Hello - newbie here.

I recently purchased a Husqvarna GTH26V52LS - which from what I have read appears to be the same basic build as the new GT6000, except with a fabricated deck and a different engine.

That being said, I have been looking for a Craftsman plow blade for pushing snow. According to the fit chart the following blade is recommended for the GT6000 and any Sears model tractor with rear wheels over 23"

Other options I was considering and wondering if they would fit on my tractor without any special mods were the following:

Does anyone have any experience with these blades and know if they will mount easily to a GT6000 or Husqvarna GTH26V52LS

Thanks!

I believe you could make any of those fit pretty easily if they don't fit right up already. Your second choice blade is not as heavy duty as the other two. The Craftsman tractor models in question come off the same assembly line as the Husqvarnas. You also have this choice:

Which is nice if you some day want a high quality Berco snowblower. The Berco blades and blowers share brackets and can be swapped in just minutes.

Interesting on that Berco electric. I wonder how much modification would have to be done to get that baby mounted to an 05 GT5000???? Hmmmmmmm.......

I'm thinking all will fit. Just be aware that you're comparing apples to rhutabagas. The first one is a dozer blade and can move dirt and stones and snow and is very rugged. The others are snow (only) and are light duty. That being said, if all you're doing is scraping snow off a driveway, save a few $$, however if you're going to do any landscaping or have a gravel drive and want to level and grade the surface occasinally go for the dozer blade.

Good luck,
