On my x530 i have the front weight bracket which limits how high i can raise the snowblower. i wanted to remove the bracket to get more lift but the hood is fastened to the bracket. Are there other smaller brackets i can get for the front of the hood? :thanku:

Here are a couple of pics of the weight bracket that I added to my old X500. This should be the same bracket the OP has put on his X530. As you can see in the pics the new weight bracket comes out and down. It hangs down a good couple inches lower than the stock front guard that the X500/X530 come with. I think this is why the OP can't get the lift he wants.
Bingo 8086bruce, you have it exactly :thThumbsU
When the dealer installed the front weight bracket they neglected to give me the standard bumper and they don't have it now so they ordered one for me.
Bummer. After taking off the weight bracket and installing the stock bumper, i did not get any higher lift. Oh well live and learn. When the weight bracket goes back on in the spring i won't have to worry about taking it off again.
One less thing to occupy my time.
