    Default source for Linear Actuator?

    Folks,
    I am looking for a source for electrically powered rams (linear actuators) so that I can make the bed on my Gator dump. Does anyone know of a source?
    Thanks,
    Larry

    Used old satellite dishes have them. So do abandoned swing gate operators. I have a bud who just yesterday begged me to give him a hundred dollars for two, two not one, wheel chair lifts for public transit vans. These lifts have a linear actuator that's twelve volt plus a hydraulic pump and a couple of cylinders.

    They're a whole bushel basket of projects for the clever type guy.

    Check eBay. There are usually a bunch of actuators of all different types available. Many times they sell dirt cheap.
