711219 Mid-mount grader blade

Recommended Posts

Finally!  For years! I hoped to find a mid-mount grader blade without having to pay $300 AND drive all day! $130 and less than an hour round trip I have one in pretty good shape!  Happy day! It's different than what I expected though.  Frame is more like a cut off dozer blade.  I'll add a picture if can figure out how O  my phone.  #711219 escapes me.  Garry! I need you!  Rear mount at the axle.  Angle control looks odd. No means from the seat. 

Crap.  Don't know how to add pictures from this phone.  Craig will harass me I suppose... When I get to my computer Craig!

The 9 makes it a 1974 model. You may need to make some modifications. Click on the picture.

I wondered if it might be a "D" series! 

Garry, I hope they pay you well here!

Dennis try this if it's Android if iPhone I can't really say but should be similar, just like the desk top go to choose files, then choose documents then images, at least that's how mine works, Jeff.

I know more about computers than all three combined but they might know phones better than I.  But I doubt it... 

 

Not completely intuitive to me but here.  Not sure where that creature came from...  Killed it before the fourth upload which just replaced the failed upload.

 

The angle adjustment looks altered, nicely but altered.

Will it fit a Classic? Or should I trade it?  Or would it justify buying a "D"?  Yeah!  Maybe that!

I might still be paddling if you mean finding a blade for my tractors but with some help I'm uploading pictures from my Android now!

That's definitely for a D series tractor. I wonder by the time you angle it how much wider it is then the tractor? On a C series it's a few inches wider on each end at angle. Even with 23x10.50-12s I will say that they do work well with front and rear wheel weights. As an equipment operator for a living and running a road grader from time to time (I used to operate one full time) I must say that the mid-mount grader blade is a fun attachment to use!!!

Perhaps? Someone made a very similar comment long ago so I began my quest for....

So I suspect you are to blame...

It could totally be me that started you on this quest for a grader blade. I'm definitely not the guy that said to sell one. I'm pretty much in the buying/ collecting mode for the past 30 years. The selling mode will probably be my wife's delema 😂😂

Any thoughts on whether to mount this on a Classic or XI?  Or trade?  Obviously mine is missing the angle adjustment lever, but I'm sure I can fab something.  

 

Anybody mount a "D" blade on a Classic?

I'd check the height of that blade first against any tractor you want to mount it to - might be too tall for any clearance to lift it off the ground .

Added 5xi grader blade measurements to this page. The only difference between this one and the one to fit the long frame tractors (C-Series except C-195 and 300, 400 and 500-Series) is the length of the rear frame and location of the rear crossbar. To bad you couldn't find someone to swap with that has what you need.

Certainly it would be nice to swap and have two happy campers. 

I very much hesitate to permanently alter a collectible.

I've always wanted a "D" but other than this blade I really don't need a "D". 

As always Garry, thank you!

      The following quotes and paragraphs are from a cousin of mine - Lew -  and his friend - Steve - . His friend found a few pics of old tractor/ dozer things and thought he might be interested... So I asked if it was OK to share them here with you all machinery nuts.   Lew, to me, others: These are some old photos from an MG friend, Steve, of his grandad's machinery. I thought you might appreciate his description of them even more. Interesting: gasoline only used to warm up the engine so it would use kerosene. Water injection in the 20s & 30s? Any of you remember that? Good Ol' Days.     Steve, to Lew: These would be my Grandad Olson's grading outfit.  Not sure where or when they were taken but probably late 1920s-early 1930s.  Could be Booneville, Missouri or Canton, Illinois or most any small community.  Tractor with the big roof is a 60 Cat or possibly a Holt that was bought by Cat.  One with the smaller roof could be a 30 Cat but looks more like something else.  Could be a Cleatrack or a Rumley Oil Pull.  Whatever it is it is pulling an elevating grader.  That scraped up dirt onto its conveyor belt and spilled it off into a wagon being pulled along side.  Same device being pulled by 60 Cat in first photo.  Big fuel tank held kerosene.  There was a small one for gasoline used only to start the engine and warm it up till the kerosene would vaporize.  There was also a water injection for added power under hard pull.   Idle RPM was 300 and red line was a whopping 600.  Lots of torque but just 60 horse power at the power takeoff and a few less at the draw bar.  Huge exposed flywheel had holes along the rim to insert a pry bar.  That is how you cranked it to start.  Had to be a Manly Man to do that.  These tractors were state of the art and biggest made at the time.  They could do a lot of work but were not fast.  Mules and side-dump wagons did all the hauling. Later, big bottom-dump Cat wagons with tracks took over that job.  Even those held less than a small dump truck does today.       Steve's words to me (now US) : Maybe someone in your group (That would be US  ) will recognize where the photos were taken.  I would think about 1928 or 29.  This was Olson Brothers Grading and they enjoyed the highway building boom.  In later years I played on some of these old Cats and even rode on one.  Maybe someone will know the make of the smaller tractor.  I think the two men standing on the elevating grader are my Grandpa and great uncle Harry and Arthur Olson but may be someone else entirely.  I would love to find out more about the photos and everyone in my family that might know is now gone.  Share if you like and let me know what you learn.

      Tractor vs. Implement cross reference chart for models from 1955 - 2000
      110 pages 513.43KB
       
      This chart lists the original attachment model
      The model that replaced the original model
      The model that was available when the list was made
       
      Often many models between the last two are not listed.
      You must go from year to year and follow the model numbers to see them all.
       
      For a complete list enter DNA in the search box and next to that box select Files from the drop down menu. Then click on the magnifying glass. Two pages of 33 results will come up in random order. Find the attachment you are looking for and click on it. The DNA for that model of attachment will come up. Look for the model of your attachment in the DNA list. They are organized from earliest to latest.
       
      STD for a model indicates that attachment was standard equipment that came on that model.

      Hey all, I have a 416-8 with a mid mount grader blade, I love the blade but Id like to know if there is a better way to get down pressure other than doing the not recommended and stand on the blade?  I saw someone posted something regarding a stiff lift link or something of that nature. Mine has something like a turn buckle with a 90 at the end that goes through the same lift arm that the mower deck uses.  I figured lenthening the turn buckle would lower the blade and allow me to apply pressure to the attachment lift arm to press down with the grader blade, but it doesnt seem to do much, especially when compared to putting a little foot pressure directly on the blade. I know you guys out there know all about this and I look forward to a little grader blade education. Thanks,
      Graeme
