    Actuators help!

    I found a guy selling two 12v actuators for $100. I am thinking about using one for my snowblower lift on my X570. How can I tell what the lift capacity is on them.

    Look them up on the internet by manufacturer and model #, That should get you to the specs for them.

    They are rated for 100lbs. So not big enough for my snowblower.

    The ones that I have seen use an adjustable spring that takes some of the weight off the pivot point so the actuator can then lift it. You'll be hard pressed to find an actuator that can lift as much weight as a snowblower and do it reasonably quick.

    You would do better to use a some winch, many have done that to make the blower lift by electrical means versus manual lift. What you use actuators for would be more for chute rotation or changing the chute deflector angle.

    RonRol,

    They make actuators to lift 10-12k pounds for a price. .

    I picked up a winch today at Harbor Freight to play with and see how it works. Just have to take some measurements and make a front bumper to mount it on. Couldn’t beat the price for $50.

    Depending how big they are, might work for the deflector shoot.

    They are about the length of a 20oz soda bottle closed and rated for 100lbs.

    Guessing you didn't want to spend $498.00 to Lift Your Blower. But since You Bought the winch Look a Bercomac Blower with electric lift Manual. It Might give you some Idea of How to run your winch to lift the Blower as a winch Is what Bercomac uses to Lift there 44 & 48inch Blower
