Unfortunately the wheel weights and chains are for smaller tires, but the plow is the 48' dozer blade, so well worth it!

What a steal! One wheel weight costs more than $50.00

I'm wondering why this has two operating levers? Most of these Craftsman Agri-fab plows I have seen use one lever for lift/lower with a slide tube on the same lever for angling the plow. This setup resembles the Sears scoop operating system. I had/have both the plow and scoop, so this looks like a hybrid, or could it be a plow modified to fit the scoop mounting bracket???

Whatever it is, you got the whole enchilada. The chains can be lengthened to fit your machine - you just need some quick links and extra pieces from another set of chains. I've gotten chains from the Salvation army thrift store for not much money.

The so called GT Dozer blade has separate levers for raise/lower and angle. I'm headed to Harbor Freight to grab a small atv winch for the raise/ lower function.

good idea! If it is a similar mechanism to the scoop, it is an engineering student's dream - or nightmare. huge lever-arc for not much lift height and a terrible latch mechanism. I did the HF winch replacement on my scoop.

I used the solenoid in the pix so I could mount a toggle switch on the dash.

You may want to reconsider the winch. First they are slow raising/lowering and the handle will keep the blade from bouncing over uneven ground offering a little down pressure not available with a winch. Just my .02, but I still like the idea of a winch who doesn't, it gives you a little more confidence to run offroad a bit, make a few dog trails? I got a winch early spring to clear small saplings in the muddy areas, it just never seemed to stop raining so it payed for itself more than once.

Nice score. I picked up my dozer blade from Sears for not much more than that. It was a leftover floor model that was taken off the tractor. I had to go through the mess of parts to make sure they were all there. I am glad I have it!

I have a winch set up on my blade and it works great and I would not say it is slow.
