt driven pump insted of the electric over hydrulic

    what do the plow that run on central hydrulics us?>?
