Default GTX 2100 Snow Blade

I have the new model Cub GTX 2100s. I found a used/craigslist 302 blade for the older 2000/2500 series and was wondering if that would fit my newer tractor/chassis.

Thoughts?

Looking at the Manual for the New 46inch Blade By Bercomac for the New 2000 series The Sub Frame for that Blade Looks the same as the Sub Frame for the Older 42inch Front Blade for the older 2000 & 2500 series So It Might be worth Trying. The tractor frames for the Most Part Between the 2500 & the Current 2000 series are the same

Nope, no can do...

Called my local dealer this morning and he confirmed the older 302 blades won't fit the frame. The new 46" blade is supposed to be 19A40022.

I never said it would Fit I just said it was worth a Try Because the Blade frames are very similar even thought the Current 46inch Blade is Made By Bercomac where the Older 42inch was made in House

Out of curiosity, I measured the frames of the 2000s, 2500s, and new 2100s. All the frames are about 12.25 inches wide from inside edge to inside edge.

The mounting bracket for QA attachments is different in its design and placement.

The lift arms on the new 2100 Series are now on the outside of the frame - previous 2000 and 2500 models were mounted on the inside.

I think with a little love you could get the blade to work, as Sergeant states. You'd have to modify the lift rod and rear lift arm bracket assemblies - but the blade's main frame may still bolt right up. It'd definitely be close - but worth a shot if you could save hundreds of dollars. We don't have any of the new 2100 Series blades in stock yet, so I can't attest to their quality of construction, but I know the one for the 2000 Series (190-302) is a decent setup.

I ordered a new blade setup for my 2100 series. It was definitely a bit pricey, but I knew there wouldn't be any used ones around. I didn't want to start making alterations to a brand new tractor.

My local dealer didn't have the blade in stock either. The local shop is expecting to receive it in a week or so.

Awesome - well, I have yet to see one in person, so if you get the chance to post pictures of it when it comes in, that'd be great!
