We got the blade on the 782, over the weekend.  The blade isn't lifting very high. Going to remove the tunnel cover and check the travel of the hydraulic lift.  Here's some pics for y'all to see.  Gonna be pushing some dirt soon!

Allen , nice looking 782 , and that looks like a really heavy duty homemade cutting edge you got on it . :thumbs:

I'm sure you'll figure out your lift issues , I can think of a few things that might be causing it .

That's a good looking 782.  Nice job on the blade too.  I hope you get the lift issues resolved soon.  Thanks for posting those photographs.

Alan, that looks great! You have the same issue I have with my Ford blade. Once the blade goes under the front axle, you lose out on lift! Of course, loose holes in lifting areas can compound the problem!

Had to have a custom lift rod made.  Also had the cutting edge cut down, it was too long.  The blade lifts higher now.

I had the same problem with my QA42A Snowthrower, the lift rod for the blade was to long to lift it, so I used a chain instead.
