Hey everyone, I've got a Murray 42" plow that'd I'd like to make into a back blade. Any tips on how to go about it? My fab skills aren't the best. thanks

There have been abunch of threads on grader and box blades. Some with details on how they were built. Decide if you want rear or mid mount. The Murry blade may be too tall. Do a search. Good Luck, Rick

Here is one I made for the GT5000 out of a set of  disc harrows.I can still use the harrows as well by bolting them on and flipping it upside down..I dress my driveway with this setup and have for years.

What tractor are you putting it on? What kind of rear lift do you have?

If you plan on only using the hole for the trailer hitch, it is possible but you are gonna need some good upper body strength.

It's for a 1990 Craftsman 917.254450. Here is a pic of the blade and rear sleeve hitch mount
