Got my new blade mounted on tractor, the 990 Cuke Clunker. The blade on this thing is "floppy". The springs, (which may not be stock), pull the blade back at too much of an angle when parked. There doesn't seem to be a solid stop for it. There is two big pins going thru the supports, one seems to do nothing, not sure it's purpose. When I got it, the main triangle frame was pinned on bottom holes, and it layed way back. I have moved that up to top holes now, is little straighter with less pressure on springs. Other bar is in bottom holes. there is no adjustment on the springs like most blades have for tension. No eyebolts with threads say or such. there is two big 1/2" holes in the A-frame on outside edges, not sure what for. Was thinking of bolting a thick flat stock across those to have blade bump into when level. OR, some type of stop welded to that and push on back of blade or support area. Must be something missing on this blade or ME just not understanding how to set it up. Here's some pix.
Second look, see there is spring adjustments on top, but springs are too long really and they are out all the way I bet. Not sure. Was thinking the A-frame should have been in bottom holes, and bump up to the bar on top holes, but it's not close enough for that. Anyone have a manual? This seems to be diff than the one listed here on the tractor mounting at least. Was looking at the 990 stuff. Maybe a later White manual would be needed ? There's now ID tag on this thing either.
