I got this with my D4-12 and don't see any markings on it to make me believe it's BH attachment. It looks too light to be BH. What do Y'all think?

Like none of the Bush Hog blades I have. Almost looks like made from a barrel with those vertical embossments. All the Bush Hog blades are much heavier built, with trip springs.

Agreed, it looks a bit crude and light duty for a BH attachment. It looks like it might be home made! The blade almost looks like part of a barrel.

That was my thoughts, but being a newbe to the BH's, I thought I would ask. I think that the D4-12 would wade it up in a ball first hard thing it hit.

Remember Brian, I have you a nearly complete Bush Hog snow plow waiting for you. Not pretty, and needs some pieces welded back where someone cut the mount ends off, but not bad, especially for free! I have another for my D4-10, plus one for my JB, so this 3rd one needs a home.

That is a push blade for a Snapper rear engine rider.

Really? They made push blades? Hey, I wonder if it'd fit on the Massey 6. Would be a hoot seeing Will try to plow out a Canadian snowfall with it. ;)

They really did. I have one fitted to my Cub 70. Kinda light and no spring loading, I have laid on the hood a coupla times and bent the blade. Now it is reinforced and has a cutting edge welded on. I have used it for more dirt work than snow removal. Oh yea Snapper also had a 30" snowblower for the front of the rear engine rider. I had one for a couple years. It was a pain to get turned around as you have to cut an area big enough or back out and take another bite. It would plow snow very well. I went to a walk behind as it suited my needs better. It did crack the frame on the front too.

Here is a couple links for ya.
