Description

42" Dozer blade yellow in color and stenciled in black paint is "2025015  No. 1 of 1" on left side of blade ( left side when sitting on tractor). This came off a late 90s MTD tractor but when looking up blades for that era of MTD tractor, the blade for them looks nothing like this one. So I researched the # I found on the blade and it came up a # for an A/C B1 (and possibly others) from 1966 to 1969 approximately.  I looked up pictures of that blade and this one does look identical. The mount however looks very similar but a little different. It appears as if someone modified it for an MTD tractor or made a new one? I am not sure.  I am listing it in the classifieds because I do want to sell it, but I am not sure it really is an A/C blade. I am only going off the # on the blade and the brief research I did on it. I am actually a Bolens tractor collector and replaced the tractor this blade came off of with a 1964 Bolens 900. I have since bought 2 more! (1050 and 1053) I gave the MTD tractor away but was going to sell the blade. While researching the part # on the blade I found this site (it came up in the 1966 and 1969 A/C implement list). I figured if it was an original vintage blade I would rather it go to a collector than someone with a disposable MTD tractor. I joined the site to list this item and hopefully it is an item someone will want and can use. If anyone has info on this blade I am curious to find out what you might know. And I do want to sell it. It is in very good condition with virtually no rust. It has heen painted black over the original yellow. Tire chains, weights and all brackets for the MTD tractor goes with it.  $200 OBO. Thanks!

Steve, 

Welcome to the club and thanks for trying to save an old Simplicity attachment.  

"If anyone has info on this blade I am curious to find out what you might know."

Your research is correct, it's an early Allis 42" blade with a severely hacked hitch.  Here's a section from our sites "Research" forum about that blade:


Snow plow-dozer blade for Allis-Chalmers lawn and garden tractors


This year 'round, dual purpose attachment is a fast-working, easy-to-use snow plow in winter.   In warmer weather it becomes an equally efficient dozer blade for spreading and leveling top soil and for grading driveways and lanes.   The front-mounted blade adjusts to push snow or dirt to right or left. Runners at the bottom guide the blade, producing clean, smooth work.   Special curved blade design rolls snow or dirt into a neat pile, avoids building up on the blade. Blade cutting edge is replaceable.

They are fairly common and, IMO, not a highly valued "collectors" item.  The larger, "angle adjust from the seat" blade is more in demand.  The same blade is listed on our site with hitch and lift arm:

And good luck with your Bolens tractor collecting.  Keep in mind one of the unwritten tenants of tractor collecting: 

There must be at least one tractor for each attachment you own.
