Default 2500 Snow Blade.

Is this a fair price for a used blade? I know a new one would = ~$750.

Anything I should watch out for?

$300 OBO.

How difficult is the install? Looks like something attaches to the rear?

They are super easy to install, that's true. That's is a 190-302 blade - if you're looking for a parts diagram or for an operators manual.

It's a fair price, I'd say. I wouldn't pay much more than that for a used blade, though. Cub asks way too much for them in the first place. The best I can get them at 10% over dealer cost is 550.00.

They're a heavier duty blade than the ones for the 1000 Series. The lift mechanism is very simple. When you take the deck off, look at the two lift links that hang down. There's a bracket that slides over those links, keeping them stable and providing a plce for the lift rod to attach to. The rod attaches to that bracket, then up to the blade.

Blade angle on those can be changed from the driver's seat. There's a spring loaded latch and a cable operated handle to open an close it.

I say go for it. I can't find one of those around here used to save my life

Great, thanks. Can't tell from the mounting instructions but can you set this up so the blade itself is easily removed and leave the mounting assembly on the tractor? Y

You know so I can easily remove just the blade for storage and leave the mounting assembly still attached to the tractor?

No, the blade's mounting system will interfere with the "u-bar" bracket that holds up the front of your mowing deck. They are both "quick attach" implements. You can't have the plow's bracket installed and still use your mowing deck. If you use it for anything other than plowing, the easiest thing to do is just remove the whole assembly.

Hmmmm, found a new one on line for $669 + free shipping & no tax. That's a savings of $153 over local pickup @ dealer!

Just got an email from a local dealer. Claims they're not making any more of the 302's.

I figured. With the 2500s not being made anymore, we're going to see lot of that stuff phased out.

We have one new 190-302 still in the box...wish I could afford it!

And two of the ones for the 1000 Series Cubs. Those will still be produced though.

Bastich was going to charge me freight too. I'll have to look for the paper work but come to think of it, I think he charged me freight when I ordered the rear grass bagger in 2009. One of those "hidden" charges. Probably about $75 for the plow.

I bought one for my 2550 last fall off of Craigslist for $150. I called on it and it turned out to be my parent's neighbor that I grew up by. He had the original receipt from when he bought it and it was $350 about 12 or so year ago. He said that he was giving me a great deal, but he had no idea how good of a deal since they go for $750 now. haha I just put mine on last weekend and they are super simple to put on and work great as long as you get some weight. I have a walk behing snow blower and use the plow 99% of the time because is is so much more fun to plow. It probably takes a little longer the plow, but like I said it is much more fun. I say get it!

The only weak point I've had on mine was the metal piece that locks the angle. It is made of two thin pieces of metal and will each bend if the edge of the blade catches anything. I removed the pieces, straightened them and welded all the way around them and also the unused holes. Much better! Could also make one from a 1/4" piece of steel if needed.

The plate that 67Truckin in refering to must be a week point because the previous owner of my plow had a 1/4" piece of steel welded to mine and it works fine.

I think that gcbailey had the same issue with his after he hit something with the blade - it is indeed the weak point of the setup. At least it's easily worked around.
