It looks homemade to me. Does it even pivot? I'd bring measurements if you look at it. Seems expensive to me. Look in the Manuals Section for some of the sales brouchures. Good Luck, Rick

I have the same blade and intend to make brackets so it will fit on a QT. Don't have any tubers, so can't help you out there. Good solid blade and, yes, it pivots.  Price is too high IMO.  Paul


**Edit  Mine is setup different, but looks to be made by the same company.

That is a Hydro-Speed blade set-up for a Bolens tubeframe. They were made by Hydro-Speed Equipment, Los Angeles with a branch in Hammond, IN. It was designed to mount in 3 ways: center, front, or rear. The correct pieces appear to all be there. I have one of those for my tubeframes. As for price, well, you don't see them complete very often. The holes in the blade were for mounting a rod with scarifiers on it; the scarifiers and available end plates were extra cost items, so not all of the blades have them.

If all the parts are there I think it's a fair price,not many complete ones around
