Larry, are you asking how hard it would be to add hydraulics to your snow blade?

Does the tractor have hydraulics?

Larry, I haven't looked a manual blade in quite a while, but I do have a couple hydraulic blades (54) to give you any info off of if you need it.

Larry: I am assuming you have two spools on your 314 as I do on the 318(some of the 318's had a third spool/lever). To get the hydralic lift and angle you need to add another spool and run the plumbing to the front of your tractor.. I only have two levers and my brothers 420 with the 54" blade has a third lever to control the angle.

I considered doing that but the price of the blades(they seem to be hard to come by for ther 300 series and very pricey up here) (It's easier to find them for the 420-430?) and adding the spool and plumbing was more than I was willing to pay. Now that I have the Ford 1500 it's completly out of my mind. That's not to say I have not considered adding a front blade to the Ford? On that I think I would adapt a small pickup blade withe electric/Hydralic control.

J D the truck is sounding like a good idea . I just have the 1 lever with front hyd and deck lift . I would just have blade lift . I don't need hyd angle but would be nice .I did find a complete 54 with angle and lift for $650 but it was a complete rust bucket . I asked if they would take $400 but that was an ab solute no with no counter offer
