Re: R322TX Snow Blade Not Discontinued?
When I got the snow blade home and out of the package, it was not quite as advertised. First off, it is bright yellow whereas online it showed an all black unit. I'm not too pleased at having to stare at a bright yellow plow illuminated by the bright LED headlamp. I'll know better once I have it mounted and use it.
It also is not branded as Swisher but rather as PowerBlade. I hope the mount I ordered separately will fit up to it. Everything looks to be the same as far as the shape and bolt pattern so time will tell. I will have to modify the mount anyway to fit the R322TX so if need be, I can make it fit the blade.
I took off the mower deck to get a feel for how much it weighs and how it balances. The 112 Combi is 55 kg which is considerably more than the bare snow blade. I found shipping weight specs of 39 kg on Amazon so I'm guessing that I will need to add about 20 kg of weight to it if I want to keep the same spring tension that the mower requires.
I don't suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it!
