An old snow plow unit might work too

I'm wanting to add hydraulics to my Snapper 1600 to operate the 3 point hitch I installed this summer. Right now I'm using an electric actuator that came off a Craftsman GT6000 that operated the sleeve hitch and it's not strong enough to lift my disc plow or a three point tiller. I have an electric hydraulic pump (12 volt) that came off a 18 foot Sea Ray boat. It was used to raise and lower the out drive. Do you think this would be strong enough to work?
Is it the Mercruiser powerpak that is secured to the transom, or elsewhere in the engine compartment?
If so, I'd say yes. I've seen people inadvertantly start to lift the stern of the boat off the trailer, by powering the outdrive
into the ground. I have a power trim unit off an older 115hp Merc outboard, that I'm going to do the same thing with.
What are you going to use as a cylinder?
Do you have the togglt switches too?
