I acquired this front blade in a trade and it had been made to go on the front of a JD 212, but I had no need for it.  I wanted a rear blade for my SS 14 and so the brainstorming began.  I originally was going to mount the blade to one of the cultivator tool bars I have, but in looking at it further the blade had the anglr feature so I removed the bracket from the back of the blade and made a bracket so I could use it as a rear pull blade with still being able to use the angle feature.  I have everything welded up and have made a trial run and it work great!  Here are a few pics before painting:Attached File  Attachments_2013429.zip   14.51MB   98 downloads

That's a really nice build. Does it have enough mass to do what you want? Also, you might need to do a couple of gussets from the bar back to the frame. Keep you from bending the bar if you hook on something.

Thanks for the pics.

Nice grader blade! I agree with Alan on the gussets, just in case. And maybe a way to add some weight if needed!

Looks Good! A rear Blade is very useful, You will find many used you may never have imagined.

Like MH81 & kenny Gusset it We tend to abuse things like we never imagined.
