I have cable on my boomtruck and it works fine. It's the easiest. Use the shortest cable possible and still get long bends. Do you have the bracket for mounting the cable to the PTO? Picture shows one but on a different PTO than yours. It has 2 U bolts for holding the end.I'm actually leaning more towards the cable as I research. McMaster has a knob operated push/pull cable in 10 or 15' for 27 or 29 dollars. Then its just a matter of a a bracket and cable end. Ok, you sold me! I'm going to measure tonight and order up some parts. Will post pictures.
While the 5 ton 939 has a frame problem for an air actuator on the PTO, the M35A3 has room. They cost about 150. Since it's all contained, I may go that route myself on the A3.
