But think of the distance you could launch someone if you hit a bump while in road gear!

Appears your horizontal angle will be limited to 15 degrees or less? And a fixed vertical angle on the blade?  That would be difficult to make adjustable.

Hi, yes that's all the travel that's possible with a 4" stroke cylinder and angling is limited by the blade hitting the rear tires, there is limited  vertical adjustments  via a couple of bolts at the back of the blade attach mount, but once the blade is set to cut well it really isn't a needed thing, I have a couple of other mid mt blades and I like how they work and this one will work also. One thing I would like but don't want to get into the complications of doing it and that would be to have have horizontal / vertical control.

Hi all, worked on the blade today and made good progress, pretty much have the hitch done, got the angling cylinder mts completed and installed, the hydraulic cylinder and hoses and tried it and it works. This blade is from my Suburban and its 44" wide  my friend is going to bend me up one just like it but 54" wide  when I get it it will be to fabricate the mount and a cutting edge for it. Tomorrow it'll come off the tractor and go to the paint room.

Got the frame parts painted and assembled tomorrow will install it using the 44" blade until the new 54" one is completed, while I was waiting for the paint to cure I made up an electrical switch box and connector to power the sprayers and other 12 v powered things, I usede a wall switch box made a flat cover and mounted a lever switch and a circuit breaker in the box wires it with 14 gauge wire to connect to the battery and to a trailer 4 pin connector (have this set up on my other GT's and its handy)
