Bought a 54 inch plow for my 300. It was in really rough shape but have almost got it fully restored. I want to make it a 4 way which requires an angling cylinder. Trying to find an original JD is very pricey here in Canuck land. I can get an offshore one for $90 new and since I have to fabricate the brackets anyway fit issues do not matter. The big differences are the eyes are welded on to this cylinder and its bore is smaller than the JD. Anyone have any experience/advice either way on this? Or if someone has a cylinder they'd like to sell maybe we could strike a deall.
Thanks for the help!!
P.S- if somebody could fix my picture- we do not drive our machines upside down here.

You could send that plow to me, free and you pay the shipping, if ya can't use it. I could put it on my 140H3 to try it out. Then I would let you know how it works !!!!!

But really, princess auto may have a cylinder for it. Small cylinder won't have the same push power as a larger cylinder. But the smaller one may still be strong enough to hold the blade steady.

Another idea is to find a snow thrower. The lift cylinder maybe the same as what you need. Then you could switch back and forth when needed.

You could try Alz Welding, he sells a complete angle cylinder kit.

I THINK this is the same cylinder but has a little longer shaft.  http://www.ebay.com/...9wAAOSwFfhXjiDe

It was his profile photo that was upside down Kenny. I rotated it and replaced it with the same one right side up.

Good price on that.  I checked at www.surpluscenter.com for options but this is cheaper.

Thanks everyone. I was able to land all the parts here in Canada for under $200 Canadian. The ALZ welding kit was perfect but with dollar exchange and duty it would be way over $500. I only payed 200 for the entire two way blade! I'll have to fabricate brackets but I like doing that kind of thing anyway. The cylinder I have is a little small in the bore- princess auto deal which is like harbour freight in the U.S. - so we'll see how that goes. I'll post a picture when I get finished.
