Have snow blade on mine now and it doesn't stay up by itself and is heavy to lift. Would wear you out on an outing I believe. Wondering if there was a spring assist or if one has to make a weight box to put back on rear lift to assist? Guess that could be done in back. I'm not seeing points to really mount any springs to and not sure what others have done. I know I have seen this problem come up somewhere on forums, but haven't found those postings as of yet. Any ideas?
Also the skid feet on my blade seem dumb. Mine had one on it and other worn off. I had a shop make me two new ones just like the good one I had left. There's no adjustment tho to the mounting. One 3/8" hole in the strap metal that mounts where last edge cutter bolt is on blade. These are just an arced 5/16" flat stock that I guess you must bend to position then to adjust? Seems like quite a bend needed on mine, so really gonna try to make another bolt hole instead. A slot would be best, but I have difficult time making those slots in heavy metal and usually make a mess of it. Oh, well, will have to mess with it and see what I con do for another hole I guess. Any ideas on these? Need pictures?
