Can I use a larger front blade for my x304?

My x304 has a standard 44" front blade available, but I never see them come up used except for the overpriced secondary market places far away.
I've seen a [email protected] of 46" and 48" blades offered locally for reasonable prices.

Is anyone familiar with the interchangeability?
Am I stuck with looking for a 44"

Is there any cross reference for what other accessories I may be able to use on the X304 and same base platform tractors?

what I am seeing are blades from the lightweight bigbox store JDs in 46" and 48", vs the 44 offered for the x304.
I have to presume my tractor which is built substantially stiffer & sturdier that the 105s & 110s that these blades came from, can handle a few extra pounds, **** I can mount on a 280# snowblower, the blades should be substantially lighter.
Dealers near me are concerned with selling new components.
Example - I asked about a ball hitch adapter to use to park my trailer as opposed to trying to use my subaru on limited tarmac or sinking it into the clay yard, and the only answer I got was, "you shouldn't do that, john deere doesnt offer one, it would damage the tractor".
I have some other instances, but no sense hammering the point.
