Does any one have a good source for 12 volt linear actuators? Also what stroke is needed for a sleeve or three point hitch application?
Thanks in advance for any help

A friend got his actuator for his home made compost turner from a junked hospital bed. He got 2 from a bed that was scrapped. You might check with a local hospital supply/rental place to see what they might have.

I pulled mine from a JD round baler in a junk yard. I also have two from a hospital bed but they are 120 v ac so I don't have a use for them yet.

Norther Tool has a couple and I've seen them used on 3 points and a toyota tahoe dump successfully.
