Alright here is a parts breakdown for the conversion.
2" angle iron @ 14 1/4" long.
1 1/2" unistrut @ 20" long ( my piece is 24" long, I will cut it or use it long to mount a strobe light?)
1- 30amp momentary DPDT toggle switch.
1- 6" Actuator ( mine is rated @ 500lbs & 1000lbs static weight)
14G wire @ 20' roughly. Can always go to a thicker gauge.
Package of wire loom to protect wire.
2 3 1/2" L shaped brackets Homedepot sells these.
1- 30amp inline fuse (auto parts store)
30amp fuse.
1 quick connect( you will cut this in half)
1 Pkg of 1/4" connectors to plug into momentary switch

Thanks I tried to get my wife to record it but she's getting over the flu. Otherwise I would have dissassembled it and put it back together real quick.

Thanks, i can't watch the video here at home due to my internet acting up. But the little bit i saw i think i can make one based on your design. I'll look at it tomorrow at work to see it better.
Great if you have any questions I'll try to answer them the best I can, with pics or video if needed...:thThumbsU

Very nice, and thanks for the parts list and the links. I'm bookmarking this page, as I can see trying to do something similar myself in a year or so depending how this year goes.

Looks awesome. Nice fab work on the electric sleeve hitch.

Wondering too how the Brinly sleeve hitch cultivator works? I have the box blade and really like it but want to buy the cultivator but just haven't bought one yet cause I didn't know how well they work.

They work great if you put the plow shares on them!
