well all i need some help

i have a decision to make and maybe some insight from u guys will help

i have a 18 auto tractor and am looking for a snow blade for it. Well i found two, both of which have issues with them. The first is located 4 hrs from me and has a bent frame and the top pivit point bracket is brokes but this blade comes with the essential rear axle bracket. The first package of blade and bracket and feet for blade is 200 dollars. The second option is a blade with no damage comes with weights and chains but does not have a rear bracket or the feet for the blade. this second package is blade weights and chains but no bracket for 250 and is located 2 hrs away???

idk what to do here guys ive seen the bracket and given someone who has one im sure i could fab up an identical one so idk what to do if someone wants to volunteer some insight it would be awsome.

Also if u do want to sell ur blade and bracket and weigts and ur relatively close to carroll ia id be interested.

as u can tell im so distraught on what to do here lol :thSick:

I think I paid around 45 for mine but watch it and wait till it ends then try to get it but if you are not able to get it I can help you make one because I want to make another for my 18 automatic

You may just have it positioned in the wrong place at the rear. Only way to tell is when you get it mounted. The D-Series guys will tell you how the mount goes on the rear...

Here are a few pics of my D series blade. BTW, the distance between the rear mounting rod and the front piviot bolt is 67 1/2". The blade is 56" wide.

well my blade is 54 and only measures out to be 5 foot so i dont think its the right blade plus my angle assembly is different also my blade does not have a strait section to it it is a a frame all the way back but we shall see what i end up with when its all said and done. and i get my rear mounting plate ugg i noticed the difference and just thought that was because it was a 54 blade and not the 56 for the d series but i guess with some metal and some fab ill make it work
