i tried pushing some snow the other day, but.....  picked up a new to me snowblade for my J D 420 this last summer, got it all hooked up and went out to push snow in the driveway a couple days ago.  Second pass and I noticed hyd fluid on the ground.  Dang it!  I broke the back fitting on the lift cylinder...when I raised the blade it hit the bumper and cracked it.    this 420's bumper has the cutout to allow space for that fitting, but it was turned up instead of to the side.....  I will replace the fitting and turn it sideways this time......I finished out the driveway with my snow shovel.....

It's a CargO-Mount spreader off a L-series JD mower I found on eBay.

I just came in from 2 hours of plowing that white stuff, wind blows it right back where I've been. I got a wide path to the outbuildings, cleaned off the apron in front of the garage, made a few passes down the driveway, but the wind is covering up faster than I can plow, so I gave up before I got frostbite. Wind chill -6 when I started.

I've found the best time to grade the gravel drive is right after a freeze when it thaws, a rain helps too.

conditions were near perfect last night and it was above 50* so hit the drive with the old Sears. Man, this crush limestone packs like concrete in some places.

 

 

I may have to make a thread for your ideas about some type of new grade attachment. I have to go in reverse to dig with the teeth or box just bounces like crazy and does no digging.

How's this for counter weight? I didn't want to carry the bag of rabbit food from house to barn :rolling:

I have a clam shell driveway and it's the same way.

Look at your teeth! They are in backwards! The point is toward the back! Add some weight on top.

They are backwards because I have to do it in reverse. It doesn't matter if I turn them around and add weight, it still bounces like crazy. I'm thinking part of the problem is no down pressure to hold it down and if I put too much weight on it, then I cannot manually lift it.

If I would just get my MF1855 running with the hydro 3pt :wallbanging:

You want me to come get it? That way you won't have to worry about it anymore.

I got to use Alice some today. Aaron wanted to level his shop floor better (it's a dirt floor). Had a good amount of drop side to side. So I hooked the box blade up and we got after it. Ended up taking the high side down about 6-7". to level it. Fun working inside a building, but we got it done. 

Aaron shot a couple short videos and here's a couple pics.

My homemade rear box blade does the same thing, digs going backwards, wont dig so good going ahead. its just the set up of the linkage I think. My ford has down pressure, and doesn't help. Front dozer blade same thing, blade digs going ahead ,but not backing up.  Just a thought.

If you lengthen the top link, the back will dig in. Shorten and it digs going forward. Post a pic of it!
