I remember reading somewhere  there were different linkages available for the Hydrostatic Models and Gear driven models.

I've got 2 of them, the frames are the same, one is just a few inches longer.

I still have not figured out how to hook mine up either. It is referenced in one of the links in this thread. I need to look into that again I'd love to hook it up to my 1556.

I think I have all of the correct pieces to mount the Hydro-Speed blade on a Tube Frame in all of the possible configurations. I will try to dig them out and take pics for you, Sam. I might be missing the triangular piece that connects the blade frame to the lift assembly.

Here are some more pics of the Hydro-Speed 3-position blade for the Tube Frames. I did have the triangular piece that gets attached to the lift lever in two spots. One hole goes over the pin on the side of the tractor lift lever, and another gets bolted to the upper bolt on the same lift lever. My triangular piece looks to be homemade but does follow the general shape of the OEM piece. It turns out the one piece that I do not have is the short connector from the triangular piece down to the blade bracket when it is mounted under the tractor. I also do not have the scarifier piece that can be mounted to the blade, although my blade does have the mounting holes drilled in it.

 

The two rectangular brackets are sized slightly differently. One is wider than the other. The wider one is used to attach the blade to the rear axle tabs when the blade is used in the rear or is mid-mounted. That is the one that is mounted to the blade in the pics. The narrower one is used to attach the blade to the front axle tabs. Although I have not mounted this attachment on a tractor, I am assuming that the long bars are used as required as part of the blade lifting mechanism.

 Well I have been looking for one and need one for some job so I'm making one as close to specs. as I can to fit a 1476. My blade will have to be 6' so it will clear the high floaters without hitting them. It will be a manual  three positions setup. Should be fun!!   thanks

Too bad this is not being reproduced anymore, it's probably one of these attachments that everyone wants but that few are willing to fork out the $$$ for.
