    Default Single battery on one pump

    I've lurked around and couldn't find an answer for my question. I have 12v motors, solenoids and dumps. Everywhere I looked on a LiL it says that you need to run at least two batteries on these and send 24v to the switches (so it means dumps and solenoids) and to the pump motor. My question is: what will happen if I run only one battery per pump and just use 12v on switches and to the pump motor? In the end of the day it does says 12v on all of them. Is there any flaws in the way I'm thinking? Ed: I have a midsize and it's pretty light. I don't need hydraulics to work to fast. tried to spin motors directly form battery and was satisfied with speed.

    I am always disappointed with answers such as those. That's like saying life-gate trucks can only use 24VDC. I used to hop 4" on 12VDC, way before anything was pressurized. Are you going to run more than 1 pump to the front? You can find 12 VDC dumps.

    Nope, one in a front, and one in a back. Isn't delta dumps already 12v?

    Value manufactures make them in all kinds a voltages, someday post your setup, please. You'll get good action with the right motor. The coils also matter, but the motor in IMO the best way to go.
