Hello all,

In your vast experiences and knowledge, how common is the 54C mid grader blade. What price ranges do they sell for?

Thank you!

If you do find and buy one, I have the Operator's Manual and Parts Catalog for it. I could scan them in and send them to you.

Hi Harlan, I am planning on getting one this Friday. I would really appreciate a scanned copy of these documents! Thank you!

This is a power angle cly model. Great validation on price. I saw it on CL and realized it is worth pi king up because I might might see another for quite some time.

Thank you,  I will check to see if the rear mounts are available.  I am not clear on what the mounts are or what they look like.   Here are the pictures from the CL advertisement.  It looks like there are two locking pins on the rear of the blade frame.

They have three bolt up holes and a hole for that pin to latch to and I don't see them in the pics,They get bolted to the tractor and get forgotten about

I did some looking earlier today and see exactly what they are.  (Picture below)

 

 

I can see how they would be left on the tractor.  I may need to buy some.

Mark,

 

The rear brackets are available through Hapco. Not sure of the price tag, but I believe they are made by the same guy that Kenny is talking about.

You probably noticed, but just to be sure, the left-hand and right-hand brackets are different and have differentpart numbers.

Good news!  I just received confirmation from the seller that he has the brackets and will include them in the sale.
