I just picked up a manual 48" snow/dirt blade and was considering adding hydraulic controls to use on my 318. Dang, those little cylinders are pricey! I am surprised someone has not offered an aftermarket cylinder to replace them at a reasonable cost. I was just shopping at my favorite store, Farm & Fleet (If they don't have it, you don't need it!) and they have tie-rod style cylinders starting at $65 and going up in price based on length/bore as one would expect.
