My neighbor gave me this Craftsman blade (http://www.mytractorforum.com/showthread.php?t=144273) to grade our unpaved road. The blade is too small for my Craftsman rider, but I was thinking about using it on my 2414 PK.

Trouble is I don't know if mid mount, or front mount would be better, and what modifications would be required. I am not a fab guy, but I have a friend that owns a metal shop. Any help, suggestions, or pictures would be appreciated.

Some fab work will definitely be required front or mid mount. Front mount doesn't grade very well because you can't get enough down pressure. I would fabricate something to mount that to your rear lift and it may grade pretty good that way. Take a look at some rear graders that go on CUT tractors and you'll get the idea.

I bought a keen cutter 60 in back blade for under $300 new, bought type (0) pins and it works great on snow and gravel. May save you hours of Mods
