So clearly I do not have the utility blade for my 448 that is consistent with the operator's manual in my file. I believe this is a blade that, unlike the J-Blades, does not use an adapter for the lift arm, but instead goes over the front axle. I've searched for an appropriate manual to no avail. Does somebody have one they can send me electronically, or might somebody give me some pointers on properly mounting this blade. Cheers in advance!

Hey, Any chance you could snap and post a few pics. It might help with the identification but also we all just love looking at pics.

Also on the list of fun things to address, the angle locking pin was last removed prior to the Civil War.

Agreed, but the task at hand is getting it on our 448 :-).

Got a 4 lbd sledge? That seems to be the answer to lots of questions on this site? Oh, that and PB blaster.

That looks like some sort of re- worked hand lift mis- mash, not a "snap fast " mount that should be there to mount onto your 448....

On the maual lift, the lift arm should point towards the ground, and yours is at 2 O'clock.... And that sub- frame is not exacly right. SO, does two wrongs make a right? LOL

Has the tractor frame been modded to accept this blade and mount somehow?

The frame does not appear to be modded, but this is my first CASE, so what do I know. ;-) I'll take some pics. I can mount mount securely to the frame using the snapfast pins and the mounting pins, but, as you said the lift arm is in the wrong position.

.....and another link for you to look at. Go to page #4. BTW, it looks like this started as a 448 but somehow finished as a 449. Not sure what that's about.

I've seen that page before. I think the guy goes by the username grummy on a couple other forums. Pretty neat modifications and fab work to get stuff to fit his needs.

I think it is in the right position and does in fact go over the axle. if you google eastman ingersoll, you will find the company that currently has the rights to the case garden tractor line and produces the ingersoll tractors. They have manuals for most of the older tractors and impliments on the site. Another good forum is GTtalk has an absolutely Terrific Case Forum, that is why I am a member here..com.
