Is there supposed to be, or is one available, lift assist on the Xl series. I have a G16xt I put a front blade on and it seem real heavy to lift. There was no lift arm with the blade, so I improvised with a piece of 1/2" black pipe flattened on the ends and drill holes for the pins. I determined the length with the blade down on level ground and the lift lever one notch forward of center. Is it normal for these blades to be this heavy (two hands to pull the lift arm back) or am I missing some parts some place.?
The manual for the blade shows an adjustable link between the tractor and the blade. The tractor manual does not show any assist either.
