Can get this blade for $125. For my QT16. Right one? What are the bars and springs on frame for? Pull out, swing up. Whole tractor w/blade, deck, 3pt is $650.

Not a bad looking machine , could those bars be to hold up the plow if using rear hitch ?  Im sure the Bolens members will tell us

The 19220 blade is the proper one for the Q Series tractor.

 

Not sure about the bars and springs but Alc could be right about those being a hold up feature.

Trip springs in case you hit something hard with the bottom of the blade.  Springs let the blade angle forward at the top to ride over the object - hopefully.

I'm 99% sure those spring loaded bars will align with the holes in the frame to hold the blade up and free up your lift.  You can see the hole on the left front portion of the frame (look by the bottom of the hood) in the picture from the front of the tractor.  I've been contemplating ways to do this on my 1050 without making it look like a hack job!

Bingo, that's exactly what they are!

As stated above, those pull out bars (with springs) swing up and lock into holes on each side of the frame and are for holding the attachment up for transport or storage.

 

$650 is a good price with 3 pt. and attachments-- if tractor runs and drives properly. Might even take less? 

 

That one may be a final series QT16 with an Eaton 11 hydro instead of the Sundstrand 15 used on all earlier models.

Yes, the bars are there so you can lock the front of the blade up and continue to use the 3 point. Good price for the blade with the push frame.

Yeah, was thinking of hooking into those frame holes too, but didn't know why you would want to hold it up. Run the rear, yep, sounds right! I'ld like to buy, but already have the tractor. 3pt and blade is my wants, but seperate almost price of tractor. Maybe it runs better than mine, haven't heard it run. Wait! Mama's loading the shot gun now, as a signal.......You Won't be buying !

So, they disguised that to look like a trip blade, but it's really solid and won't give if you hit a rock? Ok.

  Looks like the trip mechanism is all there and working.

I think some people are confused as to what springs are in question.  Looking at the second picture, the large coil springs are the trip springs.  As mentioned, it allows the blade to spring forward if the cutting edge catches.  Now in the same picture, back towards the front of the tractor you will see two bars that run parallel to the plow frame.  These bars pull outward from the frame and are used to lock the blade in position.  They are spring loaded and you can see the springs on the inside of frame rails.

I see them now, boy I was confused, because it sure looked like a trip blade! Thanks for clearing that up.

I looked it over very well the only plus to it was the 3 point. Asking price was way to high.

Yeah, I wanted the blade and the hitch too, but didn't need another tractor same as had, and was too much for me. I did have him start it and ran OK, seemed to be hard to make idle cleanly.  I let the blade stay, can find another if really want one. Will be next year before I get mine done anyway.
