Today I am working on tractor number three in the workshop. I am building a mid mount grader blade.

  I have the 48 inch blade bent and the cutting edge drilled , bolted on and the ends of the blade capped. You can also get a idea of how it will look in the second picture with the blade sitting under the tractor. Next I will design and cut out the blade circle parts with the plasma cutter. I will have it done by Friday and pull in tractor number four . Also the jd round fender gets a working vertical exhaust stack with a rain cap before it is pulled out of the shop this week. I love the garden tractors with big tractor looking exhaust pipes. :thumbs:

You do beautiful work. What brand paint did you use on the GT? I want to paint my JD111, JD210, and STX38. Thanks, Rick

Nice blade project Don. It will be interesting to see the mounting hardware and angle adjustment setup.

Thanks ,

  Just use the JD yellow and green at the JD Store .

  Here is the next stage as I cut out the parts for the angle mounting adjustment . Never made one before so I have no idea how it will look tomorrow night, :smilewink:

  Each day it is just trial and error . So far no errors, :D

Don,

The 140H3 I just picked up has the factory 54C belly blade.  I can post some photos of it if you are interested.  It has the hydraulic angling kit also.  Not sure about how it all mounts and works yet.

 

Here is the blade parts break down from JD Parts Center web page:  http://jdpc.deere.co...PageServlet_Alt

 

Whoops, the link just takes you to the hydraulic angling kit so you will need to click on the blade itself to see it.

Thanks ,

     Here is how I attached it, I built brackets to fasten to the front mower plate with one 1/2 in pin . so it is pretty easy to hook on. Tomorrow I will build the lift brackets and drill out the holes for the angling pin . I could get it painted tomorrow too. Been a fun little project . :peace:

Todays progress picture shows the painted blade mounted on the 110 . I am pleased how it turned

out. :dancingbanana:

Next I will convert the stock muffler to a upright exhaust stack. :thumbs:

Todays progress picture from the workshop shows the new vertical exhaust stack installed. I love garden tractors with big pipes :rocker2:

    The last project on the 110 round fender for now is I am building a generator belt guard.

The last project on the jd 110 Round Fender for now is I got the generator belt cover fabricated and painted yesterday .

  This pic shows it bolted on .

   Also is a picture of the tractor that will be pulled in the shop tomorrow for some upgrades. It will get rear fender lights, a hood mounted air cleaner and a blade . I got a couple uniqe ideas running around in my head for it :hitting_self_roller:  I'll start a new thread for it tomorrow . :peace:

I already did rear fender upgrade , wheel adaptor and larger tires upgrades , new front spindles .
