"Special" plowing trick

Recommended Posts

Anybody else make a foot pedal to operate the hydro-lift for plowing ? I found I was short a hand, only having two and made an easy foot pedal--makes it go much smoother while making those big banks !

Kirk, Right hand is needed for the hydro stick on the tranny. If it is a 3-speed or shuttle, gears can be shifted with the left hand. Ran into this problem when moving dirt with my AC716H. Didn't notice a problem when using the same blade on the 61 Wards because I could use the left hand for the lift and to shift gears.

On my 3416H, I need one hand for the lift, one hand for steering, and one hand on the hydro control. The level slips back to neutral if I don't hold it. I am missing a friction ball, but it is too cold (Okay Marty maybe not for you) to work on it outside. Rick.........

Mark Suggestion Resize your pictures to 640 x 480 and get rid of the symbols and spaces in the file name Read the posts on posting pictures and fixing Red x and diskette. PS. I think I will just start deleteing Posts with the Red x or diskette instead of repairing them as no one can read directions.

Mark, I'm with you on the lack of hands problem. Been wondering since I got the 4040 why Simplicity never came up with foot controlled hydro. What you did is fine for single control hydro lift but for 2 spool lift, the hdro trans needs foot control. MPH
