That snow blade that I had is now going on the 1622. Has wider frame, so made a bracket to go under engine to sides of frame and bolt onto it with holes already there. The U-shaped lift arm from blade mounts to that bracket and new link goes to hydro lift, had to be longer. Worked good, lifts real high, was suprised. Now parts off again, been off/on all day fitting and painted, waiting to dry tonight. Go back on tommorrow I guess.

More pix, kinda hard to see much tho. Also put on some skid material on the footboards on three tractors. Had them all out in the sun today, was nice day and warmer. Worked on blade and tried it in gravel, works goo5ind, cept wants to bump out of one lock tab and turn left when using. SO, took it off to take to welder shop and have them make me plate for top with new slots for the lock lever to ride in. These were worn too much. Then, will need a better spring than what I had also. Also put army chains on, what a job!

Seems to be a fondness for RED here, sure standsout with some of them out in sun. Least it's not the IH red.....heh!  Way better than any Green too, yep! Yellow or Gold too is fashion around here, or BOTH together really!!

Never liked the yellow like they used. White was ok later, But, as you know, I like to be different! One in back is Snapper-King, you're just picking on me aren't ya? Hey, could use a brother for it. Hint!
