Picked these up today, excited about the find, but the box blade and snow blade will need some work!

Nice find. A box scraper is about third on my list of things to find.

Wow. Somebody must have stored the blade and plow outside since they were new!!! Nice score though.

Nice pick on the wheel weights.  Wheel weights are bringing high cash in my area, so anytime I see them reasonably I grab them.

 

How are you planning to fix the snowblade/boxblade?  I knew a guy who replaced a snowblade section with a chunk cut out of those huge steel drains under the roads.

Thanks guys! I was pretty excited to find the blades. That is what I originally went out to look at. He said they were in rough shape, but I hadn't seen pictures... I almost didn't get the snow blade, but while I was there, I asked him if he happened to have any wheel weights and he did. I walked away with all three, for $150.

I was thinking about the pipe for the snow blade. I need to measure it and figure out what the diameter would be and start my search. For the box blade I am just going to try to find a section of steel and cut it and weld it in.

Not a bad price.  I saw a pair front weights sold for a Farmall Cub (same as the rear on a Cadet I believe) for $75 locally. 

 

Where in VA are you?

On the back of those wheel weights, what numbers are written on them?

I'm near Charlottesville.

Give me a little bit, I'm putting my kids down, and I'll check the numbers on them.

If those are IH weights it will have the logo on it; I think it is across the valve access hole? Not sure exactly. Anyway, I think you did pretty well.

They are both stamped with IH then a L or 7, beside it. There is a number on the opposite side that I can't really make out. I tried to trace over them I think one was 13711? I couldn't really tell on the other one.

The L sounds right. I think I read somewhere on the site that all IH part numbers end in R1. Don't quote me on it though.

I've got a set of wheel weights just like those. Everytime I see them for sale they are between $100 and $150.

$150.00 was a bargain.

 

Make a cardboard template of the break, or bend in the blades and go to your local Fab. shop to see what it will cost to get them broke or rolled to match the original. You will be very happy with the outcome.

That is a good idea. I want to get them apart and really figure out what the need. I think the blade on the scraper is salvageable it is just in need of the back section of the box. The snow blade needs the blade portion, but all of the framework seemed to be in okay condition.

Nice finds! I really enjoy my #40, they work pretty well for as light as they are.
