hello new to the forum, recently picked up a mf 12 and was wondering since i cant find a 630 blade and mount for the life of me has anyone successfully adapted a newer or other brands blade onto the massey? Any push in the correct direction to a how to or even a 630 setup forsale is appreciated!

 

thanks :rocker2:

Hi.

Welcome to GTT. :wave:

 

Here are a couple of pictures of blades. The first ones are of an early model. 66-67.

in the 3rd pic, you can see the guide bracket that bolts to the front bumper.

Here is a later version

You can see here where someone welded brackets to the front bumper for extra

strength.

Be patient. They do show up on ebay. I saw one there not long ago.

This thread might be useful. It shows two different ways to mount and control a blade. Thanks to DH1 and FirefyterEmt.

When designing your adaptation, Having the stress go all the way to the rear of the tractor is a good idea. It's the way the engineers felt it was best for the machine.
Good luck on your adapting, keep us updated.

Will,Just out of curiousity how do you know the year of the blade? Is it by the serial #? I never really looked into that.Are they numbered like the tractors?I'll have to look at mine.

Oh... and she looks all pretty, but that plow blade was mighty rough!

I had to rebuild a lot of the pivot system to make it work!

I also built another one for a friend....  I really liked this mounting system in the rear a lot more and built it to kinda help plan out brackets that could also be used for a sleeve hitch set up.   The only problem with this one is that it was a bit too stiff and with the front mount being a little tight!

 

However, that rear mount is pure beauty if I do say so myself!  I even custom turned the mount pin on the lathe!
