I have the 46" JD blade with no tractor for it. I had it when I used my long gone LT to push snow. So my question is, what should I do with it? Its in great shape. I thought about building something else with it. I'm looking for ideas and opinions from everyone. Thanks.

Have a tractor with a 3 point? Make it into a back blade! I have been looking for a 5 footer that I could make into a back blade.

Trade for a different attachment. Or if you like to do any fabricating you could fit it to another.

I don't have a 3 pt. I have a sleeve hitch. I thought about a back blade or even making a grader box but can't really think when I will ever use it. If someone wants to swap me for a JD 43 blade, I would good with that. The one I have is for a JD LT. The 100/L100, so on series mowers. It has the complete mount and handle for lift and pivot. I was thinking of making a front trip shovel from a 43 blade for my 112. Any takers?

I guess no one is interested. Hmmm, I want to make it into something. I guess a back blade may get more use than a grader box. I don't know yet though.

If you were closer, I'd look into it. Maybe you could build a different mounting for it so it would fit what you have? Got a pic of it?

There is a nearly new one sitting in the garage, I intended to make a rear blade for the 318. Now that I have a 6 ft rear blade for the Ford I'm not sure what I'll do with this one either, but it's sittng in the corner when I get a flash of brilliance(Hmm Those don't come as often as I get older?).

Is this one of those ones for the L130 or similar light tractors? Has the mount for on front that will quick-attach if left on and has that real ong handle with the turn release lever? Takes two foot longer arms to operate and flexes to the next state when using it? I've had that one on my JD for 5 years and it has never broken really, but sure isn't much of a blade. The blade itself is OK, make a rear blade with it, or the grader box, which works better on gravel drives. The mounts and controls don't get MY vote at all.

Grumpy, you hit it right on the money. The mount and controls are not much to speak of. I used it quite a bit when I had my 115 auto. The blade is good and I think would make a great candidate for a rear blade. The mount and controls are on the other hand are good for scrap. I could easily make a rear blade just not real sure when I will use it. I also thought about trying to massage the mount a bit to fit on my RF 112 using the factory lift. I don't know yet. I have a 265 freebie I'm wrenching on right now till something lights up in my head.
