    Default Need solenoid air valve advice

    I'm building a power drawbar for my mill, I intend to use a single acting spring return air cylinder and a modified butterfly impact. I want to use a solenoid air valve to make it all work together. The impact needs to run forward and reverse and the cylinder needs to activate when the impact is running in forward or reverse. I really don't know what valve I need to make this all happen.

    So you want two solenoids, one for the impact and one for the single-acting air cylinder?

    Assuming that's the case, I would use two identical valves and just cap the one pressure port.

    Take a look at this one: McMaster-Carr

    After thinking about this for awhile, I decided you would be better off buying a power drawbar kit. A generic one runs about $500 and a Kurt is less than $1000.

    By the time you figure in all your time and parts you'd be way ahead to buy one. Plug-and-play at that point.
