So the taxes are out and I'm waiting for the return. I'm figuring my budget for my JD 112 build. Want to hit parts while the cash is still in hand. I have decided I want to build my own sleeve hitch with a linear activator to lift it. This brings me to my question. How much travel do I need and how much lifting capacity. Bearing in mind I hope to make a snow blade eventually and use the same actuator on it. I'm eyeing a 4" actuator with 300 lbs. lifting capacity that fits my budget. What your opinion.
Thanks in advance for you help.
