The blade itself looks similar to the one for my X500, but the mounting hardware is all wrong. I can't tell from that picture whether it could be easily connected to the mounting hardware for the X500 either.

I agree 100%. If the OP could show us a view from above the mounting hardware then we could advise on how much of that would be useful on an X500.

The picture is a bit small but normally you'll have to buy the parts in the red circle for the blade to mount on your tractor.

You don't need parts #19 to 24 because you already have them with your snowblower only #25, 26, 27 and 54.

I think if you have part #'s 19 through 24 with your snowblower setup then you should only need to acquire part #'s 25, 26, 27 & 54.

:dunno:

I bought the same 48" blade for my X540. It was brand new, never used but purchased for a GX345. I had to buy one bracket and two bolts/nuts where, like yourself, I already had the front mount setup from the snowblower. Stladrill has all the parts listed but two of the bolts are not needed if I remember right because the 325/335/345 and GX335/345 sub frame has some that I reused. I think you would be able to do the same.

It looks like it has the manual angle kit, mine did as well but I found that the control rod is too short keeping me from angling in both directions (it works in the center position and one way). The solution will be to extend the rod I have that is designed for the G/3x5 series or buy the right one for the X500 series. I chose to purchase $6 worth of parts to give the extension a try. I have yet to do so but will post pics when done. For some reason the mod does not work I'll have to buy the $50+ part.
