I have a snow plow on one of my custom 10s but if my SS15 turns out to be a good tractor I want one for it,just waht are the differences between one for a custom and a suburban since I have never seen one up close.

Don't think diff?? Most sears had a slip in the front design. You remove the mower idler on it's slip in mount and then the blade slips in same spot. Had for many years that system. Later ones have much bigger linkage and lifts, not sure when that started though.

The custom series and the suburban series front attachments are different. Unless you plan on modifying the one for the custom, you will need to find one for a suburban.

Here is a pic of the Custom style front end. It has the 4 bolts and there are other attachment points on the tractor behind the front axel. It is a lighter duty front than your new SS15.

The front attachment for the Suburban is arguably much easier to use and also requires less attachment points for most implements. The main attachment is a slide in piece. The following picture is of a front weight, but it will be the same for a front blade.

Yea Jeff, MH81 pretty much summed it up, Subruban blades use a mule drive slide in attachment, cutoms are bolt ons. No custom front implements will work with a suburban.

I think there was a couple designs or version of the front blade, but they will all work, just upgrade type design changes
