Default Ramp control on Bruder trailer

Hi all
I have a question if anyone knows if it will work or have a video of it?
I have been looking at this Kit https://www.ebay.com/itm/30481991730...mis&media=COPY
from piggytaylorto to make a mobile ramp on my Bruder trailer.
But I would like to do it remotely using this one
https://www.ebay.com/itm/30413344976...mis&media=COPY
And then run it on a 6v battery pack.
But has anyone seen it done or tried it??
Greetings Ren

Something ate half of my reply, trying again

Ramp mechanism description includes these videos:

Contact the ramp seller about how many amps the gearmotor takes, or ask for part number so you can find a datasheet.

Contact the controller seller about how many Amps the winch control is good for, or what the largest motor you can use with it. Most of the 1/10 winches just use N20 gearmotors with a lot of ratio

I have seen both videos and have also asked him if it will work, to which he could not answer as he had not tested it himself. But trying to ask him about engine data.

Then there was a message about motor data, it doesn't draw much power. Here is what piggytaylor wrote:
stall currant is .81 amps ,no load currant is 0.046, speed currant is 0.194 at 6636 rpm

motor is mfa com 918d 12 to 24 volt ratio is 30 to 1 ,

One thing I have learned in this hobby is sometimes you just have to "try it" sometimes it works...sometimes it doesn't.. If you can afford to drop 15 bps on an experiment I would try
it... I doubt that motor would pull a lot of amps just raising and lowering the ramps
I bought two of these to try to run a Bruder conveyor belt... haven't tried them yet....

Also think I just have to try my hand, the worst that can happen is I burn the contact and have to find another solution.
