Well I was once again digging through the archives and found some pictures showing the grader blade that could be attached to the front, center and rear of the Bolens Tube frame Tractor.
Hopefully this will come in handy for people as a reference.

Nice job Brian:yelclap:It's good to have all this info for future reference. I was thinking about a front sweeper for the tube frame i'm sure there is one?

It sure will, if you had posted that pic when I was doing my back blade scarifier teeth, it'd be made like those. Much simpler that what I did. If I ever have reason to re-do it, I'll look for these pics:D

Thanks "Doc"

Nice photo selection.
I had a grader blade on a tractor once and it was a very useful tool.

Sweet. This is the post I was looking for earlier. Are those pictures of your blade by chance? I'm trying to find measurements for the pieces I'm missing.

Hi Bolens1000 thank you for that post. I actually made a reference to your post on blackjackxx's post asking about that blade. I have the same blade and also the york rake. What I don't have is the small pieces to hang it in the middle. I'm not sure if it is supposed to lift up/down using the tractors lift system. I towed mine behind the tractor in the past but it would be nice to mid mount it and use the tractor's weight like it was made to do. I could try and take some measurements of pieces if anyone needs them.

Edit:

 

Since this is an older thread I should also add that the red grader in the pics is the aftermarket one I was talking about. I believe a guy custom made all the linkages using some of the original parts from an existing blade.

I've only seen 1-2 in All my years of Collecting.

I would love to find one of those someday. They would be great for shows.

 

They were also made for other brands as well.
