Mid grader/Back blade

20 posts in this topic

ID: 1   Posted

Found this blade frozen in the ground at a :wh: collector who was selling his stuff. He said it went on a :D tractor but I didn't see how and I knew it wasn't a genuine :D part. Got it on the cheap. :thumbs: I'm going to make a mid grader back blade combo out of it for my 704.I'm using the fast hitch with one mount for the mid grader and another mount with an extension to mount to the rear plow mount for the back blade. I'll use the slot hitch to lift the blade. The blade itself says "Pacal" on the back of it and it's heavy! I wish I took pictures of it before the frame work mods. It's been all mounted and working and I just got it back from the sand blaster and now it's all in primer. I'm going to mock it all back on before paint in case I want to make any more changes. I'll take some pics with it all mocked up. Here are the components:

If it had said Simplicity on it, I might not have done it. At least I'm going to use it instead of letting it rot into the ground.

I always get your dog crap on my right front tire too! Tell your dog to stop crapping on my lawn!

Blade looks great. I take it you wont need to add weight?

THAT is a slick little setup you have there, and you did a great job with the fab work. Get some paint on it and you're all set. Can't wait to see the finished pics. :thumbs:

Weather hasn't been all that cooperative for painting. Got all the small stuff done by borrowing the construction shop at work where they keep the heat cranked and putting on a couple of coats at night. Yesterday was nice and have one side of the blade done. Hopefully by next weekend I'll have it completed and can start on the dump cart and post pics of the finished product! :thumbs:
