    Default Frontier front blade

    I have a frontier blade that goes on my 4720 loader arms. It is a manual angle right now. There is a 500.00 dual cylinder kit to make it hyd angle like a truck snow plow. I wonder if I could just install some brackets and use a single hyd cylinder like most people do on a rear blade?? What do you guys think? I have an extra cylinder like is on my rear blade. All I would have to do is extend the hoses.

    This is the type of cylinder I am talking about that I have laying around.

    I wouldn't see why that'd be a problem. Go onto eBay there should be photos you can look at as a reference. Just make sure when you angle the blade that there are no obstructions. Let me know how you make out. I've got a 3720 cab tractor with a deere front blade manual angle.

    These are photos showing what the blade would be like if I paid the 500.00 for the kit. I think it could be done with the single cylinder and weld on some mounting tabs...

    It can certainly be done, but two SA cylinders would be a stronger setup since both side of the blade would be supported. What size is the blade?

    7ft blade. I agree that 2 cylinders would be stronger but really dont want to spend 500 on a kit for a blade I use a few times a year.

    Understood. Then modify your plow to accept 2 Meyers or Western style SA plow cylinders-they can be had for +/- $50 at Bailey's or eBay.

    Thanks Kenny!! I knew you would know what to do...How do you plumb the cylinders with only 2 hoses?

    Simple. The valve will see the two SA cylinders as one DA cylinder. So one (1/4" is all you need) hose to each QD, if it moves in a unexpected direction reverse the hoses.

    Yes I need to install an electric diverter for my rear scv. I use it currently to angle rear blade plowing snow. So if I understand correctly I run two hoses from scv to blade up front and one hose into each cylinder. When fluid goes into one cylinder it will push back out of the other and vice versa??

    Thanks Kenny
