Bought this 42" mid mount grader blade and rake last week. Only 4th or 5th one I have seen. Has the mower deck style lift too. Also came with a 42" York rake. Everything is in great shape and works as it should. Not everyday that you see one of these. Mounted on my 350-hour all original 18/6

Wow, that's a great find. That's the one with the screw adjustment that does blade skew, isn't it?

(nice ride you put it under too)

That's cool.Did you take pics before you mounted it? I want to build one, just need to see how they built it.

Nice find! :thumbs:
I think I would like to have a mid-mount grader for my WH GT's...maybe someday I will find/build one.
Guys say they are great for leveling dirt & gravel, but not very good for snow removal.

Thanks! Yes it has a couple controls. Obviously the up and down, side to side. It has a bolt/knob combo to control blade pitch. Since its the mower deck style, there are different locking positions, unlike the dozer style lift which is all float

I think we have the manual for that one. Excellent implement on a very nice tractor.

If I find the manual, I'll link it.

Yes I have some that I took. I just need to dig them up again and I will post them. Its a heavy unit... must weigh 100lbs at least. The York rake is a solid 40lbs by itself

Nope, not in there yet. The other style is, but not that one. I think I have it, when I get a break in the action later I will look for it. May be tonight before I get a chance tho.

Attachments -> Scroll to Sears Graders -> Mid Grader... thats the only one I have found so far, and its for the dozer style, which I think is older

Congratulations. That is a great addition to that really nice 18/6. I'd like to see photographs when you use it.

I went thru with Windows search and can't find it. I know I had at least an exploded view of it, but I can't even find that.

Is there a tag on it with a readable number?
