the other day i was out plowing and noticed a fair amount of fluid on the ground coming from the ram. looking like the ram is pitted pretty good and leaking past the seals. I've read that it uses the same ram as the lift cylinder from the large frames? question is i believe the lift cylinder has large pins that attach it to the steering bridge and the rock shaft? the pins for the plow are only 3/8" bolts if i remember correctly when i was tightening things up a bit during the summer months.

i've put in an e-mail to rick to see if he has one for sale but if i can use one from my parts tractor i will do that to get me back to plowing.

I'm thinking I have seen some of the plow set ups with a spacer and a smaller bolt and nut,but don't quote me,I'm almost positive if you look its the same part number,I'll try to look and verify that

I believe they are the same but the one on the angling blade and the one used on the tractor has a different part number for the cylinder.

The blade used 1719818 and the tractor uses 1724512

I have a brand new 1724512 on the shelf but have no way to compare it to the 1719818

Ok, just pulled up some part numbers,they are the same cylinder,if you look at the early LF(1250) it list the number (1719145),same as the power angle snowplow number(1719145)(samsbolens site) the later number like on the 1886 tractor it shows a newer part number(1724512), but I know from selling a lot of LF stuff they are the cylinder,

The part number for the complete cylinder is 1724520. The 1724512 is just the rod. As for the snow blade they also used a 1724520 and is the same as the lift cylinder of the tractor. So if you have a good one on a parts tractor it will work for the blade. Just make sure the fittings are angled the correct way as that was a difference in the to. If you don't have a good used one I have a few used ones and some new ones if you need one

bob pm me a price for a used ram with shipping to 49419 please. thanks.

i have another plow so i took and installed it on the 1886 for now. i had to weld on a plow foot temporarily so it works for now. i did have a lift cylinder rebuilt on the parts tractor but want to keep that together as long as i can. the other parts tractor has the pin stuck in the pam on the steering bridge side so it's going to be a pita.
