My challenge is which one gets the blade: Ford, Sears, or Cub? Maybe I need to make three. I would like to have the ability to tilt side-to-side. I need to look at some of the 'parts' I have been collecting for this. I have some galvanized pipe that looks close to sliding inside of another piece. If it will, then I can make it tilt. Also, I want it to rotate so the 'spoil' can go out either side. Kind of like a road maintainer/grader. That can be accomplished, just which one gets it? Decisions, decisions.
The Ford has a pusher blade, the Sears has a rear blade, but the Cub has neither.

Give it to the Cub so you have an entire road crew. :D

Here is a Sears Grader Blade manual that has tilt in it. This blade is for the Suburban tractors.

that is an excellent job on the grader blade.
I like your idea for controlling the angle adjustment.



Ditto !

Thanks for the manual. I followed a thread over at MTF where a guy built one of these. Came out pretty close to the one in the manual.

i have a front mount grader blade on my wards squire 12 works great, but if your pushing dirt with it to much will high center the tractor, but with those rear mounted ones like MF did i doubt you would have that problem, as much

Kenny, put the rear blade on the Cub, and center grader blade on the Sears, it has the best belly for this.
I tried to put one on my Ford and with out removing the deck lift frame there was not enough room to get decent lift.

That's what I was thinking, especially since I have the 26" tires on the back of it now. Gained a little clearance there.
