I am looking for any ideas on how to angle my plow electrically. Does anyone have any ideas? I am going to do this with stuff in garage as money is not readily available for this project. I am working with a Cub Cadet 129.

It sounds like you wouldn't be happy with anything less than flipping a switch, huh? If not, then electric/hydraulic would be the most solid bet.
Otherwise maybe consider a mechanical arrangement. I built one for my panzer and it's not much more that a piece of pipe to turn the blade and a cable run to release the pin. It took me a while, but I'm glad I did. I used to have an atv which I couldn't angle from the seat. Had to get off, pull the pin, and swivel each time. So most times I ended trying to find ways to not have to get off and angle it. Now that I can do it from the tractor seat, I do a better job.

I can angle from the seat now, but I always like to improve upon what I have. I have to look and see what I have in the garage. Are there ports on the hydro for hydraulic power? Hmmmmm............

Not on the 129. That's why I had to install the 149 hydro into my 129 for hydraulic lift. The 149 and the 1450 and 1650 hydros should fit as far as I know.

I am thinking electric driven screw actuator made from threaded rod and tubing. I am trying to design the system. I just have not had the time to set out some parts for the layout. Any ideas on doing it this way? I am looking to do this with stuff I have and avoid spending cash.

Will there be a "lock" on the plow blade at different angles or will all the pressure be placed on the angle mechanism ? Reason I ask is because I hit a rock plowing snow last year and broke the hyd piston in the angle cyl. ,, Al

I am not sure if I want to put a locking mechanism on it or not. If I use 3/4 or 1" threaded rod it should not be an issue. I figure using 1.5" of threaded sleeve for an adjuster should be stout enough.

3/4"-1" I would think should work well then . As careful as you try to be there is always something to run into as least for me anyway , :bigrofl: Al
