I managed to coerce Caseguy into picking up a Craigslist MF630 blade for me. It's just the blade tho & I'll need to fab some of the parts. I know a couple of you guys have done some of this before so here come the favor request. By reports, I have part #'s 1, 15, & 16. the rest I'll have to make. Does someone have one off their tractor & wouldn't mind taking a couple of shots with a ruler in them? There's a pic or two & a dimensional of part # 13 on here, but I'm at a loss for scaling the main rod & etc.

Thanks in advance!

There's like 2, 3 different variations of this, the one you show is 2 piece main push bar but most a 1 piece. Basically it's a heavy 2" pipe that is used for the main push bar, goes from the hitch at the back to the blade.
The vertical part that goes in front of the bumper, doesn't touch the bumper, 1" clearance.
It just fits in between the bracket that mounts to the bumper and stops the side to side motion.
That bracket has a lift assist spring on it, you don't need it, mine doesn't have it and it's not hard to raise.

So, apart from figuring the linkage on the angle, the rest is good at a guess. Thanks, i really appreciate the info. Doug, do you mind if I load those pictures in as a manual?

No problem I don't know how to do that so I just post pictures of the pages.
Hydro and gear drive are different lengths, my front bracket is 2 pieces of 2" angle iron to stop the side to side motion.
If you like I can take it off and take pictures tomorrow of everything, it comes off easy.

Wow, that'd be fantastic, but no rush. I won't have it for a week or 2.

Thank you!

Mine isn't mounted right now. I can take some pics when I get home from work tonight. Doug must have gorilla arms because the blade takes some effort to lift and the lift assist does help to an extent. I had to make up the pieces for the front guide on mine.

When you mount the blade, the lift arm under the tractor has 2 holes in it, one is for the mower deck the other is for the dozer blade.

Well, from what it sounds like, you will need to fab up 90% of the mounting system. Here are a couple threads for the one's O have built.

That blade was made out of necessity, at the time I had nothing to deal with the snow, I just used what I had lying around and put it together. It's being beefed up 2x since it was made.

Looks really stout. I have some 2.5" square heavy wall that may be pressed into service. It's rusty, but should work.
