Took a trip some weeks back to Rick Shows place to pick up a tractor he was holding for me that I will show you guys at a later date. Well I was there I got a good part of a tube frame mid mount grader blade and a NOS husky pup snow blade,

 

I am missing some parts to the grader blade if any one knows were I can find them let me know or I will make them.

Nice grab. My first blade was that husky pup snow blade and I adapted to fit my 1053. Still have it but recently got a tubeframe plow blade.

 

I want to know more on that belly blade/grader. How it works and all.

Nice blades you have there. I'd like to find a mid mount blade at some point. But then I'd have to buy another tractor. But that's not a bad thing right? Lol

Nice mid mount blade. I've got the same one as well as a rake. I hope you find out how to attach it as I am missing the same parts as you are. Here are the parts that I have maybe it will help you to figure out what we are missing?

Okay. I am getting a better understanding of this now. In the 4th pic that shows two frame pieces bolted together, the piece on the left is the rear section that mounts on the transaxle ears. The piece on the right has mounting holes on each side for the lift lever unit. Each tool (rake/blade) bolt to the piece on the right from underneath  with the center bolt/nut and the outer openings are for angle adjustment.

 

Your pics helped a lot, Husky. Thanks.

 

Maybe wilberj will be asking for measurements of that piece on the left that looks similar to a sleeve hitch. :)

Oh man, that is a great observation. When I get time I am going to try to separate those two pieces and put the rear one on the transaxle like you suggest. I'm not sure just how mounting that onto the transaxle will do much here. I'll have to experiment on the right side piece that goes to the lift lever as I am not sure how this would all hook up. How nice it would be if I have the necessary pieces to mount these. I'll be happy as a clam. Keep you posted on this thanks!!

Nice Jerome, Now if you would have stopped by I would have sent a NOS snowblower home with you for the pups.

Correct me if I am wrong. Looks like the guy that fabbed this one made it to fit both the LF and Tubeframe. That would account for the smaller sleeve hitch like piece that is not attached at the moment. The real long lift rod may be for using the blade mounted to the rear of the machine. Also the 2 "L" shaped pieces may be a bolt-able lift attachment to the blade frame so the lift rod can attach and function as a back blade?

Another observation about the lift for tubeframes ... The lift hookup will need to be the type of mower deck hookup that uses clevis pins under the tractor and the rear.

If any of you get your mid-mount or rear mount figured out could you please post some pictures. I would really like to get mine hooked up especially with my dirt driveway  :D  I've got spare mower deck lift parts if I need to use some of that to get the mid mount hooked up.

What the guy has in the photos is right for the blade.  The blade was made factory to be used on the front, back, and mid part of the tractor.
