As the title states.


I am thinking of moving the deck lift cylinder from its original position to the snap fast bracket in order to lift a dozer blade and snowblower.


This would eliminate building and routing a lift linkage from the mid mount position.


The snowblower pto box, pto shaft and steering linkages all consume any straight line access to the snowblower and dozer blade for a lift linkage.


By relocating the deck lift cylinder I should be able to come from above all the previously mentioned obstacles.

It would require fabbing a mount for the cylinder and adding longer lines.


Your thoughts.... :help:

Sounds like a good idea... after all that how the power blades work. Go for it and post up pictures.

That a lot of work just to lift the blade or snow caster.

All you need is the mounting plate and the rod to make it stock. 

I have seen the plains for both on another site it would not be much work

I'm new hear and I don't know if I can tell you witch site has the plains.

I have seen the parts you need on E-BAY for not to much cash.
