Hi guys, since you were very helpful when I asked about the cab so I thought I would ask about this too.

 

I know there was an option offered for the YT tractors that is an electric implement lift (as shown in the middle of the attached picture) and was wondering if anyone here had it? I am curious how well it works?

 

I have been looking for one around me and online and haven't found anything. There was an NOS one a few years back on Ebay but I didn't have the blower at the time so I didn't need it (coulda, shoulda, didn't). The system Gilson used for the blower takes a lot to lift even with helper springs and it being adjusted

 

Thanks in advance guys

 

Mikey.

If your good at fixing stuff you might get this one working.It's off of a YT16.

Looks like you can remove the tube and fix it easy enough.Alot cheaper than the $150-300 they usually go for lol.

 

 

Or if you have the money buy that one for the bracket and this Actuator motor for $175.

Hi Eric thanks for the reply. I have seen the ebay one available, but being broken who knows it could be a paperweight. Usually it seems the actuators strip out a gear in there and then they are toast. At least that is how it goes with the actuators on the Sears Suburban 3pt hitches

 

Thanks

I just bought one that's 16" open, 12" retracted, for $55 free shipping, works like new.

Good to hear toppop! Sounds like a pretty good deal to me

 

I will see how this winter with the Armstrong lift goes (since I didn't get to try it last year) and may make my own electric lift set up next year

It's a 1500 lb unit, I only wanted around 500 lbs, but for the price I couldn't turn it down, I'll just be sure the limit switches work so I don't tear something up. Still working on the hitch.
