That looks like MF 3.4. Same as mine.
What do you need to know my friend?

I think it might be a MF 5.4....Don't really know. It is 12 feet wide. I need the main lift cylinder numbers or unit. I don't know length or diameter yet.
Thank you sir,
Chas

Howdy All,
I'm hoping someone has one of these or is much better with the net and can find the specs. I'm needing the numbers of the main lift cyl and/or the pin lengths of full up and full down. The hydraulic lines would be easy to have made but buying a cylinder is kind of guess work. I had a member that had a set up but don't really know if it is exactly what I have.

I guess I could always just measure full down on the stops and up util it binds but having real numbers would make it easy. Looks like most hydraulic companies need pin type, diameter and length....open/close.

Thanks,
CHas

Chas,
On the Unimog Exchange, item # 35, BW Swede has a Schmidt quick hitch with a hydraulic cylinder for sale. Maybe he'll sale you just the hyd. cylinder or he could check the cylinder length for you.

Heck, for that price buy the whole kit and have spares or make a front 3pt.

Thanks Yarr and others. I've been in contact with bwswede about his hitch. It is a great deal. His is from the snow blower mount and I haven't been able to figure if the ram is the same. My unit is also larger/different at 12 feet wide, than a 3.4 so I didn't know if it took a different cylinder. I will check with bwswede and see if his cylinder is the as Yarr's. I think it is but still won't know for sure about the 5.4 difference......I'm caring less and less about that.
Thanks All,
Chas

Howdy Yarr,
Does it appear to you that the mount is the same on both of the plows? Is the only difference the width and height ish....?
