Walker Implement Hitch

We've recently purchased a Millcreek Aerator for our Walker fleet and was curious if anyone has turned the manual Implement hitch into the electric with a linear actuator? Or if anyone has the electric hitch, could you tell me what the numbers are off the oem linear actuator?

Thanks,

Steve

I've heard it's not that great...but sometimes I have to try it myself. Weight is definitely important and I'm guessing around 200lbs should do it. The linear actuator I'm looking to install would serve two functions: to raise the Millcreek up and to also use the force of the mower frame to provide some downward pressure against the aerator frame. We'll see...

Thanks,
Steve
