That's an interesting release for the positioning dogs. It looks like that one lever is both the release and the positioner?
Your right about it being a stout blade,also that lever does work for changing the blade angle there's 5 different postions.The other nice thing is you push or pull on the lever and you change the postion[angle] of the blade without having to get off the tractor,works really nice.Larry

Larry, really nice rebuild. And if you get another BEE, you can undo what you did... may not even need too, looks like it may work with either one now.
Your right it'll work on either one now.Larry

I have the same blade on my B110. It's very easy to change angles on the fly, the trip springs work smoothly... is built like a tank, but only where it needs to be. It is better built than my JD 54" on myJD318. It is also very robust where it needs to be. After 5 winters of heavy use, I'm more impressed each time I use it. I did redo the angle control rod to length, & twist angle to fit my own reach.
Recently I've noticed that my strong arm mechanism (me) seems to be loosing some capacity! :rolleyes:I have so far added two springs to aid the lift, but eventually I'm going to add a gas spring to get the maximum effect I'm after. It will reduce the down pressure on the blade by about 40#, & add the blade weight to the front wheels, which is benificial when doing a big push. The one I currently have is about a 250# unit, & plan on adding under the engine. I will post the mod when I get to doing the fix. I can't see a major down side to doing this. The advantage of being gas powered is that they are almost linear in pressure throuout the travel. Springs are kinda backwards.
