Well I scored yet another gem this week. Only paid 200 bucks for this hoping to mount it on my new b1. Always wanted a mid mount grader blade so pretty happy to add this to my stock

Nice piece. Great for show or use.
I've thought about making one, but my Allis is on injured reserve right now and the project has slipped down the list.

Nice score! I might be hitting you up for some measurements of the mount piece. Might make one for Alice!

I like the control of a mid mount, you're sitting where the blade is, so you see and feel the high and low spots. But I've wondered if they raise up high enough to clear high spots and such on a GT.

I take it you just use your feet to move the blade then correct I've never really seen any of them so this is new territory for me.

Ok what kind of measurements you want exactly? Also I can send you over photos too when I get it if those would aid in your build?

I have had little luck in having either a front or rear blade grade level.  Gravel goes up/down as the tractor does same, no common level. SO, is this type blade more on the pivot, less movement than those and stays more level quicker? I have seen long ago a fella doing a Sears with one on, but he still had to kind of keep his foot down on the one end to get it to start biting.  This common? They never seem to be very tall, does a bigger bite just have gravel lay over the top and fall off back, or dosen't one take that much at a time?  Guess I should watch someone with one some time to get more info.

Don't know if that would have worked better than my dozer blade when I was moving dirt in my back yard. I had removed the shoes and springs and put rods in place to make it ridged and tipped it forward some. Later made plates for the ends to hold more dirt. That would be very good for finish work though.
