Rear blade option

I have a Cub SC2450 and would like to get a rear blade. From the looking I have done and the intended use (snow removal, light grading), a 60" model would be about right. Does anybody have other opinions on size or manufacturer? Seems all have the capability to rotate/angle. I would like to be able to offset the blade to one side and even tilt (side to side) for cutting a slope. I'm looking for recommendations or suggestions or experiences. I've done a lot of dirt work but not with this small of a tractor. What works and what doesn't?

Re: Rear blade option

I went with a Land Pride 16 series. I remove the rake from the main frame and install the rear blade. Both are 60" I am still getting used to using the blade. They are not cheap but very well built.
SC2400

Thanks JRD_67
I'll have to look them up. Still in the information gathering stage so any info is good. Not so concerned with the cost (within reason) as getting the offset and tilt I think.
Thanks for the reply.

Re: Rear blade option

I've never heard of side-to-side tilt on a 3 pt attachment, unless you mean by adjusting the threaded rod positioning the lower lift arms (a slow and tedious operation). These aren't dozers.

I have seen a few blades that have the ability to tilt or angle one edge lower than the other to allow for cutting a slight grade. I don't want to adjust the 3pt arms to do that (you're right, slow and tedious for sure). The offset would allow me to work past the edge of the tractor and the tilt would allow me to cut a grade as I go. Not trying to replace a dozer, just trying to make it more useful for landscaping projects as I go along the way.
Thanks for the reply

I think I've seen what's his name from everything attachments
on youtube showing that type of rear blade. Was able to cut a ditch.

Interesting. I've never heard of that before. Please post some pics with more info when you've made your purchase.

Have to admit that your post forced me to do what I should have done earlier. When in doubt, Google it. Found the one that I wanted. Have not pulled the trigger on the order quite yet but soon. Has angle, tilt and offset features. Precisely what the doctor (so to speak) ordered.

Ain't got all this figured out on inserting a picture so that is the page where I found the blade. If you look at the rear of the blade, you will notice the slide feature and the slots also to allow for tilt. Looks like a winner to me.

RB16 series rear blade pushes the the horsepower envelope for a SCUT, but it is a 60", 6-way blade.

- 45° angle left and right.

- 1' offset left and right.

- 15° tilt left and right.

Thanks blacktruck,
That's a new one on me. I've worked with rear blades before and none had that option.

The 60" is probably all that you would want with a SCUT but I would always opt for a bigger attachment and then use it judiciously. I did the same with my tiller. Bought the next size bigger than the dealer recommended and it works fine but must be used carefully. I'm well acquainted with manufacturer recommendations and follow them but will push the upper limits when I'm buying/using for personal use.

These options are what really makes this a useful tool for landscaping. The ability to cut a grade or ditch and work outside the dimensions of the tractor makes the difference for me.
